Monaco 0-2 PSG: Mbappe stars to secure Coupe de France for Pochettino's side

Kylian Mbappé had a goal and an assist as Paris Saint-Germain lifted the Coupe de France thanks to a 2-0 win over AS Monaco.

PSG came into the game without Neymar Jr after the club's appeal against the Brazilian's suspension falling on deaf ears. They almost went behind in the 18th minute when Marquinhos was nearly caught out by Kevin Volland when the recently recalled Germany international chased down his attempted delivery, but Keylor Navas raced off his line to clear the danger but PSG took the lead a minute later.

Mbappé caught Axel Disasi napping on the edge of the Monaco box, stole the ball, and squared for Mauro Icardi, who was left with a simple tap-in. PSG might have pulled further clear when Alessandro Florenzi got the break of the ball, but the Italy right-back's shot was touched over the bar by Radoslaw Majecki as they raced to a 1-0 lead at the break.

After some changes in the second half, Monaco pushed their opponents to the limits with Caio Henrique carving slipping the ball in for Wissam Ben Yedder six minutes after the resumption, but once again Navas was off his line in time to make the save. Martins came close, but his cross-turned shot came back off the crossbar in the 68th minute with Mbappé hitting the woodwork at the other end with a fine lob from range.

Mbappe was to put the ball past their opponents reach eight minutes from time after Angel Di Maria danced past his marker to slid the ball for the Frenchman.
