Paris Saint-Germain Moved into the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France with a routine 2-0 win at Pau.
Neymar was not named in the squad for the trip to the third-tier side, with Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria left on the bench for the visit to the Stade du Hameau.
However, neither was needed because the Ligue 1 leaders comfortably saw off the Championnat National promotion chasers with a goal in each half.
Leandro Paredes opened the marking with only his second goal for the club once twenty-five minutes and Pablo Sarabia made certain of progression eight minutes into the second half.
PSG had not really threatened when Paredes opened the marking in style.
Mauro Icardi set Layvin Kurzawa’s cross into the path of the Argentina midfielder, who controlled brilliantly before lashing a volley beyond Alexis Guendouz.
Kurzawa then jilted an opportunity to double the lead as he lashed across the face of goal, however, Sarabia made no mistake once the restart.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting saw his point-blank effort from Mauro Icardi’s pull back blocked by Damon Bansais and Sarabia was there to convert on the follow-up.
Pau pushed to find to search out a way back to the contest, however, a scarcity of leading-edge within the final third meant an unlikely comeback was never on the cards.
