Monaco did not resist, PSG with a trophy
Paris Saint-Germain never fails to realize his enormous ambitions in the Champions League, but in France he is merciless to his rivals. Unai Emery’s team defeated Monaco 3-0 in the League Cup final and won the trophy for the fifth consecutive time.
The match was played in Bordeaux, and Parisians did not leave their class for a moment. Even without the injured superstar Neimar, they had no problems, and by the middle of the first half they led with 2: 0 after the goals of Essonne Cavani and Angel di Maria and at the end of the match Cavani put a point of the dispute. The Uruguayan is now the third most successful footballer in the history of the tournament with 13 hits and PSG is a trophy recorder – 8.
Cavani scored twice and last year’s final against the same opponent, won 4: 1, and today he only needed 8 minutes to take his team forward. He was right in a penalty shoot-out for Kamil Glick’s offense against Kilian Mabape. Initially, Referee Clemen Thurppen pointed to the white point, then canceled his decision, but after consulting the VAR system he still scored a penalty and Cavani did not give Daniel Subashic a chance. Monaco had the strongest time in the match, but in the 21st minute a perfect pass of Mabape found Die Maria, who with a diagonal shot doubled the advance of the PSG. By the break Marcos Lopez could return the intrigue, but he did not hit the door from a clean position. Shortly thereafter, Radamel Falcoo overcame Kevin Trapp, but his goal was canceled out of ambush. And in this situation there was VAR intervention.
The very strong game, Mabape could not score a goal for his former team but contributed to the victory with two assists. After his break in the 85th minute Cavani took possession of the ball in the penalty area and shot Subasic 3: 0. Monaco lost the final for the second consecutive year and historically won the League Cup only once.
