ONENEWS.MY.ID, Jakarta – Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have qualified for the last 16 of the French Cup. They advanced after defeating the fourth division club, Vannes OC, with a score of 4-0 at the Stadio de la Rabine, Tuesday morning WIB, January 4, 2021.
Kylian Mbappe looks charming in this match. He scored three goals for PSG, in the 59th, 71st and 78th minutes. Prior to that, PSG had already got a goal from Presnel Kimpembe in the 28th minute.
This different caste game seems one-sided. PSG controlled the ball up to 66 percent. They are also far ahead in terms of shots on target, with 11 to 3.
Coach Mauricio Pochettino can’t play Lionel Messi who tested positive for Covid-19. Neymar is also still injured.
The Argentine coach fielded Mbappe up front, along with Xavi Simons and Georginio Wijnaldum. Check out his starting line-up: Gianluigi Donnarumma; Colin Dagba, Thilo Kehrer, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Ander Herrera, Marco Verratti, Edouard Michut; Xavi Simons, Kylian Mbappe, Georginio Wijnaldum.
PSG qualified with a number of other Ligue 1 clubs, such as Nantes, Marseolle, Monaco and Nice. In the round of 32, there were a number of main caste teams that ran aground, namely Rennes, who lost on penalties 4-3 (after the score 1-1) to Nancy (division 2) and Clermont, who was eliminated by Bastia (division 2) with a score of 0-2.
