PSG Completes Domestic Treble After Defeating Lyon.

PSG completed a domestic treble as they beat Olympique Lyonnais 6-5 on penalties; to lift the French League Cup on Friday with the match ending in a 0-0 stalemate; after regular and extra time. Second-half substitute Pablo Sarabia scored PSG’s final penalty in the shootout; after goalkeeper Keylor Navas had saved Bertrand Traore’s spot kick; to give the Ligue 1 champions and French Cup winners their ninth League Cup trophy.

It was the last roar for the competition, which was founded in 1995; as the French Professional Football League (LFP) decided in September to scrap it as of next season until further notice.

The LFP had failed to secure a broadcaster for the 2020-2024 period; but reserved the right to relaunch the competition in the future.

Lyon keeper Anthony Lopes made a string of good saves in a cagey contest played in front of 5,000 fans; at Stade de France; who were allowed into the stadium in line with coronavirus safety regulations.

Lopes denied Brazilian forward Neymar three times and also kept out shots by Angel Di Maria and Idrissa Gueye; while Navas kept out a Maxwel Cornet free kick at the other end.

A foul on Di Maria resulted a red card for Lyon defender Rafael da Silva; and Neymar blazed the free kick over the bar.

The Brazilian held his nerve to keep PSG alive in the shootout before Navas blocked Traore’s penalty; Sarabia calmly slotted his shot past Lopes to spark wild celebrations among his team mates.

PSG, who beat St Etienne 1-0 in the French Cup final last Friday; will have a chance to complete a quadruple as they face Italian side Atalanta; in the Champions league quarter-finals on Aug. 12 in Lisbon.

Their win over Lyon also means that Stade Reims, who finished sixth in the French League; have snapped up a berth in next season’s Europa League qualifying.
