Lille beat Iris Club de Croix 3-0 to advance to the last 16 of the Coupe de France.

Lille have made it through to the last 16 of the Coupe de France after a comfortable 3-0 win over Iris Club de Croix.

Simon Kjaer gave the Ligue 1 side the lead in the 17th minute when he headed in from Adama Soumaoro's cross.

They scored their second goal of the match shortly after the break, when Tulio de Melo found the net.

The away side's win was made secure in the final minute of the match, as Ryan Mendes broke clear to set up Divock Origi for their third of the evening.

Lille will be hoping that they can progress further in the cup than they did last season, after losing to Saint-Etienne in the round of 16.
