Neymar reached 20 goals for the season as Paris Saint-Germain booked its place in the Coupe de la Ligue semifinals with a comfortable 2-0 away win over 10-man Amiens.

Unai Emery's men, who are seeking the trophy for a fifth consecutive year, were handed a major boost towards the end of the first half when home goalkeeper Regis Gurtner saw red for a foul on Kylian Mbappe.

Neymar won and converted a penalty shortly after the break to continue his fine start to life in France and put his side on course for victory.

Mbappe and Marquinhos both hit the woodwork, before Adrien Rabiot struck late on to ensure PSG won its sixth straight game across all competitions.

The visitor joins AS Monaco, Rennes and Montpellier in the last four and remain on track for another domestic clean sweep, having thrashed Rennes 6-1 in the Coupe de France last weekend in its defence of that piece of silverware, while it sits nine points clear at the top of Ligue 1 ahead of Sunday's trip to Nantes.

Amiens, meanwhile, have lost six of its last seven games despite putting in a creditable showing with a numerical disadvantage, though an upset never looked likely.
