Paris St-Germain 2-0 Monaco

Edinson Cavani and David Luiz sent PSG through at the expense of Monaco

Paris St-Germain reached the French Cup semi-finals as goals from David Luiz and Edinson Cavani beat Ligue 1 rivals Monaco at Parc des Princes.

The sides played out a dull 0-0 league draw on Sunday but it took Luiz just three minutes to head home Ezequiel Lavezzi's free-kick for PSG.

After the break, Marco Verratti set up Cavani in the penalty area and he beat Maarten Stekelenburg with a low shot.

PSG join St Etienne in the last four, with two quarter-finals on Thursday.

Stade Brest take on Auxerre in an all Ligue 2 clash and amateurs Concarneau, who play in the fourth division, host Guingamp.
