PSG defeat Les Herbiers to win the French cup

Paris St Germain defeat Les Herbiers 2-0 in the final to win a record-extending 12th French Cup title today. PSG hit the woodwork three times in the opening 20 minutes before prevailing with a goal by Giovani Lo Celso and another from the penalty spot by Edinson Cavani.

Les Herbiers is a small town in western France with a population of 16,000, five times less than the capacity of the Stade de France. PSG started  well and went close several times before midfielder Giovani Lo Celso opened the scoring after 26 minutes. PSG then missed a succession of chances, and had a goal from Kylian Mbappe disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee system, before Edinson Cavani slotted in a penalty in the 74th minute.
