PSG wins league cup

Afp
Monday, April 21, 2014

PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain won France's League Cup yesterday, beating Lyon 2-1 at the Stade de France to secure the first leg of a likely domestic football double.

Edinson Cavani was the match-winner for Laurent Blanc's side, scoring a first-half brace, one of which came from the penalty spot, and while Alexandre Lacazette pulled a goal back in the second half, PSG proved just too strong for a Lyon side who had beaten them in Ligue 1 just six days earlier.

It is the second trophy won by the club from the French capital since their takeover by Qatar Sports Investments in 2011 and subsequent transformation into one of the wealthiest clubs in Europe, following their title triumph last season.
