    Time:90'
    • Olympique Lyon
    • Quevilly
    • 90+4' The full-time whistle goes, and Lyon have won the Coupe de France with a 1-0 victory over US Quevilly - the dream is over for the third-tier side, who have been absolutely superb! Lisandro's first-half goal separates the sides, and Lyon claim some silverware! Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+3' Grenier does well to waste time for Lyon as he draws a challenge form Vardin on halfway, and he goes down very easily to ensure a free kick for his side.
    • 90+2' A long ball from El Kharroubi upfield gives Quevilly another chance to create something in the Lyon half.
    • 90+1' Lisandro looks like he's trying to kill time as he protests about a kick to the thigh, and he's told to carry on by players of both sides!
    • 90' We're in added time as Lyon keep the ball inside the Quevilly half, and it's desperate defending from the men in yellow.
    • 89' El Kharroubi goes route one as he launches a powerful kick upfield, and Capelle is unable to bring it down.
    • 87' What a chance that was for the sub to make a real impact for Lyon and put this match beyond any doubt.
    • 85' CHANCE! Substitute Jimmy Briand flies through on goal with just El Kharroubi to beat, but the Quevilly goalkeeper does superbly to make himself big and save!
    • 84' Lyon are not looking convincing in the final stages of this match, and may well have to settle for this slender lead.
    • 83' Gomis also comes off as Jimmy Briand is introduced for Lyon.
    • 82' That is the last of the action for Laup, who is replaced by John-Christophe Ayina.
    • 80' Grenier goes into the book for a late challenge on Laup, and that was a poor tackle.
    • 79' El Kharroubi collects comfortably as Lisandro fails to make an impact from a forward position and ends up firing in a tame shot.
    • 78' Gomis drags a very poor shot wide after fine work from Kallstrom out on the left flank!
    • 76' Joris Colinet is booked for a clumsy challenge on Lisandro, and Lyon have the ball safely in the Quevilly half.
    • 75' Eventually, after having a very long chat with the referee, Kallstrom is booked and Quevilly have a free kick...
    • 73' Kallstrom fouls Beaugrard in midfield as he flies in with a late challenge, and he's very lucky not to be booked.
    • 72' Quevilly have won their only encounter with Lyon, it was on 10 March 1968 in the last 16 thanks to a goal from Daniel Horlaville (1-0).
    • 71' Both managers are preparing further substitutions, and Quevilly will have to use their changes wisely with a lot of tired legs out there.
    • 70' Quevilly have won four of their last five Coupe de France encounters with top-flight sides (against Rennes & Boulogne-sur-Mer in 2009/10; against Marseille & Rennes in 2011/12). Only exception: their 1-0 defeat against Paris SG in 2009/10 (0-1).
    • 69' Gourcuff makes way now for Lyon as Grenier comes on in his place.
    • 67' Karim Herouat comes on to replace Julien Valoro for Quevilly.
    • 65' Anthony Laup is put through on goal and he hits the crossbar as his fierce left-footed shot is tipped onto the woodwork brilliantly by Lloris!
    • 63' This is much better from Quevilly, who are really taking the game to Lyon now.
    • 62' Only two lower league clubs have managed to win the Coupe de France: Le Havre in 1959 & Guingamp in 2009. They were second division sides when they lifted the trophy. This would make Quevilly the lowest-ranked side to win the Coupe de France if they beat Lyon on Saturday.
    • 61' Quevilly enjoy a good period of possession as they stroke the ball around in midfield, and Lyon are forced to harry around impatiently.
    • 59' Quevilly are taking part in their second Coupe de France final, 85 years after their defeat against Marseille in 1927 (0-3). 85 years is the biggest gap between appearances for the same club in a Coupe de France final.
    • 57' It's tough work for Lyon as Quevilly continue to defend stoutly, and the Ligue 1 side are having to battle for every ball.
    • 55' Kallstrom lets fly with a powerful free kick, but it sails over the crossbar with El Kharroubi flat-footed!
    • 53' Quevilly continue to defend for their lives as Lyon pile on the pressure, and it's one-way traffic at the moment.
    • 51' Lacazette hits the bar as his shot from 25 yards takes a vicious deflection and cannons off the underside of the crossbar with El Kharroubi comprehensively beaten!
    • 49' Lyon break at pace, and are looking very good value for their lead as they press forward once more.
    • 47' El Kharroubi lumps a long ball upfield as Lisandro puts him under real pressure, and he's playing like a sweeper!
    • 46' The second half is underway, and the Quevilly supporters continue to treat the match like a festival in the stands!
    • 45+2' The half-time whistle goes at the Stade de France, and Lyon lead 1-0 courtesy of Lisandro's 28th minute strike! Quevilly have battled valiantly thus far, and remain very much in this final.
