PSG 1-2 Montpellier: Montano stuns Blanc's men

Victor Montano helped Montpellier pull off a shock victory against Paris Saint-Germain to eliminate Laurent Blanc's men from the Coupe de France.

Blanc's side had opened its Ligue 1 campaign with a frustrating draw away to the same opponents and saw any hopes of a quadruple of titles go out the window courtesy of a 2-1 home defeat.

The Parisiens dominated the early proceedings, as Lucas Digne had a goal disallowed for offside, while Blaise Matuidi also spurned a golden opportunity.

Montpellier took the lead completely against the run of play, as a goalkeeping blunder from Nicolas Douchez saw Daniel Congre head into an open net in the 20th minute.

Digne squared for a Cavani equalizer 10 minutes later, but the match was decided by Montano's bullet header from a corner in the 69th minute.
