Paris Saint-Germain stayed on course to win another local treble as it won 3-1 at Caen on Wednesday to achieve the last of the French Cup. PSG secured its fifth group title in six seasons on Sunday and has effectively won the League Cup. It will confront third-division Les Herbiers on May 8 out of an offer to win its third treble in four seasons.
PSG ruled at Caen and Kylian Mbappe let go home Edinson Cavani’s cross to give it a merited lead in the 25th moment. Ismael Diomande evened out two minutes previously halftime with a redirected exertion and Cavani had an objective precluded for offside soon after the restart.
It took until the point that the 81st moment for PSG to reestablish its lead with Mbappe scoring his second of the match from short proximity after another cross by Cavani. Notwithstanding, it needed to hold up about five minutes previously arbitrator Francois Letexier granted the objective in the wake of looking into video film.
Any expectation Caen had of getting once again into the match vanished in the last moment as Diomande was demonstrated a straight red card for a risky handle on Javier Pastore.
Substitute Christopher Nkunku, who had been on the pitch under two minutes, fixed the outcome in the fifth moment of stoppage-time, following a one-two with Dani Alves.
