Commentary

Minute   Description
That's all from us tonight folks. We hope you enjoyed the game!
Two goals from Lucas Moura and a cool finish from Jese sealed a 3-1 victory for PSG over Lille in the Coupe de la Ligue and sees them move into the final eight of the competition. Lille struggled to get into the game and PSG deserved their victory here tonight with a dominant performance over 90 minutes.
FULL-TIME: PSG 3-1 LILLE
90'+2 That's the final whistle!
90' Two minutes of added time will be played here.
89' GOOOOALLLL LILLE! The visitors have scored a consolation goal and it is thanks to a superb header by Marko Baša from a corner that left Trapp with no chance! An excellent finish but surely too late to make a difference here.
87' Lille have a corner late on, can they grab a late consolation goal?
86' The PSG fans are making all the noise here, it has been a terrific atmosphere throughout the game but the home supporters can really sense victory is theirs now.
83' With less than ten minutes to go here at the Parc des Princes it looks like PSG have sealed a 3-0 victory over Lille. They could even add another goal!
80' Third and final Lille substitution here tonight with Yassine Benzia being replaced by Eder, who doesn't receive a great reception from the PSG supporters, as it was his goal for Portugal against France in Euro 2016 that sealed the title for the Portugal.
78' Nkunku takes the free-kick which beats the wall but then hits his own player on the back and Lille clear the ball. A goal for the youngster who cap a very good performance from the midfielder.
77' Younousse Sankhare is shown a yellow card for a blatant foul on Nkunku in a dangerous position on the edge of the box.
76' PSG are still pushing forward and looking for a fourth goal here. Augustin has had plenty of opportunities to score tonight, he will be eager to get on the score sheet for sure.
74' Surely any Lille goal now would just be a consolation. A dominant PSG performance looks to have sealed their place in the quarter-final of the Coupe de la Ligue.
71' Lucas Moura has been superb tonight and he comes off to be replaced by Nanitamo Jonathan Ikone.
69' Matuidi who has just come onto the pitch played the ball straight into the path of Jese, who made no mistakes.
GOOOOALLLL! IT'S 3-0! Jesé has his first PSG goal from open play! It was good play by the former Real Madrid man and he coolly slotted home PSG's third goal of the night into the back of the net, benefiting from a slight deflection.
66' Lille really need to start creating some goal scoring opportunities soon if they're to get back into the game, with only 25 minutes remaining. However as it stands right now, that seems unlikely to happen. PSG are in complete control.
64' Looks like another substitution that has been forced by an injury. This time it is Sunzu who comes off to be replaced by Marko Baša.
63' First PSG substitution of the game with the influential Marco Verratti coming off and is replaced by Blaise Matuidi.
60' It will be a real struggle for Lille to get back into this game now. PSG look comfortable in every department and deserve their two-nil lead here at the Parc des Princes.
57' Nkunku has been very influential in this second period and it was a fine ball across the box to Lucas who simply couldn't miss!
GOOOAAALLLL! It's another goal by Lucas Moura! It was a brilliant pass by Veratti to Nkunku, whose cross from the right flank then found Lucas in time and space at the back post and he slotted the ball home from close range. It's a brace for Lucas and PSG lead 2-0!
55' The movement is very good by PSG at the moment, there are plenty of options with every pass that they make. Lucas and Nkunku are linking up very well, surely another goal is just around the corner.
53' Lille are struggling to keep the ball in the PSG final third and create any chances which would trouble Trapp. It is certainly the hosts who look the more likely to score again.
52' PSG have started the second half just as they ended the first period - attacking! The hosts look dangerous each time they venture forward and are dealing with anything that Lille throw at them defensively.
51' Terrier is shown the second yellow card of the game, the first to a Lille player.
48' OFF THE BAR! NKUNKU with a superb strike from the edge of the box which beats the Lille keeper but he is denied by the frame of the goal! What a goal that would've been.
47' PSG are on track to reach the quarter-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue as it stands here. However with Lille in fine form in the Ligue 1 they aren't home and dry just yet.
46' The second half is underway!
Both teams are back out here at the Parc des Princes. Can PSG extend their lead or will Lille mount a comeback? Stay tuned for all the match action.
PSG lead one-nil at the half-time break after a Lucas penalty late on in the half. However they could've had at least one or two more here, with Augustin having two very good chances to score but was denied on both occasions by good defending.
HALF-TIME: PSG 1-0 LILLE
45'+4 That's the half-time whistle!
45'+1 LILLE CHANCE! Terrier races down the field after beating Jese to the ball, it looked like a high foot on Jese but the referee allowed play to continue. Terrier charged down field and fired a long-range shot at goal which Kevin Trapp had to tip over the crossbar.
45' Two minutes of added time to be played here. PSG are once again on the attack here, they look dangerous and could double their lead just before the break.
