Alejandro Bedoya: On target as Nantes beat Lorient

LOSC currently sit third in the top-flight but that did not stop Sebastien Haller scoring the only goal of the game for the Ligue 2 outfit with seven minutes of extra-time remaining to shock Rene Girard's men.

Fellow second-tier side Troyes will join Auxerre in the fourth round as they beat Valenciennes 3-1.

VA currently sit bottom of Ligue 1 and their season went from bad to worse as Yohan Court's early strike and a brace from Ghislain Gimbert rendered Mathieu Dossevi's goal a mere consolation.

Tours are also through after beating Championnat National outfit Amiens 3-1.

Youssef Adnane and Bryan Bergougnoux put Tours two up shortly before Jonathan Tehoue was sent off for the visitors.

Despite being a man short, Amiens got back in it through a Nicolas Seguin own goal but Xavier Chavalerin sealed the win a minute from time.

Last season's beaten finalists Rennes needed extra time to get past Ligue 2 Nancy 2-1.

Adrien Hunou had Rennes ahead before half-time but Remi Walter sent the game into extra time in the final minute of the 90.

Nancy were to be left heartbroken, however, as Conceicao Emerson grabbed a winner 11 minutes into the the first extra period.

Goals from Abel Aguilar, Oscar Trejo and Wissam Ben Yedder saw Toulouse through with a 3-1 win over Cretail, for whom Nicolas Belvito scored just after the half-hour.

Alejandro Bedoya and Georges Nkoudou were on target as Nantes beat Lorient 2-0 in an all Ligue 1 clash while Araujo Ilan scored the only goal as Bastia beat Ajaccio.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
