Marseille stunned by minnows Évian

Évian Thonon Gaillard FC delivered the shock of the Coupe de France round of 64 as they saw off Olympique de Marseille, while Stade Rennais FC put seven without reply past AS Cannes.

Ligue 2 frontrunners Évian Thonon Gaillard FC pulled off the upset of the Coupe de France round of 64 by seeing off Olympique de Marseille 3-1, with the French champions the only top-flight outfit to tumble on Sunday.

Seven Ligue 1 clubs suffered shocks on Saturday but none were higher profile than UEFA Champions League contenders Marseille, who fielded a relatively strong lineup on a difficult pitch. Évian edged ahead through Cédric Barbosa after 12 minutes and they stunned the visitors again just moments later when Yannick Sagbo side-footed past Elinton Andrade.

A Cédric Cambon own goal close to the hour mark gave OM a platform to fight back, but they were unable to equalise and conceded a Kévin Bérigaud header with four minutes remaining.

Stade Rennais FC steered clear of any such danger as they delivered the biggest win of the round, seeing off third-tier AS Cannes 7-0 thanks in part to two goals apiece from Alexander Tettey and Victor Montano.

Stade Brestois 29 and AS Nancy-Lorraine also defended the honour of Ligue 1 teams but both had to work tremendously hard, Brest sealing a 1-0 extra-time victory at sixth-tier FC Issy-les-Moulineaux and Nancy needing a penalty shoot-out to dispose of fourth-division hosts Aurillac FCA following a 2-2 draw.
