Commentary

That is all from this Coupe de France last-16 tie, until next time!
PSG march on to the quarter-finals as Lille crash out at the last-16 stage for the third time in three seasons. Pochettino's men next travel to Lyon as they continue to chase Galtier's league-leaders, while Lille face Nimes at home next. These two sides once again meet the week after as the pair battle it out for the Ligue 1 title.
Lille's unbeaten away run that had lasted since November comes to an end at the hands of Pochettino's side, who run out 3-0 winners in this Coupe de France last-16 tie. First-half goals from Icardi and Mbappe, who scored from the penalty spot, put the hosts 2-0 up at half-time. Yazici then saw his second-half penalty saved by Navas before Mbappe sealed the cup tie with a cool, right-footed chip over Maignan in injury time to finish the game off.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 3-0 LILLE
K. Mbappé
Goal
90' + 3' GOOAALLLLL!! 3-0 PSG! If this tie wasn’t already over it is now. Mbappe races over the halfway line and Djalo can’t keep up with him. The Frenchman reaches the area, chipping over the incoming Maignan with his right foot and the ball bounces into the empty net.
90' + 2' GREAT SAVE! Di Maria brings down a long pass, drilling out to Mbappe, who takes an age before cutting in and sensibly playing backwards. Di Maria then finds the overlapping run of Florenzi, who makes it into the area before seeing his driven right-footed effort get pushed away by Maignan diving to his left.
90' + 1' There will be four minutes of added time as Galtier's men remain in search of a late goal.
90' David has the chance to run at Marquinhos but the Canadian's first touch is poor and races out of play for a goal-kick. Navas ushers his team-mates up the pitch, launching the ball long as PSG close in on the Coupe de France quarter-finals.
89' PSG counter-attack from the wasteful resulting corner and Mbappe finds himself on the byline. The Frenchman thinks he has won a corner for his side but the referee sees it differently, awarding Lille the goal-kick, much to the frustration of Pochettino and Mbappe.
88' CLOSE! Navas scurries across to his left as Andre unleashes a right-footed effort which gets deflected by Diallo towards the top right corner. Unfortunately for the visitors, the midfielder's striker falls just the wrong side of the right-hand post and goes out for a corner.
87' Some intricate passing around the home side's area nearly sees both Ikone and David get chances but the ball just won't fall for the substitutes. Verratti then crashes into a tackle in the left-hand channel to break up play and offer Pochettino's side a breather.
86' Bradaric has acres of space to cross but fails to find a team-mate inside the area, instead finding the feet of Marquinhos. Draxler and Mbappe then have a chance to counter-attack but the German's lazy throughball gets intercepted by Botman before the Frenchman can trouble Maignan.
84' Verratti has a few choice words for Yazici, who missed the penalty moments ago, after being fouled inside the hosts' half. PSG then waste the free-kick, gifting the ball back to Lille and Galtier's men will look to attack again.
82' PSG have progressed past the Coupe de France last-16 stage every time since the 2013-14 campaign. It looks like Pochettino's men are set to advance once more.
J. Ikoné
Yellow Card
80' Ikone gets cautioned for his involvement in the altercation with Danilo after the referee hadn't awarded a second penalty to Lille.
80' David feels Lille should have another penalty for handball against Danilo but the referee shakes his head. There is then some commotion between Ikone and a few of the PSG players and it looks like the officials are going to get involved.
J. Draxler
M. Kean
79' Pochettino sends on Draxler for Kean as this game approaches its finale.
K. Navas
Penalty Save
78' Navas keeps the hosts' two-goal advantage intact as he dives low to his left and pushes away Yazici's penalty strike.
Y. Yazıcı
Penalty Miss
78' PENALTY SAVED! Yazici whips his left-footed penalty towards the bottom right corner and Navas guesses the right way, parrying the effort away before the rebound goes over the bar.
K. Mbappé
Yellow Card
78' Mbappe gets booked for dissent after protesting about the penalty decision against Kurzawa.
77' PENALTY TO LILLE! Pied manages to recover a deep cross, reaching the byline on the right before poking a cross back towards the near post. Kurzawa is the nearest man to the right-back and he manages to block the ball with his hand. The referee hesitates for a moment before awarding a penalty to the visitors!
76' The away side intercept high up the pitch and cross towards David, who heads down for Ikone but the substitute scuffs his shot and it trickles well wide of the target.
