The heart of Zidane balance

Why speak of Zinedine Zidane in the context of this cup final in France? For the new sports director of Real Madrid is a significant figure to the two clubs. Before becoming the icon of French football, Zidane is the delight of Bordeaux in the early 1990s, along with Bixente Lizarazu and Christophe Dugary. It was under the Bordeaux jersey he will know his debut in 1994 against the Czech Republic (2-2).

But the former playmaker of Real Madrid also has a special relationship with Evian-Thonon-Gaillard. Since January 2010, he became a shareholder of the Savoyard club. Whatever happens this Friday, Zidane will be happy.

Bordeaux 3, Evian 0

Genuine surprise of the Evian TG competition will participate in his first final of the Coupe de France. It will not be the case of Bordeaux. The Girondins act old regulars appointment. Saturday, it will be their final and 10th. For now, the balance of the Bordeaux club is not very glorious as it won only three of its nine finals (1941, 1986 and 1987).

Evian has never beaten Bordeaux

Both teams have played only 4 times against each other and never again Evian has managed to get the better of Bordeaux. After conceding two draws 0-0 in his first season in the top flight in 2011-2012, the Savoyard club lost both games against the men of Francis Gillot this season at day 1 (2-3) and last week end of the championship (1-2). This final was the first confrontation between the two clubs in the Coupe de France

Bordeaux and the unthinkable doubled

The Girondins are vying for a performance as rare exceptional, ie a doubling Coupe de France Coupe Gambardella. If the professional team will face Evian in the "grand finale", young shoots will dominate Bordeaux Sedan, who got rid of the PSG in the semifinals. If victories, Bordeaux become only the third team in history to achieve this doubled. For the only time Saint-Etienne (1970) and Sochaux (2007) have managed this feat.

The steady Evian

The Evian TG was founded in 2007 with the merger of Football Croix de Savoie 74 (CFA) and Olympique Thonon Chablais (PHR). From 2007 to 2009, he carried the name of Olympique Croix de Savoie 74 before taking the Evian-Thonon-Gaillard. IChampion CFA (2007), National (2009) and Ligue 2 (2010): Evian experiencing an upward progression. Enter a title in the logic of recent years.

Bordeaux is a regular at the Stade de France

Bordeaux is going to play its final sixth (Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue confused). Only Paris Saint-Germain has done better with 10 visits in Saint-Denis in late season.

3 players have already raised the Coupe de France
