Toulouse, Grenoble, Guingamp reach last eight

Latest update : 2009-03-04

Ligue 1 sides Toulouse and Grenoble reached the quarter-finals of the French Cup after wins, against Boulogne-sur-Mer and Dijon respectively. Ligue 2 side En Avant Guingamp, who defeated top flight Le Mans 1-0, also qualified.

REUTERS - Bakary Kone scored a late winner as Ligue 2 side En Avant Guingamp defeated top flight Le Mans 1-0 to reach the quarter-finals of the French Cup on Tuesday.

Kone got the game-clinching goal in the 83rd minute.

A Xavier Pentecote double earned Toulouse a 2-0 win at Ligue 2 side Boulogne-sur-Mer. Pentecote, who has featured in only three Ligue 1 games this season, opened the scoring four minutes before the break when he latched onto an Alexandre Bonnet cross.

The 22-year-old striker grabbed his second on 62 minutes by beating Boulogne keeper Florian Bague from close range.

Grenoble went through after winning a penalty shootout 4-2 at Ligue 2 side Dijon following a 1-1 draw.

Defender Stephane Morisot's 15th-minute opener for the home side was cancelled out three minutes later by Grenoble striker Nassim Akrour.

The draw for the March 17-18 quarter-final ties will be made on Sunday.
