In a match that was postponed last week for safety reasons following a leak from a chemical plant in the area, 10-time winners Marseille went 2-0 up thanks to goals either side of half-time from Mathieu Valbuena and Moudou Sougou.

Rouen pulled a goal back through Remy Dugimont in the 67th minute but could not force an equaliser as Marseille secured a meeting with big-spending Ligue 1 leaders PSG in the next round.
