PSG players on Monday evening easily won the promotion to the 1/8 finals of the French Cup. Footballers from the capital dealt with the fourth league Vannes OC, winning 4: 0. Kylian Mbappe showed his hat-trick.
Although the Parisians faced a much lower rival, Mauricio Pochettino did not intend to spare all the stars. From the first minute, Mbappe, Verratti and Donnarumma, among others, played.
The French runners-up had an advantage from the beginning, but for the first time they threatened the opponents’ goal more seriously only in the 24th minute. Then Petrel saved Herrera’s shot. After a while, the hosts goalkeeper also dealt with Wijnaldum.
In the 28th minute goalkeeper Vannes had to capitulate. Then Kimpembe took advantage of Mendes’s re-move, who opened the scoring. As a result, PSG was leading 1-0 to the break.
In the second half, Kylian Mbappe played the first violin. The PSG star raised the score in the 59th minute, taking advantage of Kimpembe’s good play-off. The ball passed over to the goalkeeper’s hand and fluttered in the net.
The Frenchman did not intend to stop at one goal. On subsequent occasions he was very effective – as a result he completed a classic hat-trick without giving Petrel much chance.
PSG could have won even higher had Ebimbe missed the post in the 86th minute. Eventually the game ended with the score 4: 0, which means, of course, the promotion of the favorite. However, Vannes should have had an honorary goal – in the 91st minute the referee did not notice that the ball crossed the goal line after a shot by one of the hosts.
