Late goals help PSG reach French League Cup semifinals after 3-1 win at Bordeaux
PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain won 3-1 away to Bordeaux to reach the semifinals of the French League Cup on Tuesday.
PSG lost in a penalty shootout at the quarterfinal stage last season, but took the lead on the stroke of halftime through Argentina playmaker Javier Pastore, who has been largely out of favour so far this season.
In a hard-fought match, midfielder Andre Poko pulled a goal back just after the interval for defending French Cup champion Bordeaux, before 18-year-old midfielder Adrien Rabiot restored PSG's lead in the 85th minute.
Fellow midfielder Blaise Matuidi completed the win for the French league leaders in the 88th.
Former seven-time league champion Lyon hosts Marseille in the pick of Wednesday's quarterfinals.
