Cavani double helps PSG win cup

Paris Saint-Germain won the French League Cup yesterday morning (Singapore time), beating Lyon 2-1 in the final at the Stade de France to secure the first trophy of a likely domestic double.

Edinson Cavani was the match-winner for Laurent Blanc's side, scoring a first-half brace, one of which came from a controversial penalty.

Alexandre Lacazette pulled a goal back for Lyon in the second half, but PSG proved just too strong.

PSG are just two wins away from winning the French league title and completing the domestic double.
