04-04-2024 01:59 PM

Ammon News - Kylian Mbappe had a penalty saved but then scored the only goal of the game as Paris Saint-Germain beat Rennes 1-0 in the last four of the French Cup on Wednesday to set up a final showdown against Lyon.

Mbappe saw Rennes goalkeeper Steve Mandanda save his 37th-minute spot-kick at the Parc des Princes, but three minutes later the France captain found the net with a shot that took a deflection on its way in.

It was Mbappe's 39th goal of the campaign for PSG in all competitions, and he appears certain to break the 40 mark for the third time in four seasons.

PSG will play Lyon, 3-0 winners against second-tier Valenciennes in Tuesday's first semi-final, in the final in Lille on May 25 as the capital side look to add to their record tally of 14 victories in the French Cup.
