Shots Off Target
Shots On Target
That's all from us this evening! Thanks for joining us throughout this clash between PSG and Monaco.
Full-time! PSG walk into the final of the Coupe de France, but it was clear Monaco didn't care about the fixture as they prioritise the league and Champions League.
Matuidi gets the credit for the assist but in truth the ball just cannoned of his leg.
GOAL! PSG get a lucky break as Maxwell fires a shot on goal through a body of players and the ball fell kindly to Marquinhos to tap home a fifth for the hosts.
PSG are just looking to see out the match now. The home side aren't pushing as many players forward in the attack as they look to retain the clean sheet.
Monaco have fought valiantly in this match considering they headed into this match as extreme outsiders, but PSG's class has shown as they've walked to victory.
Diallo was booked for his foul on Lucas.
A free-kick in a dangerous position for PSG as Diallo committed a foul on Lucas on the edge of the box. The Brazilian winger took the duties, but his effort was just wide of the mark.
CLOSE! A short corner was drilled into Maxwell just inside the box and this time the full-back opted to shoot, but his effort was always rising and ended up in the stand behind the goal.
PSG players seem scared to shoot! Maxwell has a open opportunity in the box but chose to attempt a clip to Lucas but Muyumba got back to head over the crossbar for a corner.
SAVE! Once again Areola shows he's awake to danger as Cardona was threaded in behind the PSG defence but the goalkeeper rushed out to narrow down the angle.
CHANCE! A lovely scooped pass from Veratti gave Lucas his first opportunity of the match, but the winger cut inside and made life difficult for himself as De Sanctis saved with ease.
SAVE! With little to do all afternoon Areola proves his still awake to danger as a long strike from Bongiovanni was well saved by the PSG shot-stopper.
The goalmouth action has slowed down a bit now as PSG use their subs just to slow down the play a tad as they attempt to completely dictate the match and keep their clean sheet.
Goncalo comes on for Cavani.
Maxwell is doing brilliantly in this match getting up the left flank and proving to be a thorn in the Monaco defence. Once again the full-back drilled a cross into the box but this time De Sanctis pounced on the play.
CHANCE! A good opportunity for PSG as Cavani finds space in the channel but Veratti's pass was weighted incorrectly and the striker couldn't get on the end of the play.
Rabiot comes on for Motta as PSG look to recycle possession better.
PSG are trying to overcomplicate things for themselves now. The home side are attempting to walk the ball into the net rather than pulling the trigger.
CHANCE! Draxler goes for the selfless option when in front of goal by attempting to square to Matuidi but Diallo hacked the play away - the German should have shot!
Monaco's team just become more inexperienced following the subs of Germain and Raggi. Jardim has no fear in putting faith in his younger players.
Bongiovanni also enters the pitch for Germain.
Dabila comrd on for Raggi.
The pressue is still be applied by PSG as Monaco fail to get out of their half. It's a case of clearing the ball and reseting their shape before the next wave of attack for the visitors.
SAVE! A low cross from Draxler from a set-piece was met by Cavani at the near post but De Sanctis done well to get down to the effort and push the ball away.
Á. Di María
First sub of the match as Lucas comes on for Di Maria.
The only question remaining in this fixture is how many goals will PSG score? The home side are taking Monaco to the slaughterhouse and are showing no mercy.
Á. Di María
Di Maria gets the assist as the winger selflessly squares to his teammate in the middle of the box.
GOAL! Four for PSG and this is a riot. The ball was squared to Matuidi for the midfielder to stab home from three yards out.
GOAL! Number three for PSG and it's an own goal. A whipped cross from Maxwell is turned into the Monaco net by Mbae as he tried to stop Maquinhos doing just that.
A long ball forward from Thaigo Silva found Matuidi behind the Monaco defence, but the Frenchman was unable to get a good cross into the middle to find Cavani who was unmarked at the back post.
CLOSE! PSG come close to number three as a drilled cross from Maxwell runs through both Draxler and Cavani as neither player was able to get a touch on it.
PSG get the second half underway!
Half-time at the Parc des Princes and PSG are cruising as they lead 2-0 and could've had at least two more.
