Mbappe struck twice and Sarabia scored for the second game in a row as holders PSG stayed on course for a sixth domestic Cup triumph in seven years

Paris Saint Germain geared up for their Champions League last-16 second leg against Barcelona with a no-nonsense 3-0 victory at Stade Brestois in the French Cup last 32 Saturday.

Kylian Mbappe struck twice and Pablo Sarabia scored for the second game in a row as holders PSG, who host Barcelona Tuesday after winning the first leg 4-1, stayed on course for a sixth domestic Cup triumph in seven years.

Mbappe put the visitors ahead on nine minutes with a fierce strike into the top corner at the end of a counter-attack.

Sarabia doubled the advantage just before the interval by latching onto Julian Draxler's cross after another rapid break.

Neymar scored on his return from injury as Paris Saint Germain beat Olympique de Marseille 2-1 to win the French Super Cup in Lens Wednesday.

Mbappe then chested the ball into the net from Marco Verratti's cross to put the result beyond doubt in the 74th minute.

Verratti, returning from injury, played 75 minutes and Angel di Maria came in as a second-half substitute after missing five games due to a thigh problem.

Elsewhere, RC Lens, who are fifth in Ligue 1, slumped to a 3-2 defeat at third division Red Star.

Olympique Lyonnais advanced by beating Ligue 2 side Sochaux 5-2.
