Montpellier 0-3 Paris St-Germain

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored one goal and provided the assist for another as Paris St-Germain eased past Montpellier to reach the last 32 of the French Cup.

Montpellier ended PSG's treble hopes last season in the last 32.

And they frustrated the visitors for more than an hour this time until Ibrahimovic flicked the ball to Clement Chantome for the opener.

Ibrahimovic then headed home before Lucas Moura's injury-time goal into the bottom corner.

Laurent Blanc's side were without forwards Ezequiel Lavezzi and Edinson Cavani, who have been banned for two games by the club for missing a training camp in Morocco.

Ligue 1 champions PSG will face Bordeaux, the 2013 French Cup victors, in the next round.
