Mbappe bids farewell to Paris Saint-Germain after winning the French Cup :: Zerozero.pt

In a match marked by Mbappe's official farewell to Paris Saint-Germain, the Parisian club had to do its best to beat Lyon 1-2, but ended up consolidating the double by winning the French Cup.

Paris Saint-Germain, already the French champion, sought to expand its domestic dominance by winning the French Cup, in the match that witnessed the farewell of Kylian Mbappé, the star of the Parisians. But on the other hand, Lyon was the team that “flirted” with relegation at a certain stage of the season, but it turned things around and reached the European positions and this cup final. Vitinha and Nuno Mendes started on one side (Gonzalo Ramos and Danilo were substitutes), while Anthony Lopez sat on the bench on the other.

As expected, Paris Saint-Germain came out bossy and wanted to score early, executing a huge attacking flow, boosted by the incredible speed of their attacking trio (Barcola, Mbappé and Dembélé) and the caliber of Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz in midfield. The opening goal came naturally for the Parisians, after the 23rd minute, as Dembélé responded in the best way to a cross from Nuno Mendes on the left side.

Paris Saint-Germain did not stop there, and after only 11 minutes they were able to expand, again through a cross, after some confusion in the area, but this time through Fabian Ruiz, who hit the post, but successfully finished off the second goal.

Lyon continued to show signs of life in the second half, and started well and was able to reduce the gap in the 55th minute, through Irish centre-back Jake O'Brien, after a corner kick he executed from the right side. This gave new life to the game and Lyon and their fans believed in something more, but the truth was that PSG were always more dangerous and 1-3 was closer than 2-2. Mbappé's farewell goal was missing, but the Parisians won and won the French Cup.
