Di Maria shines in PSG win over Marseille

Paris: Argentine winger Angel Di Maria produced a majestic performance capped by two fine goals to help French Cup holders Paris-Saint Germain reach the semifinals with a 3-0 win over Olympique Marseille on Wednesday.

It was PSG's second emphatic victory over Marseille in three days after a 3-0 league win on Sunday.

Di Maria, whose playing time this season has been limited by Neymar's performances, scored both goals with his weaker right foot, rifling in the opener on the stroke of halftime and adding the second in the 48th minute.

Striker Edinson Cavani sealed the rout with a thumping finish eight minutes from time after a dazzling move which underlined the home team's domination, with Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandana sparing the visitors from a heavier defeat.
