There were five gap divisions between the two teams. And it was seen on the ground. As expected, PSG walked across from Linas-Montlhléry, this Sunday, in the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France. Faced with Essonne fans, who play in R1 (the sixth national level), the Parisians did not have to force their talent to make a difference. Led by Edinson Cavani, they easily won 5-0 at the Robert-Bobin stadium in Bondoufle. The Uruguayan forward, captain for one night, scored twice. What give him a smile, even if he missed several frank opportunities.
The meeting was also marked by the first goal of Adil Aouchiche among professionals. By opening the scoring, the 17-year-old midfielder became the second youngest goalscorer in PSG history. Pablo Sarabia, also a double, and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting added to the cost. Faced with a formation that logically exploded physically, Julian Draxler floated in the middle and Colin Dagba was sharp in his right lane.
Linas-Montlhéry missed a 1-0 penalty
But Linas-Montlhéry could have (a little bit) doubted the capital’s club in the first period. Except that Idrissa Kanouté saw his penalty diverted by Sergio Rico in the 41st, when the score was only 1-0 … In the end, Paris did the job seriously, without most of its stars, injured or left to rest (Navas, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Verratti, Di Maria, Mbappé, Neymar, Icardi). Enough to start a marathon that must take them to Dortmund, to compete in their knockout round of the Champions League (February 18, exclusively on RMC Sport).
