It was the 26th and final edition of the Coupe de la Ligue, which disappears from the calendar next season.
A victory on penalties. PSG finally won, against Lyon, the final of the Coupe de la Ligue, Friday, July 31, at the Stade de France (0-0, 6-5 tab). The two teams couldn’t decide in the first 90 minutes and therefore went into extra time. But Lyonnais and Parisians were unable to find the fault after 120 minutes, despite some attempts by Neymar in particular. Lyonnais Rafael was excluded at the last minute of extra time.
Winner a week earlier of the Coupe de France, PSG relapsed in pain, a few days before its Champions League quarter-final. The Parisian club was deprived of its star Kylian Mbappé for this match played in overwhelming heat, in front of around 3,500 spectators. His captain Thiago Silva also came out at the end of the game after suffering a small alert in his right thigh. Lyon is now doomed to win the C1 to have the opportunity to play a European Cup in 2020-21. It was the 26th and final edition of the Coupe de la Ligue, which disappears from the calendar next season.
