David Luiz and Edinson Cavani scored the goals to give PSG a comfortable 2-0 victory over Monaco in the French Cup quarter-final at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

Despite the comfortable nature of their victory and the fact that they are still alive in four competitions overall this season, Blanc has refused to fuel talk of a domestic treble for the Parisiens.

“We have often said since the start of the season that we would take the Cups very seriously,” Blanc began, as reported by

“I’ll leave you to talk about the treble. For the moment the only thing that is certain is that we are in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue.

“We are not in the final of the Coupe de France, we are a long way from being champions and a long way from qualifying in the Champions League. But we can still do all these things and that is good.”

Paris welcome Racing Club de Lens to the Parc des Princes on Saturday as they look to keep the pressure up on league leaders Olympique Lyon.
