Kiev beats Paris and advances to semi-finals

Latest update : 2009-04-16

Ukrainian team Dynamo Kiev nabbed a convincing 3-0 home victory over French Paris Saint Germain, qualifying for the UEFA Cup semi-finals. The team will face the winner of the match between Marseille and Shaktar Donetsk.

REUTERS - Dynamo Kiev stormed through to the UEFA Cup semi-finals with a 3-0 home win over Paris St Germain on Thursday.

Dynamo, who had managed a goalless draw in Paris in the first leg, broke the deadlock in the tie after just four minutes when Guinea forward Ismael Bangoura scored with a low drive from just outside the box.

A blunder from Mickael Landreau helped Dynamo double their advantage 12 minutes later, the PSG keeper punching a deflected cross by Olexandr Aliyev into his own net. Ognjen Vukojevic wrapped it up on the hour, following up after Landreau had failed to block a free kick by Aliyev. Kiev will meet Ukraine rivals Shakhtar Donetsk or French side Olympique Marseille for a place in the final.
