4 matches between L1 teams, including the “all-Olympian” clash… 2 teams from the National and 1 from the CFA… 16 teams hoping to reach the quarter-finals. But only 8 can do it…
There are still 2 L2 teams in the running, Montpellier, which won the competition in 1990, and Libourne, which made it to the quarter-finals in 2002. There are also 2 teams from the National: Vannes and Clermont. Clermont made the quarters in 1997 and 2005. Finally, the minnow of the last 16 is Montceau-les-Mines (CFA).
40 of the 89 trophies have been won by one of the 16 teams still in competition.
In the last 10 editions of the Coupe, 58% of the teams that qualified played their games at home. In 1999, this figure was only 25% and 38% in 2001.