43' GOOOOAAAALLLL! Lucas Moura converts from the penalty spot to give the reigning Coupe de la Ligue champions the lead! Maignan dived the right way but the strike was too powerful and directed straight in the bottom corner. 1-0 PSG!
42' Maignan is shown a yellow card for his foul on Augustin which saw a penalty awarded to PSG.
Lille substitution here as the injured de Préville is replaced by Naïm Sliti just before the penalty kick.
41' PENALTY PSG! Lucas pulls off a superb flick to Augustin who taps the ball past the keeper in the box who the brings Augustin down with his arms. The referee points to the spot despite big appeals from the Lille players who argue that there wasn't any contact. Lucas to take the penalty...
39' de Preville is down injured at the moment and it looks like Lille are about to lose their main striker. That's a huge blow to their chances!
38' PSG have had some excellent chances to score in this opening period with many of them falling to Augustin but he has failed to put the ball into the back of the net. The hosts certainly are the better team going forward right now and will hope to open the scoring before the half-time whistle.
36' AUGUSTIN DENIED! Civelli has just stopped Augustin from slotting the ball into the back of an empty net! The ball fell perfectly for the striker after Lucas' effort was blocked by Maignan and it looked to be a simply tap-in for Jean-Kevin but Civelli gets back and pulls off a superb block.
33' Christopher Nkunku fires a shot at goal from around 30 yards out after the Lille defence fail to close him down, however it is straight at Maignan and he palms the ball over the bar.
31' The first yellow card of the game goes to Meunier for two late fouls in a row.
29' WHAT A CHANCE! PSG should be in the lead now! Augustin is played through on goal after a mistake by Stopilla Sunzu, however the striker takes too many touches in the box and it allows the keeper and Renato Civelli to pressure him and the ball goes out for a goal-kick after a sloppy final touch by Augustin.
27' The Lille defenders keep backing off Lucas in the final third which is a dangerous tactic to play and someone who can easily unlock a defence with one simple pass. However so far so good for Lille here in Paris.
26' STAT: PSG beat Lille 1-0 back in October in Ligue 1, thanks to a goal from Edison Cavani who is on the bench tonight for the hosts.
24' Lille win a free-kick just inside their own half for a foul on Palmieri and the Lille player doesn't look very happy with the amount of kicks his teammates are receiving from the PSG players.
21' Lille look very confident here so far. Despite not seeing much of the ball they appear assured on the ball and keep looking forward, in order to put pressure on a PSG defence that has conceded seven goals in their last three matches.
19' PSG have failed to pick up a victory in their previous three games, they suffered a 3-0 defeat against Montpellier, before consecutive 2-2 draws with Ludogorets and Nice.
16' HUGE CHANCE! PSG are really starting to find their stride now! First Jese finds time and space down the left flank before trying to put the ball into the box for Augustin. The forward then comes narrowly close to opening the scoring as Thomas Meunier squares the ball back to Augustin but it is blocked superbly by Maignan and Lille eventually clear the danger.
13' This is better from both teams now. It has taken a little while for both teams to get settled but PSG have just had their first opportunities of the game to score and now Lille are in possession of the ball in the PSG final third.
11' Chances for PSG! Jean-Kevin Augustin first gives the Lille keeper something to deal with as he almost rounds Maignan but the keeper gets something to it and then his defenders clear the ball. Then Lucas forces the Lille shot stopper into pushing the ball over the bar with his long-range effort.
9' Almost a error in judgement by Mike Maignan in the Lille goal! The keeper came rushing out of his goal to clear the long ball over the top but is almost beaten to it by Jese. Luckily for the keeper the ball is too heavy and goes out for a goal kick.
7' There is an excellent atmosphere here inside the Parc des Princes, with the current holders of the Coupe de la Ligue being in fine voice tonight.
5' First Lille attack of the game sees Julian Palmieri whip a dangerous ball across the PSG backline, right between the goalkeeper and defenders - however none of his teammates were on his wavelength and failed to anticipate the cross. Nicholas de Preville could've attacked that ball!
4' It's the hosts that are enjoying the majority of possession here in the early moments of the game, however Lille are pressing high and are restricting PSG to passing within their own half.
2' Despite PSG sitting third in the Ligue 1 table and Lille back in 11th spot, this could be an evenly matched game as Lille enter the game on the back of three consecutive victories and therefore will be full of confidence.
1' We're underway!
The teams are now out on the pitch and kick-off is almost upon us. Stayed tuned for all of the match action here at the Parc de Princes!
PSG are currently third in Ligue 1, four points off Nice and they had to come from two goals down to draw 2-2 with the league leaders on Sunday, with a brace from Edinson Cavani rescuing a point. Whilst Lille sit in 11th position.
