A BOLA – Lille with Renato Sanches eliminated by fourth-tier team (French Cup)


Another surprise in the French Cup. Épinal, a team active in National 2 (equivalent to the fourth step), beat Lille 2-1 and qualified for the quarter-finals of the competition.

Tiago Djaló and Xeka started at Lille, who even started the game well, with a goal from the experienced striker Loic Remy, in the 8th minute. In the second half, however, Epinal would come as a surprise, leading the turnaround with two goals from Jean-Philippe Krasso (56 and 62 minutes).

Renato Sanches was launched in the 74th minute, but Lille no longer avoided defeat, in the face of Épinal’s celebrations. It should be remembered that the day before ASM Belfort, also from National 2, had eliminated Montpellier.
