Di Maria opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime when he drilled in a stinging low shot from 20m which took a slight deflection off Marseille defender Adil Rami, prompting Mandanda to kick his post in frustration. Di Maria added the second in the 48th minute with a composed finish after left back Yuri Berchiche's teasing cross sailed past two defenders. Mandanda, who had saved a Di Maria piledriver in the first half, somehow kept out Edinson Cavani's header and Julian Draxler shot inches wide with a spectacular overhead kick before Cavani sealed the rout in the 82nd minute. A dazzling move through the middle left Cavani with time to crash a thumping low shot past Mandanda as the home fans celebrated at the Parc des Princes. Caen host fellow first division side Olympique Lyonnais in the other quarter-final Thursday.
