OM composted their ticket for the knockout stages of the Coupe de France on Sunday evening, beating the fans of Chauvigny (0-3).
For its first match of 2022, Olympique de Marseille was very diligent to record its second victory in the competition. On the lawn of the Beaublanc Sports Park in Limoges, filled with 8,000 spectators, Jorge Sampaoli’s men controlled the match and won thanks to goals from Arkadiusz Milik (30e), Cengiz Under (41e) and Amine Harit (80e).

The Poitevins, who had eliminated Le Havre (L2) in the 8th round, then Chartres (N2) of Jean-Pierre Papin before the truce, seemed rather impressed and never worried the Phocaeans. “We tried to give everything, it was a dream to get here, I hope everyone took a bite out of it,” said Naissim Ayadi, player from Chauvigny. We didn’t have the strength to win but I have no regrets. We had a good trip, it ends here but with a great celebration. ”
After beating other amateurs (Cannet-Rocheville) in the previous round, OM are therefore continuing the adventure and avoiding, for the moment, a new disappointment against a Petit Poucet. Which is a sad habit for them in recent years (6 eliminations against amateurs since 2008).
The Olympians, who did not concede a goal for the 600th game under the Marseille colors of Steve Mandanda, will know their opponent in the round of 16 Tuesday night before the last meeting of these 16th (Lens-Lille).
