Richard Pelletier scored for Plabennec to give Lille a scare

Second-half goals from Nolan Roux and Vinicius De Melo ensured Lille avoided embarrassment at fourth-tier side Plabennec, who suffered a 3-1 defeat in the last 32 of the Coupe de France.

The Championnat de France amateur side actually took a shock lead just before the half hour through Richard Pelletier, although Lille were on even terms almost straight away after Nicolas Kernevez put the ball into his own net.

Roux put Lille ahead three minutes after the break and De Melo made sure of the win midway through the second half as the Ligue 1 side booked their place in the last 16 of the competition.
