Rampant Evian thump Lorient
By Football News
Evian TG booked their place in the Coupe de France final after thrashing Lorient 4-0 on Wednesday.
Pascal Dupraz's side entered the semi-final as underdogs given their lowly standing in the Ligue 1 table.
Evian are fighting relegation and sit 18th, while the eighth-placed Lorient have enjoyed a good season.
But a surprise was in store at Parc des Sports as Evian came out breathing fire in the first half.
Serbian Milos Ninkovic opened the scoring for the winners after just 10 minutes, converting Ivorian Yannick Sagbo's assist.
And Sagbo turned scorer 10 minutes later before Kevin Berigaud got in on the act just after the half-hour mark.
Lorient manager Christian Gourcuff made two changes at half-time to try to get his side into the game but it made little to no difference.
Evian wrapped up the result with a substitute of their own as Algerian Nadjib Baouia bagged in the 80th minute, just moments after coming off the bench.
The winners will now play either Troyes or Bordeaux in the final on May 31.
