PARIS (AFP) - Lille continued their resurgence under new boss Frederic Antonetti as they reached the quarter-finals of the French League Cup with a 1-0 win over second-tier Laval.

Djibril Sidibe struck 11 minutes from time at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to send the Ligue 1 side through and extend Lille's winning run to four matches in all competitions.

Guingamp twice recovered from a goal down at home to Nice as Yannis Salibur netted at the end of normal time and again in extra time, cancelling out a pair of strikes from Alexandre Mendy, before converting the decisive penalty in a 4-3 shootout victory following a 2-2 draw after 120 minutes.

Wissam Ben Yedder grabbed a brace for Toulouse in a 3-1 win at 10-man Rennes, while Lorient eased past Ligue 2 leaders Dijon 3-0 with goals from Benjamin Jeannot, Romain Philippoteaux and Walid Mesloub.

On Wednesday, holders and record five-time winners Paris Saint-Germain start their defence against 2013 champions Saint-Etienne at the Parc des Princes.

Lyon will bid farewell to the Stade de Gerland when they host second-division Tours ahead of moving into their new 59,000-capacity stadium in January, while Marseille visit Bourg en Bresse.
