Paris to meet Bordeaux in semi-final

Latest update : 2009-01-15

After beating Racing Lens (2-0), Paris St Germain will meet Bordeaux, who thrashed the club of the capital 4-0 at the week-end. Bordeaux disposed of second division club Chateauroux after a 2-1 win at home.

REUTERS - Paris St Germain advanced to the semi-finals of the French League Cup on Wednesday by beating second division Racing Lens 2-0 in a trouble-free rematch of last year's controversial final.

Some PSG fans held up an abusive banner aimed at their visitors during the 2008 title match, won 2-1 by the Paris side last March at the Stade de France.

The French League initially banned PSG from this year's edition but a civil court later quashed that decision and the two sides met again on Wednesday, this time at Parc des Princes, where no incidents were reported.

Mali midfielder Sidi Keita put PSG in front with an own goal on 13 minutes, sending the ball into his net with his chest from a corner, and substitute midfielder Jeremy Clement wrapped up the win from inside the box in added time.

PSG will next meet Girondins Bordeaux, who thrashed the Paris club 4-0 in Ligue 1 on Sunday and advanced by overcoming second division Chateauroux 2-1 at home on Wednesday.

Nice and second division Vannes progresses on Tuesday with wins over Le Havre and second division Metz respectively and will play each other for a place in the final.

The semi-finals are on Feb. 3-4.
