Coupe de France: OM falls against fans of Canet-en-Roussillon, Pyrenees-Orientales-Club

The essential Canet-en-Roussillon (N2) manages the feat by eliminating the Olympique de Marseille in the second round of the Coupé de France on Sunday 7 March.

The unthinkable actually happened in Perpignan. In the midst of a sporting and non-sporting slump, Olympique de Marseille sinks again and bows to the fans of Canet-en-Roussillon on Sunday 7 March in the second round of the Coupé de France.

This win is anything but an obstacle for the Catalans, who play in Nationale 2, the fourth division. The Canétois is perfectly geared towards defense and can be combined to make the Olympic defense dizzy. He delivered an impressive performance. The symbol of this success: the perfect copy of Posteraro, author of a great free kick (20th).

Despite Milik’s equalization, Canet’s players did not give up on one of the rare occasions in Marseille and it is again Posteraro who gives Bai an assist who steals his ball against Yohann Pelé.

The Olympians could not create any danger and delivered a pathetic match for the last of Nasser Larguet on the bench. The evening’s captain, Boubacar Kamara, evoked the feeling of “shame” that invaded the Marseille players after the final whistle. This isn’t the first time OM has been humiliated by an amateur club. The Marseille club had already been eliminated by Andrézieux in the 32nd final in 2019 or by Carquefou in 2008.

But that defeat seems like one of the worst routes given the context. The competitions and training of amateur clubs have been particularly disrupted since the end of October. In contrast, OM put together almost a typical team and had much more extensive preparation. This meeting will leave lasting memories for the Canétois, the authors of the performance of the round of 16.
