Grenoble & Rennes advance in the Coupe De France

Grenoble 2 – Monaco 0 (Coupe De France, March 18, 2009) Grenoble took an early lead when Daniel Moreira latched on to a long ball over the defence to beat the keeper with ease. After the break Grenoble struck a excellently worked second, slick interplay eventually releases Nassim Akrour who rounded the keeper to score from a tight angle.

Rennes 2 – Rodez 0 (Coupe De France, March 18, 2009) The Ligue 1 side went ahead when midfielder Stephane M’Bia scored in the 31st minute following a mistake by keeper Jeremy Soplaski. Unmarked striker Jimmy Briand made it 2-nil heading in a cross from Moussa Sow on the hour.