J. Pied
Z. Çelik
74' Perhaps aware of the trouble Mbappe has caused on the left-hand side, Galtier sends on Pied to replace Celik.
J. Ikoné
Luiz Araujo
73' Lille continue to chase the game as they send on Ikone to partner David up top. The substitute forward replaces midfielder Araujo.
72' Di Maria whips towards the near post but the visitors stand firm to head clear. David then leads the press but Navas clears long before the Canadian substitute can get near to him.
71' PSG surround the referee after Celik flies into a late tackle on Verratti. The referee doesn't see the need to get another yellow card out but the hosts do have a free-kick in a good position in the left-hand channel.
Danilo Pereira
I. Gueye
69' Danilo comes on for the final 20 minutes and replaces Gueye, who was cautioned for his foul on Soumare in this half.
M. Verratti
Rafinha
69' Pochettino makes a double change, first introducing Verratti for Rafinha.
69' CHANCE! Yazici and Araujo combine to win the ball back in midfield, with the latter poking through for the run of Bamba. The substitute makes it into the area before whipping a right-footed effort towards the bottom right corner but Navas once again pushes away another save.
68' David has four of the hosts around him tracking his run and unsurprisingly Rafinha manages to dispossess him. Mbappe then goes down holding his ankle after a strong tackle by Celik and it looks like Pochettino could be preparing for another substitute on the touchline.
67' Les Dogues have been knocked out at this stage of the tournament in the past two seasons. Will they fail to make it past the Coupe de France last-16 stage for a third time in three seasons?
65' Botman is the intended target at the far post from the free-kick but Diallo does well to shelter the ball out of play before the centre-back can redirect the cross back across goal. Gueye then goes down rather softly in midfield but does enough to convince the referee that Yazici has fouled him.
I. Gueye
Yellow Card
64' Soumare drives inside, past the tackle of Paredes and into the tackle of Gueye, who clips the midfielder's ankles and rightfully becomes the next name in the referee's book.
63' SAVE! Di Maria's corner finds the hands of Maignan, who quickly throws out to launch a counter-attack. The visitors break through David in the left-hand channel and the ball eventually finds Soumare, who from 25 yards out unleashes a left-footed effort towards the bottom right corner. Navas sees it all the way, however, diving down to his left and parrying away from danger.
J. Bamba
T. Weah
62' At the same time as Andre's introduction, Bamba replaces Weah, who had struggled to make an impact on this cup tie.
B. André
Xeka
62' Xeka, who was booked in the first half, comes off for Andre in midfield.
61' Mbappe attempts to offer the hosts some form of respite as he goes wandering into the left-hand corner but even the Frenchman can't keep possession. Araujo then looks to be in space on the right-hand side but Bradaric's pass over the top gets cut out by Kurzawa.
59' PSG are employing an incredibly high line to negate the pace of Weah and David. On this occasion, Soumare plays a throughball for Weah and the American looks set to be in on goal, only for Navas to come rushing out, collecting the ball before launching long into the right-hand channel.
58' Celik sarcastically applauds Kurzawa after the pair battle in the right-hand corner and the hosts' left-back buys a cheap free-kick. Navas pumps the resulting free-kick long but Kean fails to hold the ball up as the visitors continue to dominate, winning every loose ball and looking to get back into this game.
57' Xeka twists and turns after being found by Araujo in the area but he can only whip a left-footed cross out of play. Lille have started this half strongly, however, as of yet they have nothing to show for their hard work in this Coupe de France tie.
55' Kurzawa sprints round Mbappe on the overlap, eventually being rolled in down the left-hand channel and crossing towards Kean at the near post. Botman, however, is alert to the danger as he intervenes before the Italian forward can trouble Maignan.
54' Bradaric drives down the left-hand channel, reaching the byline before seeing his cross headed behind for a corner by Kurzawa. The resulting set-piece by Yazici finds Weah at the front post but the American's tame effort is saved comfortably by Navas.
53' Pochettino's men have now gone three home games without a win following a draw with Barcelona and defeats against Nantes and Monaco in recent weeks. Barring a Lille comeback here, their bad run at Parc des Princes will be over.
52' Kurzawa is down with a head injury after clashing with both Xeka and Araujo in the air. The referee waves the physios on to treat the left-back before the Frenchman returns to his feet, rushes off to the touchline and returns to the pitch moments later.
