At the end of a very complicated match against Vertou (N3), Stade Lavallois won their ticket for the 7th round of the Coupe de France. A 2-1 success while Laval was led 1-0 then reduced to ten.

After eliminating Chantrigné in the 5th round, Stade Lavallois moved to Vertou (National 3) for a reunion two years later. In 2019, during the same round, the Tango eliminated Vertou at the end of the penalty shoot-out (0-0, 4-5 tab).

The start of the match was sluggish on the part of the Laval residents, rough, despite possession. With Geoffray Durbant holder, coach Olivier Frapolli had yet opted for a reinforced offensive sector but also completely changing his midfielder (Roye, Adéoti left at rest, Maggiotti replacing). The two teams return to the locker room back to back. Very few clear chances in the first half. Geoffray Durbant however had the opportunity to open the scoring in added time on a very nice return. but Vertou’s goalkeeper, Louis-Cédric Barret is on the lookout.

The second period quickly turns into a disaster scenario for Laval. Assistant coach Gilles Bourges is sent off (47 ‘). Then Vertou found the opening on the hour mark (Regy 56 ‘) and defender Bryan Goncalves in turn received a red card (61’) following an altercation with an opposing player.

Reduced to ten, the Laval residents are in difficulty, are very close to conceding a second goal but end up equalizing thanks to Baptiste Etcheverria who pushes the ball into the net, 1-1 (82 ‘).

And it is the team’s top scorer, Geoffray Durbant, who delivers his team at the very end of the match, by scoring a goal that asks nothing of anyone.

Stade Lavallois qualified with difficulty, but won its ticket for the 7th round of the Coupe de France. The draw will take place on Wednesday November 3 at midday.
