Holders Paris St-Germain needed extra time to beat minnows Villefranche in the Coupe de France last 16.
PSG dominated in normal time but was unable to find a way through Villefranche’s stubborn defense.
But the French third-tier side’s resistance was finally broken when Julian Draxler scored in the 102nd minute.
Moussa Diaby and Edinson Cavani then made the result safe with two goals in six extra-time minutes.
PSG, aiming for a fifth cup title in a row, started without Kylian Mbappe and Cavani and the pair were introduced in the second half as the Ligue 1 leaders searched for a goal.
And it was Cavani’s skill which bamboozled Villefranche’s defense to break the deadlock, as he slid a ball across the box for Draxler to slot home.
Forward Mbappe finished the game with two assists; beating two men to play in Diaby for a tap-in and sliding across to Cavani who made no mistake with a close-range effort.
