Toulouse champions: Gabriel Suazo is the first Chilean to win the French Cup

Gabriel Suazo, played his 17th game in the Toulouse shirt this Saturday and already has a trophy under his belt. Perhaps, in their heart of hearts, they didn’t plan on becoming champions so soon, and even less so in a competition in which PSG dominates practically everything at home. the solid thing is The national team won its first trophy in Europe in its early career. His club beat Nantes 5-1 to win the French Cup in the 2022-2023 edition.

The iconic Stade de France in Saint-Denis was the scene of clashes between clubs with tradition. President Emmanuel Macron himself attended the match, watching it from a privileged tribune. What was surprising was that it was not in the calculations or the stakes that the development of the game was much more favorable to the Violets. Not even the most optimistic fan could have imagined a 4–0 lead after half an hour.

Usually, finals are tight, tight, where nothing is given for granted. But Nantes was guilty of a peculiar naïveté. And Toulouse smelled it and took advantage of each approach to convert it into a goal. Suazo started as a left back and performed at right back. In keeping with the process of the meeting, he was not a permanent offensive agent. However, he protected his bar well and assisted when he found himself with room to maneuver.

Four minutes passed and defender Logan Costa opened the account with a header. The first shot of the team led by Philippe Montanier. The defender completed his brace after 10 minutes with another header following a free kick. Every license from the Yellows was captured and used by the Violets, who played in white. Nantes had the ball with the loss, while the winning team retreated. In that sense, The Chilean winger remained settled in his position. He also saved his team in the 12th minute when he dislodged a ball on the goal line.

Virtually every shot on goal by Toulouse ended in a goal. But this did not happen. The fourth came on 31′, again by Dlinga, who grabbed a bad rebound from Lafont.

An unusual distinction for this type of definition. For the third time in the competition’s history, four goals were scored before the break. With this panorama, the second part was almost for decoration.

Toulouse opted to take care of their comfortable advantage and Nantes handled the ball and looked for a more decent decline. In the last quarter of an hour, they got the advantage through a penalty. Ludovic Blass worked hard and gave up.

Since Tefeci didn’t want any surprises, he ended the opponent’s confusion with the fifth goal. On 79′, after the rebound from the free kick, Zakaria Abukhlal takes a strong shot and hits the goalkeeper ‘Little Hand’. the game is over. The title goes to Toulouse.

A distinction must be made about the club’s record. For the representatives of the city, this is the second title. But this is a first for Toulouse FC. Although there was another Toulouse before the current one, whose origins date back to 1937, the current institution has a history dating back to the 1970s. For the same reason, the 1957 French Cup title belongs to the same old cast. The trophy clinched this Saturday is the first for the team in this competition.
