The start of the game makes sense in favor of Pau, who take advantage of the ratings of the locals. In a far free kick, Gouveia whips up the penalty area, and rookie Chaves takes advantage of a foul by a defender when clearing to send a powerful shot past Bedouret (0-1, 26th position).
Returning from the locker room, the pace of the match drops and, on rare occasions, the Lucitanians lack subtlety in the final gesture and the Esquires remain upbeat.
Pedore Cup Champion
At the end of the match Belhassen’s men retreated and tried to gain time. Gilles Dufeux then asked his players to ramp up the pressure to get back into the game. An immediate reaction from Codato, who puts the two teams into a tie after a huge rebound (1-1, 85).
In the final seconds, Alain sends a millimeter center over Pauline’s head, who sees the ball touch the shaft (90+5). The shots-on-target lottery will have to separate the two Bearn clubs and it is necessary to wait for a second stop by Bedouret against the ninth shooter Pau to send his side into the third round.
