Les Herbiers won as many games in the French Cup (including penalties) as they did in the league this season – nine
Three days after playing in the French Cup final, Les Herbiers have been relegated to the fourth division.
Les Herbiers only lost 2-0 to Paris St-Germain at the Stade de France on Tuesday, but were beaten 4-1 at Beziers to drop to the Championnat National 2 – the same level as PSG’s reserve team.
Two teams below them picked up results to put them into the bottom three.
Les Herbiers are having a celebration on Saturday at their Massabielle ground to commemorate their cup run.
The club – who only spent three seasons in the third tier – were the fifth team from below the top two divisions to reach the French Cup final.
