Heavy rain last week forced the match to be postponed and Bastia came under pressure from their Ligue 2 visitors in the first half of the rescheduled fixture.

The game looked set for extra-time with neither side able to find a breakthrough in a tense opening 80 minutes.

But Modeste spared Bastia any blushes, netting the winner with seven minutes of normal time remaining.

Bastia now face Lille in the quarter-finals for a place in the last four.