51' David leads Lille's counter-attack but the move breaks down as Araujo's low cross doesn't beat Florenzi. Celik then receives possession on the opposite flank but he too doesn't beat the first man and PSG manages to clear.
50' Di Maria whips in the resulting set-piece and Botman manages to climb above Marquinhos to head away before Florenzi wildly volleys a long-range effort over Maignan's goal.
49' David and Yazici press high but they fail to regain possession as Kurzawa and Diallo play around them with relative ease. Di Maria then ghosts inside, crossing towards Mbappe at the back post and Celik just about manages to scuff a clearance out for a corner to the hosts.
47' David's first involvement sees him draw the foul from Marquinhos near the halfway line. The Brazilian centre-back escapes a caution but that passage of play already represents the different challenge David will pose as opposed to Yilmaz up top.
46' Both sets of players have returned from the Parc des Princes tunnel and the referee gets this Coupe de France last-16 clash back underway!
J. David
B. Yılmaz
46' Galtier signals his attacking intentions as he sends on David for Yilmaz at half-time.
A. Florenzi
C. Dagba
46' Dagba comes off for Florenzi at half-time.
Looking ahead to the next 45, if Galtier feels this game is gone he may bring off more of his key players, such as Weah, in order to rest them for their important Ligue 1 fixtures coming up. Pochettino will be delighted with his side's performance so far and will perhaps feel one more goal will finish this cup tie off completely.
The hosts wander down the tunnel 2-0 up at half-time, after dominating the majority of this Coupe de France last-16 tie. Initially, Icardi gave Pochettino's side the lead after pouncing on some miscommunication between Maignan and Djalo. Celik then brought down Mbappe, who converted the subsequent penalty only moments after replacing the injured Icardi. Yilmaz has had the best chances for the visitors, spurning a one-on-one opportunity and hitting the crossbar but Lille are yet to beat Navas so far.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 2-0 LILLE
45' + 1' Yilmaz picks a problem with Pochettino, glaring at the Argentinian manager after the PSG head coach had gone to retrieve the ball for Kurzawa's throw-in. If the game carries on with these sort of tempers, it could make for an interesting and chaotic next 45 minutes.
45' There will be two minutes of added time in this Coupe de France last-16 tie as PSG go surging forward in an attempt to extend their two-goal lead.
Y. Yazıcı
Yellow Card
44' Yellow Card Yusuf Yazıcı
Xeka
Yellow Card
44' Another booking comes for Lille, who are quickly losing any form of discipline they once had. This time it is Xeka who goes into the book for flying into a late tackle on Rafinha near the halfway line. Galtier and his men need the half-time whistle just so they can calm down.
43' Mbappe shoves Celik off the ball and the right-back ends up on the floor clutching his face. The referee awards a free-kick to the visitors before the pair exchange a shake of hands and the game carries on around them.
K. Mbappé
Penalty Goal
41' GOOOOOALLLL!!! 2-0 PSG! Mbappe makes no mistake from the penalty spot, blasting his right-footed strike into the top right corner. Maignan dives the right way but no goalkeeper would be able to stop that effort! The Frenchman wheels away in celebration and Pochettino will be delighted with his immediate influence on this Coupe de France tie.
Tiago Djaló
Yellow Card
40' Djalo becomes the third booking as he gets cautioned for his excessive protests after the penalty decision.
40' PENALTY TO PSG! An instant impact by Mbappe as the Frenchman cuts inside onto his right foot, inviting the tackle of Celik before going down and the referee doesn't hesitate as he points to the spot! The right-back didn't have to lunge in there and he left the referee with no choice but to give the foul.
K. Mbappé
M. Icardi
38' After playing with 10 men for five or so minutes, Mbappe finally comes on to replace the injured Icardi. The Frenchman's introduction will not have been what Pochettino wanted but he had no choice as Icardi limped off earlier.
37' Yilmaz attempts to slide through Weah, who takes one touch around Marquinhos before Navas collects the loose ball. Lille appeal for handball against the Brazilian centre-back but the referee once again shakes his head and insists play goes on. Just like the earlier decision with Djalo, it would have been incredibly harsh to give that one against the centre-back too.
36' Paredes clips the ankles of Soumare to offer Lille a free-kick in the left-hand channel. PSG are still playing with 10 men after Icardi's removal and Galtier's men are looking to capitalise on their one-man advantage.
