Dijon FCO return to the final
Coupe de la Ligue
Goal-friendly Evian TG FC suffered a 4-1 defeat against Dijon on a cold wet evening at the Parc des Sports. With the victory Dijon return to the Coupe de la Ligue final.
Things did not go as planed for Evian as striker Victor Andrade seized on an error by Dan Nistor to score an executed finish. Andrade would score his second goal of the match with a chip from about 20 meters out in the 24th minute
Later on in the 49th minute Andrade's name would be announced again. He scored off a breakaway and shot from 18 meters out. This would be a hatrick for the Brazilian who came in soon after Ademilson's departure a few years back. Ademilson who??
As the score was 3-0 Evian were very desperate for a goal as the clock was winding down. They would answer during the 66th minute as Leonardo scored their one and only goal. Was it enough??
Dijon would answer Leonardo's goal. Thanks to an error by Djakaridja Kone, Andrade scored goal number four during the 76th minute.
The current champions will be traveling back to Paris on the 19th of April. They will be facing fourth placed FC Lorient. This will be their second final appearance. Back in 2002 they lost to Girondins de Bordeaux.
