On Thursday, February 8, the 1/8 finals of the French Cup took place at the Stade Robert Diochon, in which Rouen and Monaco met.

Although the Monegasques arrived for the match with the main squad, the team of the third strongest French division was practically in no way inferior to the representative of Ligue 1.

In the 35th minute, Folarin Balogun put the visitors ahead with a penalty.. However, the home team managed to get even before the break — Clement Bassin scored a goal into the locker room.

After the break, Addie Hütter's team tried to avoid a penalty shootout, but they failed.

And it was not for nothing that they wanted to avoid a penalty, because they lost there! Although everything looked like Monaco would win: after four attempts, Monaco was leading 4:3. However, after Ruan equalized, Balogun was unable to convert the decisive strike.

Then Rouen was accurate both times, while Magnes Akliusz made a miss that cost his team a spot in the quarter-finals. Rouen will play in the quarterfinals for the 21st time in its history and for the first time since 1999.
