Chambery beat Monaco and Brest in the previous rounds.

France striker Guillaume Hoarau scored a hat trick as holder Paris Saint-Germain downed fourth-division side Martigues 4-1.

Martigues played with 10 men for 70 minutes after Boubacar Dembele was sent off for fouling Clement Chantome.

Peguy Luyindula scored PSG's other goal.
