Latest update : 2010-04-14

Paris Saint-Germain barely held off Quevilly in the semi-final of the French Cup Wednesday to deny the valiant fourth-division club a fairytale final.

REUTERS - Paris St Germain ended minnows Quevilly's amazing French Cup run by beating the amateur side 1-0 to reach the final on Wednesday.

The fourth division club fought valiantly until Turkey striker Mevlut Erding finally broke the deadlock in the 53rd minute by heading home the winner.

PSG, who have lifted the Cup seven times, will face Monaco in the final on May 1 at Stade de France. The principality team advanced by beating Racing Lens 1-0 after extra time on Tuesday.

Quevilly, a side from Rouen suburb who had knocked out Ligue 1 sides Stade Rennes and Boulogne on their way to the semi-finals, hosted PSG in Caen, 120 kilometres away from their home, because their own stadium did not meet the safety standards.