34' Navas chips a 50-yard pass perfectly into the chest of Rafinha before Di Maria tries to find Icardi through the middle. Icardi then goes down, perhaps still struggling from Araujo's tackle, and it looks like it could be the end of the forward's game.
33' Galtier's side commit six or seven players forward as Yilmaz and Yazici look to carve out an opportunity. However, Rafinha steps in, releasing Di Maria on the counter-attack to shoot with his left foot, which Maignan saves with ease. Down the other end, Weah thinks he is in but once again the assistant has their flag up for offside against the American.
32' The hosts have dominated the Coupe de France recently, winning five out of the last six editions.
31' OFF THE BAR! Dagba cuts out a pass to Bradaric and Soumare pokes through to Yilmaz on the edge of the area. The Turkish forward takes one touch, spinning onto his left foot before curling an effort towards the top right corner. Navas can gets nowhere near it and he is fortunate that Yilmaz's effort smashes into the crossbar and then bounces away from danger.
30' CLOSE! Rafinha can't sort his feet out quickly enough, which allows Soumare to intervene on the edge of Lille's area. The ball then finds Paredes, who takes one touch before unleashing a long-range volley, which nearly troubles Maignan but the goalkeeper manages to parry away.
29' Another free-kick comes on the right-hand side, which offers Di Maria the chance to cross. The Argentine delivers to the front post but Weah is there to head down before PSG send the next pass out of play for a goal-kick, which Maignan will play short.
28' Araujo smashes into the ankles of Icardi and he is perhaps lucky to not become the third booking of the game, which is quickly degenerating into a series of needless fouls by the away side as they struggle to get a grip of this Coupe de France last-16 tie.
27' Galtier gets rather animated on the touchline as he protests the ball has gone out of play under the control of Kurzawa. The Lille manager gets his way with the assistant but his side then fail to keep the ball, as has been the case for the majority of this first half so far.
26' Kean and his team-mates are still arguing with the referee about the potential handball decision as the hosts manipulate possession from side to side. Replays show it could have clipped Djalo's arm but that would have been an extremely harsh decision, given how close the centre-back was to the Italian attacker.
24' Kean evades two or three Lille defenders, making it into the area and seeing his right-footed effort blocked by Djalo. The home side appeal for a penalty for handball but the referee waves his arms, suggesting it has come off the chest of the centre-back before rolling through to Maignan.
23' Out of possession, the hosts appear to be more 4-4-2 with Di Maria and Kean tucking in while Rafinha joins Icardi to press up top. Pochettino's press nearly fails, however, as Weah is sent in over the top but the offside flag goes up against the American youngster before he can progress any further.
21' WIDE! Di Maria feeds the overlapping run of Dagba, who sees his cross towards the near post headed away by Djalo. Di Maria latches onto the loose ball towards the edge of the area, cannoning a left-footed volley towards Maignan's right but the Argentine's effort goes just wide of the target.
20' Di Maria floats the set-piece towards the far post, where Marquinhos heads down for the run of Rafinha. The visitors manage to deal with the initial danger and then launch long for Yilmaz to chase as they try and make it out of their own half for the first time in a few minutes.
D. Bradarić
Yellow Card
18' Bradaric is the first Lille name in the book as he crashes into the back of Di Maria, hacking at the Argentine's ankles and giving away a free-kick in the right-hand channel.
17' Pochettino is furious as he feels Celik should be booked for a cynical foul on Di Maria, who was leading the hosts' counter-attacking charge. After the referee briefly goes over to the touchline to explain his decision, play resumes with a PSG free-kick.
16' Celik and Yazici exchange a one-two with the latter playing back to his right-back with a smart flick, which forces Kurzawa to slide in and concede Lille's first corner of the game. The resulting set-piece comes to nothing as the away side fail to beat the first man at the near post.
15' Di Maria coasts past Soumare in the right-hand channel, racing towards goal and attempting to find his international compatriot Icardi in the area. Fortunately for the visitors, Di Maria overhits his throughball and it travels through to the hands of Maignan.
14' OVER THE BAR! Marquinhos deals with a long pass which was in search of Yilmaz, heading down towards the edge of his own area. Weah nips in front of Kurzawa, collecting the loose ball before powering a right-footed effort towards goal. Navas doesn't appear too concerned as he jumps and watches the American's strike sail over the crossbar.
13' A poor back pass by Kurzawa nearly releases Yilmaz through on goal, however, Navas dances around the initial pressure before evading the press of Yazici and coolly playing out towards Diallo.
