Coulibaly opened scoring in the 13th minute before Abeid doubled their lead in the 94th minute.

Simon thought he had scored Nantes’ second goal in the 63rd minute but his effort was ruled out for offside.

The last time Nantes won the French Cup was in the 1999/2000 season, and they have won it three times in their history.

On Friday, Josh Maja was brought on as Bordeaux beat visiting Le Mans in the French Cup.

Maja’s Nigerian teammate Samuel Kalu was not in the squad for Bordeaux.
