PARIS (AP) - Paris Saint-Germain won 3-1 at Saint-Etienne in the French Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday to remain on course to defend its domestic treble.

PSG lost 2-1 away to Lyon on Sunday night for its first domestic loss since March last year - a run of 46 games - but Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani settled nerves when he scored from Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 12th-minute pass.

Brazilian defender Marquinhos pounced at the back post in the 35th and, after Saint-Etienne midfielder Valentin Eysseric pulled a goal back from the penalty spot, Brazilian winger Lucas grabbed PSG’s third goal in injury time.

PSG is drawn away to Lorient in the semifinals.

Lorient beat Gazelec Ajaccio 3-0 while second-division Sochaux defeated Nantes 3-2 after extra time and next meets Marseille or non-league Granville, who play Thursday.
