Rennes stun PSG to lift trophy!

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain were defeated 2-2 (6-5 pens) by Rennes in the French Cup final at the Stade de France.

PSG had won the Coupe de France every year since 2014 and appeared to be in the driving seat once again thanks to goals from Dani Alves (13′) and Neymar (14′).

But a Presnel Kimpembe (40′) own goal and Edson André Sitoe’s (66′) header either side of the interval levelled the match at 2-2 and sent the match to extra time.

France star Kylian Mbappe saw red just before the end of extra time for an awful challenge on Damien Da Silva and after 10 successful penalties from the designated takers, Ismaila Sarr put Rennes 6-5 up while Christopher Nkunku skied his shot to hand Rennes the trophy.
