Marseille beats Rennes 1-0 to reach last 16 in French Cup

PARIS (AP) — Midfielder Mattéo Guendouzi’s second-half goal was enough for Marseille to beat Rennes 1-0 in the French Cup and advance to the round of 16. Marseille won the last of its 10 French Cup trophies in 1989 and winning it again is a top priority for determined coach Igor Tudor. His team counts eight straight wins in all competitions. Jordan Veretout picked out his France teammate Guendouzi with a pass and Guendouzi’s curled side-foot finish took a small deflection before beating Turkish goalkeeper Dogan Alemdar in the 59th minute.
