PSG made their way to a 3-0 away win against Stade Reims in the final of the recently concluded Coupe de la Ligue 1 on Wednesday. PSG fielded a strong starting line-up that boasted the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Marco Verratti and other stars. Goals from Marquinhos and Tanguy Kouassi sandwiched between a Ghislain Konan own goal ensured that the Paris-based franchise were crowned champions in the competition.
In the dying stages of the game, France and PSG forward Kylian Mbappe was clearly not happy with three goals and had the ball at the back of the net in the 89th minute. However, the youngster was booked by the match referee after he appeared to have channeled his inner Diego Maradona to score the fourth goal. The Frenchman appeared to have blatantly slapped the ball into the goal with his hand. The referee was not fooled and ended up booking Kylian Mbappe straight away.
