Evian 1-1 PSG (Evian win 4-1 on pens): Ibrahimovic misses in shoot-out as les Parisiens crash out of cup

Ten-man Paris Saint-Germain missed out on a place in the last four of the Coupe de France after a hard-working Evian side saw off the Ligue 1 leaders on penalties on Wednesday, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic missing in the shoot-out.

Javier Pastore had put les Parisiens 1-0 up after 10 minutes before Saber Khlifa levelled the scores for the hosts on the stroke of half-time.

The scores remained level throughout the second half and after extra time, before Cedric Barbosa's penalty confirmed Evian's place in the next round after Ibrahimovic had missed his own spot-kick.

The hosts started strongly and could have taken the lead after five minutes as Khlifa and Milos Ninkovic linked up superbly, only for the latter to drag his effort wide of the PSG goal.

Evian were made to pay for the miss moments later as Christophe Jallet picked out Pastore to volley past Bertrand Laquait, with the Frenchman unable to keep out the drive after getting a hand to the ball.

The goal sprung les Croix de Savoie into life as they went in pursuit of a quick equaliser, but Nicolas Douchez was on hand to comfortably deny Yannick Sagbo and Kevin Berigaud, while David Beckham's 25-yard free kick drifted over the bar at the other end.

PSG dominated possession, but Evian continued to test Douchez from distance with the Frenchman forced to palm away efforts from Mohammed Rabiu and a long-range strike from Khlifa.

The visitors could have added a second on the half-hour mark as Laquait was called into action to deny Thiago Silva after the Brazilian was picked out at the back post from a Beckham corner.

Carlo Ancelotti's side were lackadaisical in possession despite dominating the ball, and were made to pay two minutes before half-time as Khlifa tapped into an empty net at the back post having been picked out by Sagbo.

Evian began the second half brightly and Khlifa was again the focal point for the hosts as he tested Douchez with another effort from distance.

PSG then came close to adding their second moments later as Jallet found Ibrahimovic, only for the Sweden striker to clip the outside of the post from 18 yards.

Some excellent work from Sagbo inside the PSG area freed up Berigaud to fire at Douchez, but Blaise Matuidi recovered brilliantly to deny the Evian striker as the hosts pushed for a second in the dying embers of normal time.

A reserved start to extra time from both sides failed to see any real clear-cut opportunities materialise until Sagbo fired over from 25 yards for the hosts. Substitute Kevin Gameiro then came close as he cut onto his right foot to test Laquit, but the Evian goalkeeper was equal to the striker's effort.

PSG were the dominant of the two sides following the interval in extra time and it took a superb stop from Laquait to deny Matuidi after the midfielder had been picked out by the energetic Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Thiago Motta received a straight red late on in extra time, while Ibrahimovic fired a free kick over with the final kick of the game, and the tie was forced into a penalty shoot-out. Former AC Milan duo Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva both missed from the spot for the visitors as the hosts netted from all four of their own efforts, with Barbosa's winning kick sparking delirium in the stands at Parc des Sports.
