Coupe de France – round of 32: the pressure mounts in Montauban, which receives La Roche on Sunday

the essential
At 28, the captain of Montauban FC-TG (R2) Loïc Laincer will live the strongest moment of his career on Sunday evening (6:20 p.m.) against La Roche Vendée (N3). He wants to have fun… and see the 16th!

In Toulouse, he had encouraged his teammates from the stands, suspended. Sunday, it is on the ground that he will lead his group. “At Toulouse-Métropole I had asked my friends to do everything so that I play a 32e, says Loïc Laincer, they did it! It’s great to live these moments. This is of course the most important match of my career. We can not wait to be there. In the street, people who know me call out to me and all talk to me about this match. It’s nice. That makes noise (smile).”

For this 32e in the final, Montauban is part of the Petits-Poucets but it is clear that the opponent, La Roche Vendée, undefeated in National 3, is not scary. “We’re not going to start worrying about each other. We’re taking care of ourselves; of course it’s tough in front of us, but we’re not going to show up thinking it’s already over, quite the contrary. We wants to continue to write the history of our club and of football in the department” continues Loïc.

And it’s on a grass field that could be complicated (the USM Pros in Pro D2 faced Aurillac last night), that the Méfécistes will have to create the feat.

An additional difficulty? “It is clear that we are more used to playing on the synthetic pitch of Montauban; but we bend to the circumstances. Perhaps the state of the lawn will level the values ​​​​a little more. It’s up to us in this case to take advantage of it.”

If the Tarn-et-Garonne hoped to take a “big” in the draw, the cards are now reshuffled, especially since they have found good colors in the league. “We are indeed on a good dynamic in Regional 2. There is a good osmosis in the group and I think the coach has found the right balance.”

So, all that’s left to do is…
