French Cup stake for Paris Saint-Germain
Most successful club in French Cup history, Paris Saint-Germain is aiming to win the most prestigious national cup in order to assert their domination of French football in recent years. Between 2015 and 2018, the Parisians managed to lift the trophy four times in a raw, only losing out to Stade Rennais in the final on April 27th, 2019, on penalties. In the 2017 edition, the Red and Blue had not conceded a single goal, scoring no fewer than 23 goals in six matches, an average of nearly four goals per game. Following their 5-1 win over Olympique Lyonnais in semi-final, the Parisians won their 13th French Cup after having been victorious in final against AS Saint-Etienne at Stade de France. The only goal was scored by the Brasilian Neymar, with a left foot shot under the cross-bar.
