Brandao: Scored a brace in Marseille's 3-1 win over Bourg-Peronnas
Marseille and Paris Saint Germain are both through to the quarter-finals of the French Cup following wins over Bourg-Peronnas and Dijon respectively.
Brazilian striker Brandao bagged a brace to give Marseille a 3-1 win over amateur side Bourg-Peronnas.
Brandao struck in the 28th minute and the second minute of time added on in the first-half to all but seal their spot in the last eight.
His double - taking his total to five goals in the six matches since he returned last month from a loan spell with Brazilian side Gremio - and one from Ghanaian star Jordan Ayew saw the 10-time Cup winners, the last time in 1989, canter to victory.
Bourg-Perronas, who reached the last eight in 1998, did at least reward their thousand or so supporters who had travelled down to watch them as Ousmane Diaby grabbed a consolation goal 12 minutes from time.
Paris Saint Germain gained revenge on Dijon for being knocked out by them in the League Cup with a 1-0 win.
The Ligue 1 leaders remained on course for their first ever domestic double thanks to a 15th minute goal by Brazilian marksman Nene, who profited from a mistake by Dijon goalkeeper Baba Tchagouni.
Tchagouni failed to control a backpass allowing Nene to be rewarded for his persistence as he seized on the ball and shot home into an empty net.
The win was a perfect boost for PSG - who rested several key players - ahead of their crucial league match with second-placed Montpellier this Sunday with the latter trailing them by just a point.
