JS Cherbourg Manche handball will face Saran this Saturday in the semi-final of the playoffs. A meeting to be experienced in full on France Bleu Cotentin.
The Mauves are finally fixed! Qualified for more than a week for the Proligue four-way final thanks to their victory against Massy, the Cherbourg residents were waiting to know their opponent in the semi-final. It depended on the result of the return jump-off between Nancy and Dijon.
Winner in the first leg in Dijon, Nancy was hot, but Nancy finally passes despite a defeat (26-24) this Monday during the second round. Nancy qualify thanks to the away goals rule!
The final will be played the next day, still in Créteil. Saran, first of the regular season, is already guaranteed access to the Starligue next season. To climb into the elite of French handball, JS Cherbourg will necessarily have to win its two meetings … which would mean D1 and the title of French Proligue champion.
