Montpellier Defeats Paris Saint-German in Coupe de France in Ligue 1 Final


Montpellier defeated Paris Saint-German in Coupe de France in Ligue 1 final with three goals to two. Interestingly, Presnel Kimpembe socered own goal in the 21st minute for PSG likewise, Ambroise Oyongo scored own goal for Montpellier in the first 12th minute.

Angel Di Maria had looked like securing just a second win in six games across all competitions for the Ligue 1 champions but, after missing a number of golden opportunities, Andy Delort showed superb composure in the 80th minute to draw Montpellier level.

Thomas Tuchel's side threw away a two-goal lead to ultimately lose on penalties to Rennes on Saturday and never looked like returning to winning ways in a display characterised by woeful defending and scant attacking threat.

Ambroise Oyongo's own goal put them ahead after 12 minutes but Presnel Kimpembe – who endured a torrid game – put through his own net at the other end in the 21st minute to draw the hosts level.

Substitute Souleymane Camara then took advantage of a Leandro Paredes error to fire past Gianluigi Buffon five minutes from time to secure a famous win.
