PSG are historic!
For the first time in French Football history, a team has won all four trophies in a season. They beat Auxerre 1-0 in the French Cup-final.
– Fantastic. This is why I play football, Zlatan said after the game.
In August they won the French Supercup, in April Zlatan fixed the League-cup with two goals in the final, 16 May they secured the Ligue 1-trophy and tonight they won the French Cup-final and became the first team ever in France to win all four trophies.
GOALKEEPER LÉON MAN OF THE MATCH
PSG played well in this final, very much like we are used to. Controlling the ball and slowly grinding down their opponent. And this would definitely have been a clearer victory if it hadn't have been for Léon in the Auxerre-goal. Several great saves in both halves (two on Zlatan-attempts) made the score 0-0 up until the 65th minute.
Then he couldn't stop PSG anymore. A Van der Wiel-cross from the right curled in to Cavani in the box who powerfully headed the ball on goal. Léon was on it but it was too hard and PSG took the lead, 1-0. Auxerre then had a few half-chances for the equalizer but never succeeded. PSG won 1-0 and secured the fourth trophy of the season.
After being out injured for several weeks, the status of Zlatan's fitness and gametempo was a bit insecure before the game. He looked ok. At times the lack of matches lately shun through but mostly he played well and the longer the game went he was more and more involved in PSG's game. He had 51 successful passes, which is a very high number. 2 attempts on goal stopped by great saves from Léon. An ok final considering the injury and most importantly he stood there as a winner and received the 4th trophy of the season and the 26th trophy of his career.
65' - 0-1. Edinson Cavani, PSG.
