Coupe de France, Round of 16

Stade des Alpes, Grenoble

GF38 0 - 3 RC Strasbourg Alsace

Thierry Laurey (RC Strasbourg Alsace coach): "We were lucky enough to be very effective tonight. In the Coupe de France, the main thing is to qualify. We knew we would be in danger here and that Grenoble are a competitive side who can get forward quickly. Given the number of changes, the lads didn't link up so well early on and Grenoble posed us a lot of problems. But I don't regret rotating the squad tonight. Everyone has to feel involved. During a tough time in the league, the cup is a wonderful breath of fresh air."
