The French giants PSG completes domestic quadruple after beating National Ligue side Les Herbiers in the Coupe de France final. Goals by Lo Celso and Cavani (penalty) led to a 2-0 victory. I think we should give all the credits to Les Herbiers, who really fought for their chances in this match. It’s such a big achievement for a National Ligue team to reach the Coupe de France final and even a bigger achievement to loose only 2-0.
PSG completes domestic quadruple
After a devastating previous season, in which they lost the title to As Monaco, the title is back in Paris. Paris Saint-Germain is by far the strongest team in the Ligue 1 this season. They have a gap of 17 points to the number 2 Olympique Lyonnais, with two matches to go. They reached the 100 goals mark a few weeks ago and lost only one match.
Coupe de la Ligue
The Coupe de la Ligue victory was PSG’s first trophy of 2018. They won this trophy for the fifth consecutive time. The final was an exciting match against AS Monaco, which was won by PSG with 3-0. On the road to the final they beat Strasbourg, Amiens and Rennes.
Throphee des Champions
The annual season opener was the Super Cup match against As Monaco. Monaco played this match as Ligue 1 champions, while PSG reached it after winning the Coupe de France. As Monaco took the lead in this match, but it was PSG who set things right in the second half. Goals by Dani Alves and Adrien Rabiot both scored a goal to turn the score.
Coupe de France
Yesterday’s final was a very special one. It’s clear that PSG is dominating French football at this moment, but the fact that their opponent was a National Ligue side makes it special. The 2-0 score is a good result for both teams. This victory completes the domestic quadruple for Paris Saint-Germain. A great moment of sportsmanship was shown by PSG captain Thiago Silva. He invited Les Herbiers captain to join him when lifting the trophy at the end of the match, this to show his appreciation for Les Herbiers achievement in this cup.
