While waiting for the derby of Puy-de-Dôme this Sunday in the small cocote-minute of Edmond-Vacand in Mozac, four Auvergne clubs will try to get their ticket for the 8th round of the French Cup of football on Saturday. And it begins with a poster between Cantalians and Corsicans. It's in a sweet (and fresh) effervescence, that the US Saint-Flour (N2) is preparing to receive AC Ajaccio, 3rd in Ligue 2 after 14 days, 14 hours at Rene Jarlier.
After the big win (4-0) against AS Montlucon in the previous round, the Cantaliens will have to cross the Corsican mountain to achieve the great feat of the history of the club. Not easy, but the Cup still has divine surprises …
Clermont Foot will move to Bergerac (N2) at 14:30 for what looks like a trap match. The Perigourdins have left the stadium Bordeaux after the shootout. Like all Ligue 2 clubs, Clermont enters the competition.
The Puy Foot 43, who fights for his survival in National 1, will play Saturday at 15 hours in Marseille against the Armenian club Euga Ardziv (N3).
The last meeting scheduled for Saturday 16 November is for the Mills-Yzeure Foot (N2). The Bourbonnais will have the advantage of receiving Saint-Prive-Saint-Hilaire, a Loiret club of equivalent level. Kickoff at 6 pm at the Bellevue stadium.
The derby puydômois Edmond-Vacant
Finally the long-awaited derby puydômois is scheduled Sunday, November 17. The US Mozac, Piglet of Regional 3, will welcome the FC Cournon (R2) at 2 pm at the Edmond-Vacant stadium. The Mozacois dreamed of facing a resident of Ligue 2, starting with Clermont, but they can dream of a new feat in front of their supporters. Meanwhile, the town of the agglomeration riomoise is already adorned with green and white in the colors of the club mozacois.
