Penalty shootout record shattered

The record for shots on goal in an official match in France was broken on September 11 in a Coupe de Nouvelle-Aquitaine match between Javerlhac and Belvès.

On Sunday September 11, a French record was smashed in the greatest anonymity. Until the publication of an article by our colleagues from Free Dordogne released this Wednesday. This informs that the Coupe de Nouvelle-Aquitaine meeting between Javerlhac and Belvès resulted in a penalty shootout that went down in the annals of French football. Unable to separate after regulation time, then additional time, the two clubs then automatically switched to penalty kicks, without going through extra time.

The actors didn’t know it but they were going to make history. Always so close, including in this new exercise, the two Périgord towns mark each other and quickly reach the bar of ten shots on goal on both sides. Then that of the twenty, so 40 in total. And that of the 44, meaning that the eleven players from both sides, including the goalkeepers, have already appeared twice in the penalty area. During the 3rd passage, the situation was finally resolved.

Brest and Dinan dislodged from 1st place

Anthony Boulestier de Javerlhac, usually so precise, sent his penalty on the post. “On the first two, I felt the pressure. There, it fell well. I went there serenely. I should have probably put the same concentration there” registered the player at Free Dordogne. This failure put an end to a 35-minute long penalty shootout punctuated by 46 attempts (20-21). A new record in France. In December 2021, Brest and Dinan had already done well with their 24-minute session (12-13) which had seen the residents of Ligue 1 reach the 16th finals of the Coupe de France.
