Rennes stun Lille to reach French Cup semis

Paris: Rennes shrugged off their Ligue 1 struggles to reach the French Cup semi-finals on Thursday with a 2-0 win over high-flying Lille.

Polish international Kamil Grosicki and Romain Alessandrini scored the goals that gave Rennes a last-four clash against second division Angers.

The result also brought an end to Lille’s eight-match unbeaten run, a stretch which has helped them into third spot in the Ligue 1 table.

The semi-finals, being played on April 15 and 16, will also see Monaco face Guingamp.
