PARIS St-Germain will face French rivals Lyon in the semi-finals of the Women’s Champions League after beating Hacken to reach the final four.

PSG were dominant in the second leg, opening the scoring when Tabitha Chawinga fired into the bottom corner.

United States midfielder Korbin Albert extended their lead when she sent a long-range drive past Jennifer Falk.

Marie-Antoinette Katoto then headed home Sakina Karchaoui’s cross to seal victory.

PSG led 2-1 on aggregate going into the second leg and never looked like letting their lead slide.

It took them until the 70th minute to follow up Chawinga’s opener, but they troubled Hacken throughout with Katoto having an earlier header cleared off the line.

Hacken were unable to make any real impression at Parc des Princes as the Swedish side were forced to sit back without the ball.

PSG were beaten on penalties by Lyon in the 2016-17 Champions League final and are currently seven points behind them in Division 1 Feminine.
