Saint-Étienne crash out of Coup de la Ligue

12/18/2013  Paris, France

Defending champions Saint-Étienne were eliminated from the French league cup on Wednesday after suffering a heart-breaking 2-1 defeat to Paris-Saint Germain at the Parc de Princes.

Les Verts came from 1-0 down to equalize in the 78th minute through Mevlüt Erding and send the match into extra time, only to see Edinson Cavani, who looked to be offside, tap in the eventual winner just one minute before penalty kicks.

Christophe Galtier’s side will now turn their focus to Ligue 1, as a victory over Nantes at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Saturday would vault them into 4th place.
