Coupe de la Ligue: Berbatov fires Monaco through, Lille win

Dimitar Berbatov heads home from close range.

PARIS, France -- Veteran forward Dimitar Berbatov and substitute Anthony Martial scored in each half as Monaco beat 10-man Guingamp 2-0 to reach the League Cup semifinals on Wednesday.

Monaco won the League Cup in 2003 and -- aside from the second division title two seasons ago -- have not won a trophy since.

In the semifinals, coach Leonardo Jardim's Monaco face Paris Saint-Germain, Bastia or Lille -- who easily beat Nantes 2-0 at home in Wednesday's other quarterfinal.

Blanc taking big risk by excluding Lavezzi and Cavani for cup clash

The ESPN FC team discuss the rumours that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in swapping Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti for Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has decided he can do without Ezequiel Lavezzi and Edinson Cavani in Tuesday's Coupe de la Ligue quarterfinal away at AS Saint-Etienne. Le President has extended the South American pair's exile from the squad by one extra game, having already punished them for their winter break antics by excluding them for the Montpellier HSC Coupe de France victory and the shocking 4-2 weekend defeat away at SC Bastia in Ligue 1.

While the continued absence of Lavezzi...
