Concerns about Paris St Germain’s ability to dominate the French league remained after the club had to rely on two late goals in order to get past lower league Niort in the Coupe de France game.
PSG were coming up against the French Ligue 2 outfit in order to secure a place in the quarter-finals. The club remain on course for a treble after managing to get a 2-0 win. The result could have been very different had it not been for Javier Pastore’s 78th minute goal. This finally broke the deadlock between the two teams and Edinson Cavani was able to make the game safe with an injury time goal.
