FT | PSG progress in the Coupe de la Ligue after a decent performance at the Stade de la Licorne. They never really got out of first gear tonight but Emery's men had enough quality to see off Amiens. The sending off in the first half proved crucial in the end but PSG did enough to seal the win. Amiens battled hard and showed they have some potential despite their recent results.

'90+1 | Amiens waste a glorious chance to grab a consolation goal as as Gakpe receives a cross from the right but he drags his shot wide of the target. That should be the final chance in this contest.

'78 | GOAL! | Amiens - PSG 0-2. Rabiot! Rabiot finally connects with a cross and he heads home into the back of the net. There's some confusion as Bouet tries to keep the ball out of the net and he claims he did. However, video technology proves Rabiot's flick crossed the line.

'73 | Chance! Mbappe turns with his back to goal and looks to the edge of the box to see Rabiot, but the midfielder does not look confident as he shoots wide of the target.

'60 | Mbappe thinks he has scored as the net bulges but his effort just bounces wide of the near post. All the credit needs to go to Draxler for his long driving run and pass but Mbappe could not put the icing on the cake with a finish from the edge of the box.

'55 | CROSSBAR! | Mbappe smashes the ball towards goal and Bouet somehow manages to get a strong hand to it and it bounces onto the bar and away from Di Maria, who looked destined to tap home from close range.

'53 | GOAL! | Amiens - PSG 0-1. Neymar (P)! Neymar gets up off the deck to slot the penalty home and give his side the lead in this quarter-final clash. He was originally brought down by Monconduit after the Brazilian produced a beautiful step to confuse him. The former Barcelona man then sent Bouet the wrong way and PSG lead!

'46 | We are back underway in the second half!

HT | The referee brings an end to the first-half and there was plenty of drama after Gurtner was sent off in the 34th minute after his challenge on Mbappe. PSG have dominated the game and had chances but they just need to up the tempo in the second half.

'43 | Neymar is left unmarked in the area and he tries to flick his header into the bottom corner but he gets his bearings all wrong and the scoreline remains at 0-0. The Brazilian picked up a knock as he tried to score so some more stoppage time is expected as he receives treatment.

'34 | RED CARD! | Amiens are down to 10 men after keeper Gurtner chops down Mbappe on the edge of the box. The striker showed too much pace and he is hurt after the collision.

'26 | Adrien Rabiot manages to latch onto a loose pass in the box and he swings his left foot at the ball but he slices wide of the top left-hand corner.

'14 | PSG have certainly found this tougher than they did against Rennes. The front three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria are not getting as much joy and that is mainly down to Amiens' hard work in defence.
