Kylian mbappe’s goal sends PSG to french cup final.

Paris St Germain secured their spot in the French Cup final with a convincing 1-0 victory over Stade Rennais, propelled by Kylian Mbappe’s decisive strike. The win inches PSG closer to their 15th trophy, with Mbappe’s eighth tournament goal proving pivotal.

Despite an early penalty save by Rennais’ goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, Mbappe found the back of the net just three minutes later, capitalizing on a pass from Fabian Ruiz and igniting jubilation among the Parc des Princes faithful.

PSG’s path to the final will see them square off against Olympique Lyonnais on May 25, following Lyon’s 3-0 triumph over Valenciennes FC in Tuesday’s semifinal clash.

Rennes, eager for an equalizer in the second half, struggled to break through PSG’s defense, with their best chance coming from a Martin Terrier effort, thwarted once again by Mandanda.

Reflecting on the match, PSG boss Luis Enrique acknowledged Rennes’ resilience while emphasizing the importance of cup competitions. With their focus now shifting to upcoming fixtures, including a Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona, Enrique stressed the need for consistency and high performance across all competitions.

As PSG prepares for their upcoming challenges, including a crucial Ligue 1 fixture against Clermont Foot, Enrique remains focused on maintaining momentum and delivering strong performances, emphasizing the significance of each match, regardless of the competition.
