Coupe de France Final – Issa Cissokho’s late own goal gift PSG victory in French Cup final 

​Angers 0 – 1 Paris Saint Germain

PSG’s dominance in the domestic cup competitions continued on Saturday after they captured a record 11th French Cup title by beating Angers 1-0 thanks to an injury-time own goal.

 The capital side, who owed their victory to Issa Cissokho’s own goal a minute into added time in an otherwise dull final, claimed the title for the third year running and have now won 32 consecutive League Cup and French Cup games.

Their last defeat in a cup match came in the 2013/14 season when they were knocked out by Montpellier in the last 32 of the French Cup.

The result at the Stade de France should ease the pressure on coach Unai Emery after his side failed in the Champions League and lost their Ligue 1 title to Monaco, but they will end the season with two trophies, having beaten  Monaco 4-1in the French League Cup final in April.

PSG now own one more French Cup title than Marseille.

Cavani, who has scored 49 goals in all competitions this season, squandered a chance to match Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 2015/16 tally of 50 when he missed the target from close range.
The result earned Girondins de Bordeaux, who finished sixth in Ligue 1, a Europa League spot next season.
