PARIS (Reuters) - Paris Saint-Germain continued their dominance in domestic competitions as they beat Lyon 6-5 in a penalty shootout in the French League Cup final on Friday to secure their fourth domestic treble in six years.
It was the last edition of the tournament, which was founded in 1993 but will be abandoned since next season to "reduce the season schedule.”
Under the hot temperature which reached 34 degrees Celsius at the Stade de France, both sides produced little chance at the regular time and the game finished 0-0 at the end of extra time.
The winning point for the capital-based team came after the first 10 penalties were all scored, but Keylor Navas saved Bertrand Traore’s shoot which gave Pablo Sarabia the opportunity to score for the victory.
The Spaniard made it - PSG seal their third title of the season, after the French Cup and Ligue 1.
