Marquinhos rounded off the scoring with a late rebound after a deflection.

PSG will now go on to play Angers in the final at the Stade de France on 27 May.

Angers, 14th in Ligue 1, reached their first French cup final in 60 years with a 2-0 victory over Guingamp on Tuesday.

PSG, who won the domestic treble twice in a row under previous boss Laurent Blanc, beat Monaco to win the French League Cup final 4-1 earlier in April.
