PSG beat Lyon via penalties to lift the 2020 Coupe de la Ligue trophy

Share This

PSG have clinched the final domestic quadruple in French football history after beating Lyon on penalties to win the last Coupe de la Ligue trophy.



After a goalless stalemate in normal and extra time, the final had to be decided by a shootout, which saw Lyon's Bertrand Traore miss following 10 perfect penalties, leaving Pablo Sarabia to clinch a shootout win.

Lyon won the League Cup in 2001, but have a dreadful record in the competition since then, losing four other finals in the competition.


Lyon played better in extra time, defender Rafael was shown a red card moments from the end for a clumsy foul on PSG winger Angel Di Maria on the edge of the penalty area.

PSG was missing Kylian Mbappe, who is recovering from ankle ligament damage sustained playing against Saint-Etienne, and now has other injury worries.
Striker Mauro Icardi, right back Layvin Kurzawa and veteran captain Thiago Silva all went off during the game with what appeared to be leg-muscle injuries.


The match kicked shortly after 9pm local time in exhausting heat of around 32 degrees Celsius.



PSG have already lifted the Super Cup, the French Cup and Ligue 1 title this season
