Mbappe strike takes PSG to the French Cup Final on a 1-0 win

    Despite missing a penalty, Mbappe bounced back with a deflected goal, leading PSG to a 1-0 win against Rennes to get to the French Cup final.

    Mbappe was having a quiet game until he faked a fall and got a penalty when he cut into the area from the left flank.

    Mandanda, the veteran goalkeeper, made the right guess, diving low to his right and deflecting the star’s penalty in the 37th minute.

    Three minutes later, Mbappe was celebrating after scoring with a lucky shot that hit the defender and completely deceived Mandanda, ending up in the bottom left corner.

    Mandanda made a great save from his France teammate Mbappe, but Rennes did little in attack to trouble Donnarumma in the PSG goal.

    Coach Luis Enrique’s team remains on course for a treble.

    PSG is going for a record-breaking 15th French Cup trophy in their match against Lyon on May 25 in Lille.

    Also, the team is 12 points ahead in the French league with seven rounds left and will face Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinals. The first leg is in Paris on Wednesday.
