LYON, France (AP) — Lyon reached the semifinals of the French Cup by beating second-division Grenoble 2-1 on Tuesday.
Bradley Barcola and new signing Jeffinho scored first-half goals and Lyon held on after Amine Sbaï netted for the visitors in the 74th minute.
Lyon signed the 23-year-old Jeffinho from Brazilian club Botafogo for 10 million euros ($10.6 million) just before the transfer deadline in January.
The other three quarterfinal games are scheduled Wednesday.
Marseille, which eliminated Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the tournament, hosts second-division Annecy. Lens is at Nantes in an all-Ligue 1 matchup, and Toulouse hosts second-division Rodez.
