PSG beat Monaco 3-0 to claim fifth consecutive League Cup

PSG beat Monaco 3-0 to claim fifth consecutive League Cup

Radamel Falcao has slammed the officiating of referee Clement Turpin in the 3-0 Coupe de la Ligue loss to PSG, branding it "a disgrace".

After impressing with Los Rojiblancos, the tenacious wing-back sealed a move to Barcelona in 2008, where he became renowned as one of the best defenders in the world in his eight season spell with the Catalan giants. While constantly failing at the European level, the French club has no equivalence in France and trash opposing teams every single week.

As per Mister Chip's Twitter account, the Brazilian ace has now surpassed any other professional footballer in the game's history, winning a gigantic haul of trophies including three Champions Leagues, six La Liga titles, one Serie A title and a staggering 12 domestic up competitions across Spain, France, Italy and Brazil. Payet had another chance from the spot soon after and this time made no mistake to seal Marseille's win.

In a whirlwind first-half performance top scorer Lewandowski struck twice and James Rodriguez, Thomas Mueller and Franck Ribery were also on target for the Bavarians, who face Sevilla in the Champions League last eight next week.

Angel Di Maria doubled their lead in the 20th minute, latching onto a patch from Mbappe to beat keeper Danijel Subasic at his near post.

That a mooted winter move to Liverpool didn't come off may be the source of his frustration, but even if his head has been turned, Lemar, given is potential as an attacking catalyst, simply needs to display higher levels of professionalism and determination, regardless of a likely summer move.

DF Yuri Berchiche, 6 - It was by no means his best performance in PSG colours, but it was another solid showing and it further underlined why Layvin Kurzawa has fallen out of favour. The Argentine drilled a direct shot at Subasic, and what looked to have been a routine save, ended up rattling the back of the net.

PSG is unbeaten in 40 domestic cup matches, since January 2014 when it lost to Montpellier 2-1 in the French Cup.

In fact, there was more apathy in the stands than there was among the players, with a less than full house at Matmut Atlantique. We're very proud of this new trophy.

Rony Lopes wasted a golden opportunity for Monaco to halve the deficit as he chipped wide with only PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp to beat.

Leonardo Jardim has now suffered the same fate as he did last season in this competition's final, with his Monaco side succumbing to defeat against the French tycoons, losing 4-1 last year - another three-goal margin.

PSG took an early lead through Edinson Cavani's penalty, which was awarded after consultation with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), after Mbappe was fouled by Kamil Glik.
