Lyon fall to lowly Metz in a night of shocks in France

Lyon 1 – Metz 3 (Coupe De La Ligue, November 11, 2008) Victor Mendy shocked the Stade Gerland, planting a header home to give Metz the lead at Lyon. And the giant-killing was on the cards when Sebastien Renouard fired in the second after the Lyon defense failed to deal with a cross. Cris headed Lyon back into the game after the break, only for Rocchi to pulled Metz further ahead after calamitous goalkeeping left the forward with an open goal.

Sochaux 0 – Lens 1 (AET) (Coupe De La Ligue, November 11, 2008) Alaeddine Yahia connected with a fabulous header from a corner in the 109th minute to seal the tie.

Bordeaux 4 – Guingamp 2 (Coupe De La Ligue, November 11, 2008) Benoit Tremoulinas gave Bordeaux a perfect start with a superb solo effort 12 minutes in. Gabriel Obertan doubled the lead, before the forward added a third on the half hour. Eduardo Santos pulled a goal back from the spot, before Eduardo made things interesting by bagging his second. But hopes of a comeback were snuffed out by a Cavenaghi penalty.
