BY foxsports • January 10, 2011

Second-division leader Evian upset Marseille 3-1 in the round of 64 of the French Cup on Sunday.

Evian led 2-0 early on the waterlogged pitch after midfielder Cedric Barbosa struck in the 12th minute and striker Yannick Sagbo sent goalkeeper Elinton Andrade the wrong way four minutes later.

Marseille pulled one back when Evian defender Cedric Cambon scored an own-goal in the 59th minute, but Kevin Berigaud restored the two-goal margin with a close-range header in the 89th.

Marseille, which has won the French Cup a record 10 times but the last came in 1989, is the 10th topflight team to be knocked out at the weekend.

Last year's finalist Monaco lost 3-2 in a penalty shootout to fifth-division club Chambery on Saturday.
