Marseille knock PSG out of French Cup

Olympique de Marseille knocked Paris St-Germain (PSG) , the record 14-time winners, out of the French Cup.

Former Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez shot the hosts into the lead in the 31st minute from a penalty spot after Sergio Ramos’ foul on Cengiz Under.

Ramos equalised but Marseille won it through a goal by Ukraine midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi.

PSG included Lionel Messi and Neymar but were unable to find another equaliser in the last-16 tie.

Marseille, who are second in Ligue 1 behind PSG, last won the French Cup in 1988-89.

The two sides meet again on 26 February in the league in Marseille, who trail the leaders by eight points.
