Coupe de France, Round of 32

Stade de la Meinau, Strasbourg

RC Strasbourg Alsace 2 - 1 LOSC

Nuno Da Costa (Strasbourg forward): "We did what it took by scoring early in the first half and then scoring after the break. After that, we just needed to control things. We mustn't under-estimate Grenoble in the next round; we need to go there with the same mindset we had in first two Coupe de France matches."

Christophe Galtier (LOSC coach): "The match went better than it did against Troyes on Saturday in terms of what we tried to do, as well as the commitment and discipline. But it wasn't enough to get past Strasbourg; we made some big mistakes to concede goals and we paid a heavy price. We absolutely have to get a result against them in the league on Sunday, so we'll look to recover as quickly as possible so we have as many players available as possible."
