streaming, TV channel and components / Coupe de France (16th)

Lens travels to Brest on behalf of the 16th finals of the Coupe de France, this Sunday (9 p.m.). Here is all the essential information about this game.

Dashing runner-up to Paris Saint-Germain, Racing Club de Lens has absolutely no intention of neglecting the Coupe de France. This is the message that Franck Haise wanted to convey to his players before the trip to Brest, this Sunday evening, at the stage of the round of 16 of the oldest competition.

The Coupe de France is a great competition, it allows you to have very different but also tempting oppositions. Like Monday evening’s match (between the Pays de Cassel and Paris Saint-Germain, editor’s note). In any case for us it’s a competition where we want to do the best possible. I don’t make a choice, we have two competitions to experience, it’s Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France. We try to win every game. »

It is therefore with the status of great favorite that Lens will approach this match. But the Sang et Or will have to be wary of a Stade Brestois which has regained its solidity. “It’s a very compact block which is lower. It looks like the boulder that Auxerre offered us in a similar configuration. They do not hesitate to leave possession. They are capable, on projections and phases, of doing great harm. They want to be strong first and foremost,” Haise pointed out.

The Lens coach will also find Eric Roy, new Brest coach, a few years after a common collaboration that he has not forgotten. “He was part of a time when things were not simple. They had to be rebuilt to try to get a climb. We must not forget those who made it possible to move forward. I’ve always got on well with him, even on an excellent note. He had ensured that after a year, while I was with the reserve, that I would stay at the club. The reunion between the two men should be warm.
