Football: Mbappé and PSG beat Lyon to claim a fifteenth Coupe de France

For Kylian Mbappé’s 307th and final match in the colors of PSG, the Parisian club beat Lyon (2-1) and was offered a Coupe de France par excellence.

Beaten twice 4-1 for the opponent of the day, during the Ligue 1 season, Pierre Sage’s players, who won an unexpected place in the Europa League on the gong, were in search of a first trophy since 2012 .
But from the first minutes of the match, Beraldo gave the first thrill on the cage guarded by Lucas Perri (2nd). A few moments later, the Brazilian goalkeeper stood out on his line, stopping a strike from Zaire-Emery (5th).

O’Brien for the goal of hope

The Lyonnais were under pressure from the men of Luis Enrique and Ousmane Dembélé, taking advantage of an error of judgment from Perri, to score a header at the far post (1-0, 22nd).
PSG did not loosen its grip and Fabian Ruiz had just punished the Lyon defense in ambush to double the lead (2-0, 34th).

Not at his ease and clumsy, Kylian Mbappé failed to register his 256th but, in 307 matches in the Parisian jersey, in this first act.
Through a corner, before the hour mark, the Lyonnais would regain hope thanks to the 97 meter mark of their Irish defender Jake O’Brien. The latter catapulted his head into Donnarumma’s net (2-1, 55th).

Ten minutes later, Nicolas Tagliafico was one reflex parade away from the Italy goalkeeper, imitating his teammate in central defense (65th). At the end of the match, the Parisians kept the ball and headed, without trembling, towards a new title, the fifteenth and last for Mbappé at PSG.
