Ligue 1 strugglers St Etienne found something to cheer about when they thrashed Nice 4-1, while Ligue 2 side Sedan knocked out top-flight AJ Auxerre 2-1.

RC Lens went through with a 4-3 victory at Montpellier, with defender Romain Sartre netting the winner in extra time after the opening 90 minutes ended in a 3-3 draw.