    • 45' El Kharroubi makes a very fine catch in his penalty area under enormous pressure, and the goalkeeper stands firm.
    • 43' Gourcuff continues to cause havoc in the final third, and he wins a free kick for his side with trickery out on the right flank.
    • 41' Capelle flies forward for Quevilly, but Colinet is penalised for muscling Cissokho off the ball!
    • 39' The crowd are really getting swept up into this contest as Quevilly, a goal down, break from deep.
    • 38' Lloris races out to gather a loose ball on the edge of the Lyon penalty area, and he distributes the play once more.
    • 37' Gourcuff scuffs his shot in front of goal as the ball breaks loose to him after fine work from Lisandro outwide on the left!
    • 35' The Lyon fans make themselves heard as Gomis takes the ball down the right once more, but he cannot produce an end product.
    • 34' Lyon break at pace from deep, but this time Lisandro loses the ball from underneath him and the chance goes.
    • 33' El Kharroubi claims the high ball and lumps it upfield, but there is no Quevilly player on hand to collect it.
    • 32' Diarra trips up Kallstrom, who takes a very exaggerated tumble as he hits the deck and Lyon have a free kick.
    • 31' Reveillere and Gourcuff keep the ball out on the right, but the latter cannot quite get a cross to land near Lisandro.
    • 30' Lloris bides his time over a goal kick as he eventually lumps the ball up to Gomis.
    • 28' GOAL!!!! LYON ARE IN FRONT! Lisandro puts Lyon in front as El Kharroubi flies out of his goal and pulls out of a challenge with Gomis, and Lisandro is on hand to fire the ball into the empty net!
    • 26' Whistles ring out around the ground as Quevilly's Laup is twice fouled with niggly challenges.
    • 25' It's desperate defending from Quevilly as Gomis heads wide at the back post, and they're living very dangerously!
    • 23' Frederic Weis makes a stunning clearance off the line as Gonalons fires a low shot on target with El Kharroubi out of position!
    • 21' Gourcuff swings over a deep cross to the back post where Gomis meets it, but cannot bring it down into his stride.
    • 20' Gonalons dictates the play in midfield as he drops inside and exchanges passes with Kallstrom.
    • 19' Babary Kone comes on to replace the injury-stricken Dejan Lovren.
    • 17' Lovren goes down clutching his ankle and back after a fall on halfway, and he is being stretchered off the field.
    • 15' What an effort from Jouan, who is allowed too much space to run with the ball before he fires a stunning drive which zips agonisingly over the crossbar!
    • 13' Lisandro continues to cause havoc in the final third, and he is very elusive and tricky to mark.
    • 12' Lisandro hits the post! What an effort from the Lyon forward as he takes a high ball down with an exquisite touch, before unleashing a fierce shot which cannons off the near post!
    • 11' Lacazette is roundly booed as he takes a tumble on halfway, and the referee just looks on with disdain.
    • 9' Lisandro rather fortunately wins a corner despite it looking as though he got the final touch out on the left, but El-Kharroubi claims the resulting set piece.
    • 8' Gourcuff holds the ball up superbly and brings others into the play, but he cannot quite create an opening.
    • 7' Lyon have a good spell of pressure as Lisandro Lopez almost steals in at the back post to convert a deep cross from Lacazette, but he cannot quite turn the ball in from an acute angle!
    • 5' Quevilly are the third club from the third level of French football to reach the final of the Coupe de France, after Nîmes in 1996 & Amiens in 2001.
    • 3' Jouan makes a fantastic run down the left, and Colinet fires a shot on target with Lloris making a comfortable save!
    • 2' The horns continue to blast out as a terrific atmosphere is generated, and the play is rather frenetic.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Stade de France, and Quevilly win a corner early on with Lloris having to fly out and rather unconvincingly claim the high ball.
    • 19:40 Right, we're just five minutes from kick off now in this Coupe de France final. What do you think the scoreline will be this evening? Which team are you supporting? Get in touch with me on Twitter!
    • 19:35 There is rain expected for this evening's clash, but the atmosphere is already absolutely incredible at the Stade de France!
    • 19:30 To prove that an upset is possible, Quevilly need only look at second-division Guingamp, who beat Rennes 2-1 in the 2009 final.
    • 19:25 Amazingly, Quevilly have pedigree in this competition. They reached the final once before, all the way back in 1927, and around half the members of manager Regis Brouard's current squad were at the club when they lost to Paris St-Germain in the semi-finals two years ago.
    • 19:20 Quevilly have already accounted for top-flight sides Marseille and Rennes, so the prospect of facing the seven-times champions towards the end of what has been a disappointing campaign for them will not fill the part-timers with too much dread.
    • 19:15 Tiny third-division side Quevilly will face French giants Lyon at the Stade de France in the final of the Coupe de France after a sensational run to the showpiece match.
