Ligue 1 sides Le Mans, Marseille and Metz all saw off lower-league opposition on Saturday to progress through to the last 32 of the Coupe de France.

After seeing Lens slip up 1-0 at home to Ligue 2 outfit Niort on Friday, the precedent had been set for the upset and another was on the cards when amateur side Selongey took Le Mans to extra time.

However goals by Gervinho and Marko Basa - the defender´s second of the match - helped Les Manceaux to a narrow 3-2 win.
