Caen survived against Ligue 2 Red Star, prevailing 1-0, while Amiens beat Valenciennes by the same scoreline. Dijon overcame Schiltigheim 3-1 and Guingamp came from behind to beat Stade Pontivyen of the fifth tier 4-2.
Martinique’s Aiglon du Lamentin, the last team from outside France left in the draw, lost 3-2 after extra time to Ligue 2 Orleans.
