A quarter of an hour was enough to unlock the notice board. Against the Stéphanois, the Parisians opened the scoring in the 14th minute of play in the final of the Coupe de France on Friday thanks to Neymar. The Brazilian’s goal owes a lot to the work of Kylian Mbappé, released a quarter of an hour later due to injury.
The Parisian striker put a boost in midfield, leaning for a one-two on Di Maria before coming up against Jessy Moulin. The Greens goalkeeper got the upper hand on Mbappé on the latter’s cross strike, but Neymar, in the second blade was a few meters away to propel the ball under the crossbar.
A few minutes before this opening of the scoring, it is the Stéphanois who could have taken the advantage. Taking advantage of Idrissa Gueye’s loss of ball, Romain Hamouma slipped the ball to his right for Bouanga. The Greens winger erased Marquinhos but his cross shot crashed into the base of Keylor Navas’ post.
