Rennes beat ASM Belfort on Tuesday night to reach the last four and the 2019 finalists are on course to meet once again. 

The Ligue 1 champions were gifted a perfect start to the cup tie when Dijon defender Lautoa got his positioning all wrong for a left-sided cross from Mitchel Bakker. 

Bakker, a 19-year-old Dutch full-back, fizzed in a cross from wide on the left and Lautoa could only divert it into the bottom left corner 49 seconds into the game to put PSG 1-0 up. 

And while Dijon are struggling domestically, sat 17th in Ligue 1 and 36 points behind leaders PSG, they began with a confidence befitting of a superior side and soon took the game to their A-list visitors.
