PSG Wins French Cup Against All Mbappe Odds

Posted by

PSG overcame an injury to Kylian Mbappe to beat 10-man Saint-Etienne and win the French Cup in a game for which some fans were allowed into the Stade de France. That was the first game in France after the league was halted in April due to coronavirus outbreak. It was Neymar who opened the scoring in a fiery first half in which Loic Perrin was sent off for a bad foul on Mbappe. Neymar’s goal proved enough to seal a 13th French Cup for PSG as the second half played out with few incidents of note, with both sides showing tiredness on their return to competitive action.

As both colleagues and fans wish him a quick recovery, the prolific France forward left the pitch in tears and later returned to the dugout on crutches. He will be a serious doubt for PSG’s Champions League quarter-final with Atalanta in August.
