Valere Germain brace lifts Monaco into Coupe de France semifinals

Valere Germain celebrates one of his two goals Monaco's win on Tuesday.
Monaco are into the semifinals of the Coupe de France.

Valere Germain scored twice to help Monaco beat Lille 2-1 in the Coupe de France quarterfinals on Tuesday.

The Monaco captain opened the scoring with a remarkable goal in the 35th minute, tapping the ball around a Lille defender before firing a shot into the roof of the net.

And after Carlens Arcus was sent off for Lille five minutes later, Germain tucked home a cross to double Monaco's lead, which held up despite Anwar El Ghazi's late consolation for the visitors.

Guingamp also advanced to the semifinals with a 1-0 win away to fourth-tier Frejus thanks to Alexandre Mendy's goal five minutes after half-time.

Monaco and Guingamp will be joined by the winners of Wednesday's quarterfinals as Paris Saint-Germain travel to third-division Avranches and Angers host Bordeaux.
