PSG beat Monaco to win French Cup for the 6th time

Mbappe scored one goal and set up the other as Paris Saint-Germain stayed on course for a domestic double by beating Monaco 2-0 to retain the French Cup.

It is PSG’s second trophy under former Tottenham boss Pochettino, following the Trophee des Champions in January.

Paris St-Germain won the French Cup for the sixth time in seven years by beating Monaco at the Stade de France.

Mbappe scored one goal and set up the other as Paris Saint-Germain stayed on course for a domestic double by beating Monaco 2-0 to retain the French Cup.

Mauro Icardi put Mauricio Pochettino’s side ahead after 19 minutes, slotting in from Kylian Mbappe’s pass after he had pounced on a defensive error.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker showed his amazing pace and trickery as he effortlessly flew past the whole Monaco team.

A Monaco corner fell to Mbappe on his own six-yard box early on but, rather than hoofing the ball clear, Mbappe looked up and set off on a mazy solo run, beating Monaco players before finding a Icardi with a perfect cross-field pass.

Mbappe then sealed victory with a delightful chipped finish nine minutes from the end.

It is PSG’s second trophy under former Tottenham boss Pochettino, following the Trophee des Champions in January.

Defending champions PSG are one point behind leaders Lille going into the final round of Ligue 1 fixtures as they chase a league and cup double.
