French League Cup: Toulouse sink Nantes

PARIS, Sept 19 (Reuters) -Toulouse extended their strong start to the season by winning 2-0 at troubled Nantes in the first round of the French League Cup on Tuesday.

Toulouse, a surprise fourth in Ligue 1 after six games, comfortably won the day's only tie between top-flight clubs.

Young forward Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro opened the scoring from close range after 43 minutes after Nantes goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic had failed to deal with a distant effort from Bryan Bergougnoux.

Teenage midfielder Alexandre Bonnet doubled the advantage by heading home a Bergougnoux cross just past the hour.

Nantes, second from bottom in the league standings, produced a dismal display which was bad news for coach Serge Le Dizet, whose job is reported to be at risk.

Lille struggled, needing an own goal from defender Mamoutou Coulibaly in the 53rd minute to win 1-0 at second division Istres.

The northerners, who qualified for the Champions League via its preliminary round, had protested after having to enter the League Cup in the first round, unlike Olympique Lyon and Girondins Bordeaux.

Those two sides were granted a bye through to the second round for having qualified directly for European club football's premier tournament.

League Cup action continues on Wednesday with Nancy entertaining Nice in a re-match of last season's final won 2-1 by Nancy.
