SoccerSwiss Cup: five French-speaking derbies on display this Saturday

This second day of the first main round will culminate in the Trois-Chêne stadium where CS Chênois welcomes FC Sion from 5:30 p.m.

Coach Paolo Tramezzani will have to ensure that his players do not fall into the trap set for them by CS Chênois.

BASTIEN GALLAY / LPS

The Trois-Chêne stadium will be the scene of the most anticipated duel this Saturday. A first main round of the Swiss Cup which looks like a “revival” since on November 6, 1993, CS Chênois of Radu Nunweiler, then in LNB, had managed the feat of leaving, at the end of an unbearable suspense concluded by a penalty shootout, which was then, with its many internationals, one of the best FC Sion in history.

Does David Joye’s team have the means to do it again? For this, the magic that sometimes accompanies the Cup will have to take place in the Geneva grandstand. Because the three levels that separate the two clubs today and the very encouraging start to the championship made by the Sédunois do not necessarily encourage optimism on the Trois-Chêne side. Not to mention that Christian Constantin was already in charge of FC Sion 29 years ago. And that he has no desire to relive the same nightmare.

Bavois – Yverdon Sport (4 p.m.)

Among the four other derbies in Romandie on the program this Saturday, Bavois – Yverdon is another very attractive poster. If the two northern Vaudois neighbors follow diametrically opposed performance curves in their championship – while the visitor has rather successfully started in the Challenge League, his host has not yet scored a single point in the Promotion League -, the meeting you of the Poplars may be more undecided than it seems.

“There is in any case the will to create the exploit”, explains Jean-Michel Viquerat, the boss of the FCB. In Bavois, the absences of Bühler and Dzeljadini will force coach Bekim Uka to compose a new central defense. Very bad news for Yverdon: the long-term injury of Hugo Fargues, who suffered a torn cruciate ligament in his left knee against Wil a week ago. We should not see the midfielder at the Municipal stadium again until next season.

Portalban/Gletterens – Grand-Saconnex (5.30 p.m.)

Both newcomers to the 1st league, Portalban / Gletterens and Grand-Saconnex (5.30 p.m.) have the same hope of reaching this milestone in order to offer themselves a more attractive poster next September. Having started better in the league (one victory for one defeat against two losses for their opponents), the Genevans will however have to move on a field where it is never easy to win, even if the Friborg residents lost there at the start of the season. facing, it is true, Vevey-Sport, the great favorite for promotion.

Saxon – Meyrin (6 p.m.)

Qualified for this main round thanks to its recent victory in the Valais Cup, Saxon (2nd league) will have the complicated task against Meyrin (1st league). Especially since the Valaisans will not start their championship until next weekend while the Genevans, who are among the best teams in their category, already have two matches in their legs. They also easily disposed of Sion II last Saturday (3-0).

Italian CS – SLO (20 h)

The last Romand duel of the day will take place on the small pitch of Bois-de-la Bâtie where the Italian CS (2nd inter league) will host Stade-Lausanne-Ouchy. Here too, the Genevans would have to outdo themselves and their opponents have a day without for us to witness a small sensation. As with all teams in the amateur leagues, the Italian CS was only entitled to friendly matches to prepare for the arrival of a team that had a good start in the Challenge League, despite its very recent defeat against Schaffhausen. at Samaranch Stadium. One more reason for Anthony Braizat’s players not to take this match lightly.