Veratti is the next PSG player to try his luck as the midfielder fired towards goal from 20 yards out, but the effort went over the crossbar.
POST! Matuidi almost replecated Cavani's finish from earlier as a ball in from Di Maria was turned against the post by the midfielder and was then deflected wide for a corner.
So close to 3-0! PSG aren't easing up on their counterparts here as Cavani rounded De Sanctis but the angle was just too narrow for the striker to turn the ball home.
A clever backheel from Di Maria almost finds Veratti on the edge of Monaco's box in plenty of room, but unfortunately for the Parisians the pass was just out of reach for the Italian midfielder.
Yet another corner for PSG as Cavani wins one off Raggi, but the short corner was headed wide of De Sanctis' goal by Thiago Motta.
STAT: PSG haven't lost at home in the league since the 20th of March 2016 and that loss came against Monaco.
PSG are cruising now and it's looking like the home side are going to score as many as they want this evening. The Parisians are cutting through Monaco like a hot knife through butter.
GOAL! Cavani celebrates his new contract with his 45th of the season. A wonderful back heel from the Uruguay international left De Sanctis with no chance.
Á. Di María
Assist Ángel Fabián di María Hernández
Monaco are seeing a bit more of the ball now since the goal, but PSG are still reducing the visitors to long passes in an attempt to go forward.
The character of this young Monaco side will be truly tested now as PSG have the confidence in them and will look to hammer the opposition as the evening goes on.
GOAL! A horror error from De Sanctis as the goalkeeper drops the ball into the path of Cavani who passed to Draxler for the easiest goal he'll score in his career.
Assist Edinson Roberto Cavani Gómez
CLOSE! A poor touch from Di Maria stopped a wonderful PSG move, but Jorge almost put it into his own net as he was tackling the winger.
PSG win back-to-back corners as Thiago Silva's cross is turned behind by Raggi, but once again the set-piece comes to nothing as De Sanctis gathers with ease.
SAVE! Areola with a fantastic save as Cardona whipped a wonderful cross into the box which was turned goal-bound by a surging Diallo, but the PSG goalkeeper done well to push the ball around the post.
A mistake from Veratti at the back gifted Monaco an attack which almost led to an own goal! Thiago Silva had to rush back to stop Germain and almost prodded past Areola in the process.
Monaco just can't get out of their half just yet. Whilst De Sanctis is yet to be truly tested, the away side are struggling to relieve themselves of any pressure.
A fantastic pass from Veratti allowed Meunier to overlap and cross into the box, but Diallo turned the play behind for a corner which was eventually cleared by the Monaco defence.
PSG are exploiting the wings so far. Once again a cross comes into the Monaco box which was met by Cavani but the striker was unable to turn his header on target.
It seems as if Monaco are starting to settle in this match, but it's still PSG controlling the play. The home side seem much more confident when in possession in front of their supporters.
It's all PSG in this match so far. A cross from the left by Maxwell is almost greeted in the middle by Matuidi but Diallo done well to beat the midfielder to the ball and head over the crossbar.
Fantastic challenge! A quick free-kick from Veratti sent Cavani through on goal, but a last-ditch tackle from Mbae stole the ball away from the striker.
CLOSE! The first opportuntiy of the match as Di Maria worked well to get a crossing opportunity to Cavani, but the striker was only able to head into the hands of De Sanctis.
PSG are pressing high to try and unsettle this Monaco side that have barely played with each other and it almost worked as Cavani almost intercepted Raggi on the ball.
Monaco get us underway.
With just one player surviving the starting eleven from Monaco’s previous fixture, Jardim has expressed his priorities of both the Champions League and Ligue 1 over the Coupe de France. Meanwhile, Unai Emery makes four alterations to his XI, largely in defence.
Subs: Subasic, Fabinho, Dirar, Silva, Toure, Bongiovanni, Dabila.
Monaco (4-4-2): De Sanctis; Mbae, Diallo, Raggi, Jorge; Muyumba, N’Doram, Andzouana, Beaulieu; Cardona, Germain.
