Paris headed to Burgundy for this Coupe de France quarter-final fresh from their 4-2 success against Lyon on Sunday. Thomas Tuchel's side were wary of what might be given Dijon were the last side to beat them back in November.

It was a big night for young left-back Mitchel Bakker, who made his debut, and just 50 seconds in he made an impact as his cross was put into his own goal by Wesley Lautoa (0-1, 1').

Pushed on by the home fans, Dijon found a riposte and Mounir Chouiar scored a fine curling effort to level (1-1, 13').

The Parisians took command again soon enough though. Edinson Cavani went close with an acrobatic effort (14') and Thiago Silva had a header saved before El Matador thought he had netted from a Thomas Meunier cross but VAR ruled his effort out (21'). Jhonder Cádiz shot across the face of goal for the home side (41') before Kylian Mbappé put the visitors ahead with a trademark burst and clinical finish (1-2, 43').

Thiago Silva reached a Pablo Sarabia corner to make it three (1-3, 49'). The Spain international then went from make to taker, snapping up the rebound when Alex Runarsson spilled a Kylian Mbappé shot (1-4, 55').

It was another own goal, from Senou Coulibaly, who turned in an Mbappé cross (1-5, 86'), that extended the visitors' lead before Sarabia finished off an Mbappé ball (1-6, 92') to earn himself a competition-high sixth of the season.

Through to the semis in style, the Parisians now travel to Amiens for Saturday's league game before their trip to Dortmund three days later to mark their return to the UEFA Champions League.
