Coupe de France: PSG and Kylian Mbappé celebrate against the Pays de Cassel (7-0) and find OM in eighth place
PSG easily qualified for the knockout rounds of the Coupe de France with a 7-0 win over Pays de Cassel (Regionalliga 1 club) in Lens on Monday night. Paris will return to Marseille in early February.
OM-PSG, it will therefore be the poster for the knockout stage of the Coupe de France after the Parisians’ victory this Monday night over the Pays de Cassel (7-0), thanks in particular to a quintet by Kylian Mbappé.
We don’t know if it’s due to the temperature difference between Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and Lens, but it took PSG a little time to find the goal against the modest Pays de Cassel club.
It took half an hour of play before the north lock broke and, above all, Kylian Mbappé accelerated. The PSG forward, wearing his armband for the first time and chasing Edinson Cavani’s goal record (the Uruguayan has scored 200 goals, the Frenchman 196), scored a hat-trick within 12 minutes of the game (29th minute).e35e41e). In between, Neymar was there for his production (33e).
Kylian Mbappé’s story
In the second half, the Parisians added three new goals, including two from Mbappé (56th, 78th). This makes him the first player in the capital’s history to score a quintet in an official competition.
He was also top scorer in the oldest French club competition. The 2022 runner-up has scored his 29 goals in 25 games.
“We are happy that we qualified and respect this team,” said Mbappé on the beIN SPORTS microphone. Respect means playing at our level. It’s a great opportunity for them and for us, because we also come from amateur football, the striker started with beIN Sports. (…) We are very happy to come and play and it is an important competition for Paris Saint-Germain. (…) (the encounter with OM) It’s a football match and we’re preparing for it. But first it’s Ligue 1 and Sunday’s game against Reims.
