Bordeaux, decimated by 21 positive cases for Covid-19, was eliminated by Brest (3-0) in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France on Sunday.

Despite the protests of Bordeaux president Gérard Lopez denouncing a “lack of respect”, the meeting, one of the three posters of the sixteenth between two Ligue 1 teams, was not postponed by the Federation. Bordeaux coach Vladimir Petkovic, who could only call seven pros, had to complete his group with 13 young people from the reserve team, which plays in National 3 (5th division). And with more than half of their starting team (six players) from the reserve, the Girondins, already not very dashing 17th in Ligue 1, suffered against the entire Brestois.

“This 3-0 does not really reflect the game” for Petkovic

The Gironde team with a very youthful face made a mistake after half an hour of play. Its young defender Tijany Atallah, 18 years old and not the slightest minute disputed with the professionals, came late in the box on Romain Faivre (35th). The penalty was transformed by Steve Mounié. Things did not get better afterwards: Jimmy Briand came out on injury (51st), and his replacement Amadou Traoré, also affected, spent only nine minutes in the field.

Timothée Pembélé then conceded a second penalty, converted from a panenka this time by Faivre (81st), author of his 8th goal of the season. Jérémy Le Douaron increased the score at the very end of the match (90th + 4).

“This 3-0 does not really reflect the match,” said the Girondin coach. The young players responded well, unfortunately we ended the match with two more injuries. “” We created a lot of situations, but we ended them badly for lack of accuracy “, for his part analyzed the Brest coach Michel Der Zakarian, who believes that” in the spirit and in the attitude, it was good. “