12' Rafinha throws himself to the floor in the middle of the park and then Araujo exchanges a few words with the referee. After some more disagreement and arguing with the officials, the hosts get the game back underway with a short free-kick towards the left-hand side.
11' Lille's most recent triumph in Coupe de France came in the 2010-11 season - when they beat today’s opponent 1-0 in the final - and they held the champions to a 0-0 draw back in December, but Les Parisiens have lost just one of their last 20 matches against their last-16 opponents in all competitions.
M. Icardi
Goal
9' GOALLLLLL! 1-O PSG! Di Maria latches onto a long ball in the right-hand channel, cutting in and crossing towards the front post. Djalo and Maignan fail to communicate, meaning the goalkeeper parries into Icardi, who taps-in to an empty net from inside the six-yard area. While the Argentine's cross was a bouncing ball from out wide, Maignan and Djalo have to be doing better to deal with the initial delivery there.
8' Yazici and Yilmaz once again combine but on this occasion the former's pass is a little too strong and the home side manage to intercept towards the right of their own area. Yazici and Weah are controlling the visitors' attacking phases in the opening stages of this game.
6' SAVE! Intricate passing from Yazici, Yilmaz and Araujo sees Lille's number nine find some space to the left of goal. With just Navas to beat, Yilmaz slides his right-footed shot into the chest of the goalkeeper before Bradaric smashes a rebound into the hands of the Costa Rican once more. The Turkish forward should be scoring from that sort of chance and that is a let off for the hosts.
5' Soumare remains down after Rafinha's lunging tackle and the midfielder will require some medical treatment from the visitors' physios. He is clutching his ankle but it seems like he will be fine to carry on as he hobbles off to the touchline before returning moments later.
Rafinha
Yellow Card
3' An early booking comes for Rafinha as he slides in late and over the top of the ball on Soumare in the middle of the park. That is not an ideal start for the Brazilian, who will now have to tread carefully for the next 87 minutes.
3' Di Maria's outswinging corner misses Marquinhos and Diallo, eventually falling to Rafinha on the edge of the area who blazes his right-footed effort high and wide of Maignan's goal.
2' Rafinha skips around two tackles before feeding Kurzawa in the left-hand channel and the left-back's low cross gets turned behind for the first corner of the game.
1' The referee blows his whistle to get this Coupe de France last-16 clash underway!
The players are wandering out the Parc des Princes tunnel and shortly it will be time for kick-off.
Lille travel to the Parc des Princes having kept six clean sheets in their last eight domestic away matches and they have not lost on the road since November.
Christophe Galtier, who was absent from the touchline against Monaco due to suspension, opts for seven changes from the weekend. Botman, Celik, Maignan and Weah are the only four to remain in the side as the visitors rotate their starting eleven, unsurprisingly placing greater emphasis on the league. Veteran forward Yilmaz partners Yazici, after making his long-awaited return to action off the bench against Monaco last game.
Mauricio Pochettino makes five changes from the hosts’ loss against Nantes. Diallo moves centrally to partner Marquinhos, meaning Kurzawa is the man to come in for Presnel Kimpembe. Gueye and Paredes also replace Danilo and Verratti as holding midfielders behind Rafinha. Up top, Kean starts instead of Draxler and Icardi gets the nod ahead of Mbappe.
SUBS: Jose Fonte, Jonathan David, Jonathan Ikone, Orestis Karnezis, Benjamin Andre, Jeremy Pied, Jonathan Bamba, Reinildo, Isaac Lihadji.
LILLE (4-4-2): Mike Maignan; Mehmet Zeki Celik, Sven Botman, Tiago Djalo, Domagoj Bradaric; Boubakary Soumare, Xeka; Timothy Weah, Luiz Araujo; Yusuf Yazici, Burak Yilmaz.
SUBS: Ander Herrera, Alessandro Florenzi, Danilo Pereira, Marco Verratti, Kylian Mbappe, Sergio Rico, Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer, Mitchel Bakker.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Colin Dagba, Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo, Layvin Kurzawa; Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes, Rafinha; Angel Di Maria, Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi.
This Coupe de France tie sees Ligue 1 leaders Lille travel to second-placed Paris Saint-Germain. It is expected the visitors are set to rotate their squad as they focus on their top-flight title charge. Lille overcame Ajaccio to make it to this stage, while the Parisians dispatched of Brest.
