PSG threw away a 2-0 lead, Kylian Mbappé was sent off and Neymar hit out as Rennes won their first trophy in 48 years
Rennes had not won a trophy since 1971 and it showed. Keeper Tomas Koubek hared wide-eyed down the touchline; Hatem Ben Arfa was in tears; sporting director Olivier Létang booted balls into the crowd; Clément Grenier cramped up chasing Koubek; and 30,000 Bretons erupted at the end of a raucous night at the Stade de France. Amid a downpour in Paris, the cup of shocks produced one of its most memorable upsets as PSG were embarrassed again, a talented young manager triumphed and Ben Arfa had his revenge.
Incredibly, PSG had been 2-0 up. Dani Alves gave them the lead in the 13th minute, volleying Neymar’s corner past Koubek à la Beckham and Scholes. Neymar the lead with a cute dink eight minutes later. It looked like the rest of the match would be a formality, but Presnel Kimpembe’s sliced clearance flew past Alphonse Areola just before half-time to give Rennes hope.
