After two unconvincing victories, an elimination followed: Žan Vipotnik and teammates couldn’t threaten Nice’s progression in the cup competition
This weekend, in the land of the Gallic roosters, the sixteenth-finals of the cup competition are scheduled, in which the team defended by Slovenian international Žan Vipotnik sadly, but quite predictably, concluded its journey. The team, competing in Ligue 2 this season, suffered a decisive defeat against Nice.
The Slovenian forward started the match in the starting eleven and made a serious attempt in the 26th minute, but the visiting goalkeeper, Marcin Bulka, saved his shot. The guests took the lead ten minutes before the end of the first half when Evann Guessand found the back of the net, securing the lead after the first half.
Immediately at the beginning of the second half, the team competing in Ligue 1 increased their advantage as midfielder Morgan Sanson successfully converted a penalty. The hosts responded very quickly, with Jeremy Livolant placing the ball into the bottom left corner of the net in the 59th minute, but their joy was short-lived as Sanson interrupted it a minute later with his second goal of the match. Žan Vipotnik concluded his appearance in the 75th minute, and a moment later, Gaetan Weissbeck softened the home defeat with a superb goal.
Among the Slovenian representatives in French club football, Luka Elsner will also be in action tomorrow, as Le Havre will be visiting Chateauroux in the cup competition.
