AP Sports Writer

PARIS (AP) — Dimitri Payet sent Dimitry Bertaud the wrong way as Marseille beat Montpellier 5-4 in a penalty shootout to reach the quarterfinals of the French Cup. Payet’s calmly taken strike clinched it for 10-time Cup winner Marseille after the match went straight to penalties after ending 1-1 at Stade Velodrome. Fourth-tier Versailles produced an upset when it won 1-0 at second division leader Toulouse. The dozens of Versailles fans who traveled some 670 kilometers (415 miles) down south were jubilant at the final whistle. Second-tier Bastia won 5-3 on penalties at top-tier Reims after the match ended at 1-1. Nancy lost 2-0 at home to second-tier rival Amiens.
