PSG wins and advance in the Cup of France
Without Neymar Jr, who is recovering from a fifth-metatarsal injury on his right foot, PSG was favorite against Villefranche Beaujolais, the French third division team in a match in the eighth-finals of the French Cup in Lyon.
But it was a very difficult match against a very well-placed team on the pitch. The Paris team got the result that secured the classification only in the extra time after tie at 0x0 in the normal time. Draxler, Diaby and Cavani scored the goals of Paris Saint-Germain. Mbappé, who as well as Cavani started on the bench, gave two assists.
The curiosity of the game was the expulsion of the PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel, after complaining a lot for considering that a athlete of the Villefranche should receive red card. The defeated team was, at times, violent.
After a warm first half, without many chances, Thomas Tuchel decided to put his stars - Mbapeé and Cavani - on the pitch in the second stage. And both were fundamental to ensure the classification of PSG. Both participated directly in the 3 goals of their team.
PSG is heading towards the fifth consecutive title of the French Cup!
The next match of PSG will be next Saturday (09/02) against Bordeaux 12th place in Ligue 1.
