The 2014 Coupe de France Final decided the winner of the 2013-14 Coupe de France, the 97th season of France's premier football cup. It was played on 3 May at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, Paris.

In the final, Guingamp beat Rennes 2–0 in a Derby Breton to win their second Coupe de France title. By winning, they qualified for the Group Stage of the 2014-15 UEFA Europa League, and the 2014 Trophée des Champions against the 2013-14 Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.


The match was Rennes' sixth final, of which they had won two (1965 and 1971). Their most recent final was in 2009, which they lost 2-1 to Guingamp. That was Guingamp's second appearance in the final after their unsuccessful attempt in 1997 when they lost on penalties to Nice.[1]

Rennes, of Ligue 1, began their campaign in the Round of 64 on 4 January at home to fellow top-flight team Valenciennes, winning 8-7 on penalties. In the next round, they won 2-0 at third-tier Boulogne, with goals from Anders Konradsen and Silvio Romero. In the Round of 16, away to Ligue 2 Auxerre, they won via a first-half Foued Kadir goal. Rennes then beat Lille 2-0 at home, with goals from Kamil Grosicki and Romain Alessandrini.[2] In their semi-final on 15 April, Rennes beat second-tier Angers 3-2 at home, with Ola Toivonen, Grosicki and Jean Makoun scoring.[3]


Guingamp, also of Ligue 1, entered into the Round of 64, where they played away to third-tier Bourg-Péronnas on 5 January and won via first-half goals from Claudio Beauvue and Mustapha Yatabaré. They went away again in the Round of 32, to fifth-tier Concarneau, and won 3-2 in extra-time after a 1-1 regulation-time draw, Yatabaré (2) and Beauvue again the scorers. In the Round of 16 Guingamp travelled to Corsica to play another fifth-tier club, Île-Rousse, who had reached that stage by defeating holders Bordeaux. Goals from Grégory Cerdan and Mustapha Diallo sent Guingamp into the quarter-finals, where they played AS Cannes and won 2-0 away again, through another Yatabaré brace. In the semi-final on 16 April 2014, Guingamp played at home against their first top-flight opponents, Monaco. Yatabaré scored early on, but Dimitar Berbatov equalised before half-time. The scores remained level into the second half of extra time, in which Guingamp scored twice, through Yatabaré and Fatih Atık.[4]



Jonathan Martins Pereira scored the first goal for Guingamp with a volley from the edge of the area in the 37th minute, and Mustapha Yatabaré got the second in the 46th minute with a powerful downward header from Steeven Langil's left-wing cross.
