Navas saved the last penalty and Sarabia gave him the ninth title for the Parisians in the competition.
PSG He had to go to penalties to achieve the ninth consecration in the Coupe de la Ligue, after drawing 0-0 at the Stade de France in a discreet match against Lyon.
Neymar started active in the match with a shot that passed near the post, to make forget the absence of Kylian Mbappé due to injury, but gradually the siege of the Parisians in attack went off. Only Idrissa Gueye was in danger at the end of the first stage that caused the stretch of Anthony Lopes to maintain the zero.
Memphis Depay, the great threat from Lyon, grew during the complement, although Neymar returned to be the protagonist when he finished off a free kick, from medium distance, and that once again tested the reflexes of the rival goalkeeper. Lopes was confirmed as a figure by closing the arch with various actions in the final stretch of the regulatory 90 minutes.
Angel Di María also said present with his attempts, although always with the same result: the Portuguese goalkeeper from Lyon was the most responsible for taking the game to penalties. However, in the definition from the 12 steps it was the Costa Rican Keylor Navas who became a giant by blocking Betrand Traoré’s shot, which allowed the consecration in the goal of Pablo Sarabia.
