French Cup: Niort 0-2 PSG - Holders advance in muddy conditions


Paris Saint-Germain left it late to record a 2-0 win at Niort in awful conditions during Wednesday's French Cup round of 16 clash.Heavy rain turned Stade Rene Gaillard into a muddy, potholed ground and made it doubly difficult for PSG to turn their dominance into goals as Niort simply packed their penalty box with bodies.Javier Pastore and Edinson Cavani eventually got the goals but there was a hilarious moment late in the match when Lucas tried to pass the ball into an empty net - only for it to get stuck in the mud a mere inches from the goal-line.
