Coupe de France Review: Bessat knocks Lyon out, Quevilly progress

Nantes beat Ligue 1 leaders Lyon 3-2 in Tuesday's Coupe de France action, while fourth-tier Quevilly also won.

Vincent Bessat's hat-trick sent Ligue 1 leaders Lyon out of the Coupe de France on Tuesday, while fourth-tier Quevilly also progressed.

Bessat's stunning treble helped Nantes beat Lyon 3-2 in the only all-Ligue 1 clash of the day.

The 29-year-old midfielder, who scored just once in 2014, picked an ideal occasion to fire as he sent Nantes into the competition's last 16.

With 20 Ligue 1 goals already this season, Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette has clearly been the division's standout forward.

And he carried his form into the French cup competition with a fifth-minute strike for the travelling side.

But Hubert Fournier's side were derailed by two Bessat strikes in the space of three first-half minutes.

Nabil Fekir levelled in the 59th minute for Lyon, but Bessat's 89th-minute effort sealed his hat-trick and Nantes' progression.

Quevilly shocked Ligue 1 outfit Bastia on penalties after the two sides were locked at 1-1 after 120 minutes.

Neither side could score in the first 90 minutes but Bastia seemed on the verge of progression when Djibril Cisse netted.

Cisse's 107th-minute strike was cancelled out by Adama Sarr, though, and Quevilly took the momentum into the penalty shootout.

There was no such drama for Ligue 1 Metz, who beat Avranches 3-0 - although all three goals did come in extra time. Avranches finished the match with 10 men.

Fourth-tier sides Yzeure and Concarneau booked their spot in the next round as well.

Yzeure beat Ligue 2's Valenciennes 2-0, while Concarneau also ousted a second-division side, defeating Dijon 1-0.

Elsewhere, Auxerre beat Jura Sud 1-0 while Iris Club de Croix edged Andrezieux 2-1.
