Paris Saint-Germain beat Brest 3-1 on Wednesday to punch their ticket to the French Cup quarter-finals and qualify for next week's Champions League tie. A week before hosting Real Sociedad at the Parc des Princes in the Champions League last 16, PSG secured a confidence-boosting win against their fellow Ligue 1 rivals. Kylian Mbappe got the French champions off to a good start with the opening goal, with Steve Mouane opening the scoring for Brest before Danilo Pereira and Goncalo Ramos completed the scoring.
The crowd was reduced to 10 when Lilian Brasier was given a red card for two foul tackles on Mbappé.
PSG next face Lille in Ligue 1 on Saturday before visiting Real Sociedad next Wednesday.
Elsewhere, Lyon beat Lille 2-1 to move into Thursday's quarter-final draw, where they will be joined by Nice, which won 4-1 at Montpellier.
The fifth tier Saint Priest Cup ended with a heroic 2–1 defeat to Ligue 2 Valenciennes.
