  • MENDES… stuttered run-up, and he fires it into the roof of the net. Straight down the middle.

    4-3 to Lyon.

  • PAREDES for PSG… very nicely done. Goalkeeper sent the wrong way and he tucked it into the bottom corner handsomely.

    3-3… no misses so far.

  • CAQUERET… scores. Navas didn't move and the youngster found the corner.

    3-2 to Lyon.

  • VERRATTI next up… beautifully done. Sends the goalkeeper the wrong way and tucks it in.

    2-2 the current score.

  • EKAMBI… sneaks it into the bottom corner. Navas got a hand and somehow didn't keep it out. It trickled in.

    2-1 to Lyon.

  • DI MARIA is first up for PSG…and he tucks it past Lopes.

    Keeper wasn't far away but a well-struck penalty into the bottom corner.

    1-1 now on pens.

  • ANDERSON… rifles it in. Straight down the middle, high and hard. Brilliant penalty.

    1-0 to Lyon.


    Right then, Lyon will take the first penalty and we're playing in front of the end where the PSG fans are.


    That wasn't the greatest game I've ever watched, to put it mildly.

    At least we get to see the spectacle of a shootout, though.

  • FT: PSG 0-0 LYON

    That's it – we're going to penalties.

    No goals after 120 minutes and we'll have a shootout to decide the winners of the last ever French League Cup.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    120, One final chance with the free-kick.

    Neymar and Di Maria stand over the ball…

    It's Neymar to have a go, but it's blazed over.

    He shakes his head and wants the ground to swallow him up.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    119, RED CARD for Rafael.

    He brought down Di Maria when he was clean through and is shown his marching orders.

    It was very close to being inside the penalty area as well, but free-kick right on the edge.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    118, Nothing to report, sadly.

    I had faith that this game would come good in the end but it's let me down.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    114, Diallo on for Marquinhos for PSG for the final six minutes or so.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    112, Cornet with the CHANCE… and it's high and wide.

    His eyes lit up there as the corner came in to the far post but his volley didn't find the target.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    111, Again it looks like Lyon are coming on strong and look just as likely to maybe grab a winner here.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    107, Paredes tries to thread the eye of the needle to Sarabia… but there's not much room for that pass.

    Haven't seen much of Neymar of late, does he have a moment of magic in him?

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    106, Thomas Tuchel hands out some final instructions to his players and we're underway again.

    15 minutes for a winner – 15 minutes to avoid the shootout lottery.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    105, Half-time in extra-time.

    We're just 15 minutes away from penalties.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    103, It's all very laboured and slow.

    Not much urgency from either team.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    99, Absolutely cynical from Paredes and he is the latest man into the referee's book.

    He wanted no part of that foot race with Traore down the wing and just blatantly brought him down.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    95, Chances at both ends.

    First of all it was Di Maria who rifled in a low shot from distance which was saved by Lopes. It needed some saving, too, as it was heading towards the bottom corner.

    At the other end it was Traore trying to bend one into the bottom corner, but it was deflected wide of the far post.

    Navas was scrambling.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    94, Naughty challenge from Marcal on Sarabia and he's going into the referee's note-book for that. He left a bit on his man there, very nasty.

    Marquinhos also went into the book for an earlier foul.

    Getting a bit chippy.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    92, A bit of cramp for Thiago Silva I think.

    Paredes slots into midfield and Marquinhos drops back into his place in the centre of defence.

  • PSG 0-0 LYON

    91, Right then, here we go.

    Extra-time is underway.

    Paredes has replaced Thiago Silva for the extra period.
