Minnows stun Auxerre to reach French Cup quarters


Auxerre last won the cup in 2005 and players such as Eric Cantona, Djibril Cisse, Bacary Sagna and Enzo Scifo were once on the books of the now second-tier outfit.

Neupocoussek Mendy and Karim Tlili got the goals as the French Riviera minnows enjoyed their greatest exploit.

Top-flight Angers also go into the hat for the quarter-finals after a 1-0 win at third-tier CA Bastia in Corsica while Bordeaux beat Lorient 2-1 in an all top-flight clash.

Marseille play Monaco on Wednesday while champions PSG travel to second-division Niort on the same night.
