Rennes set up dream semi-final

Rennes booked their place in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France with a 2-0 win over Ligue 1 rivals Lille at Stade de la Route de Lorient.

Kamil Grosicki fired the hosts into the lead in the 34th minute but the contest remained in the balance until stoppage time when Romain Alessandrini netted to seal Rennes' safe passage.

Philippe Montanier's men have been handed a dream draw in the semis with Ligue 2 Angers - who needed penalties to see off amateur side AS Moulins in the last eight - lying in wait on April 15.

The other last-four tie, on April 16, pits Monaco against Guingamp in an all Ligue-1 encounter, with the final to be played at the Stade de France in Paris on May 3.
