LYON, France (AP) - Lyon beat second-division Troyes 2-1 in the French League Cup semifinals on Wednesday to line up Paris Saint-Germain.

Lyon reached the final for the fifth time, but it has won the competition only once, in 2001.

Forward Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring in the 16th minute by firing into the bottom corner before striker Bafetimbi Gomis doubled the lead with a tap-in in the 27th.

Troyes capitalized on some poor marking to pull one back in the 35th with a close-range effort from Brazilian midfielder Xavier Thiago.

Lyon, sixth in the league, was without playmakers Yoann Gourcuff, carrying a groin injury, and Clement Grenier, who was suspended.
