PSG wins 6-0 at 6th-tier side Linas-Montlhéry in French Cup
PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain eased into the next round of the French Cup with a 6-0 win at amateur side Linas-Montlhéry on Sunday.
PSG rested a number of star players but progression to the last 32 was never in doubt against a side which plays in the country's sixth tier.
However, it took 30 minutes before Adil Aouchiche broke the deadlock. Linas-Montlhéry almost equalized but PSG goalkeeper Sergio Rico saved Idrissa Kanouté’s penalty.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting added a sixth goal late on.
Linas-Montlhéry is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Paris and the team’s coach Stephane Cabrelli and most of the players are PSG fans. The 52-year-old Cabrelli is a PSG season ticket-holder and has been going to matches since he was a 6-year-old.
