The defender got a rare goal for his club.

20 minutes later, the PSG lead was doubled thanks to an own goal from Ghislain Konan.

Neymar was at the heart f things once more, as it was his free-kick effort that cannoned off Konan and into the Reims goal.

In the 71st minute, the Saint-Germain captain Marquinhos had to leave the field of play after picking up what appeared a groin injury.

His replacement was Kouassi. He made a quick impact on events scoring PSG’s third and final goal only six minutes after coming on.

The game was wrapped up with a cheeky handball goal from Mbappe. It was obviously disallowed and got the Frenchman a yellow card for his efforts.

Paris Saint-Germain will now face Lyon in the final.
