Fans Return To The Stadium In France As PSG Win French Cup by ogbiwa: 6:27am On Jul 25
Paris St-Germain overcame an injury to Kylian Mbappe to beat 10-man Saint-Etienne and win the French Cup in a game for which some fans were allowed into the Stade de France.

This was the first game in France after the league was ended in April because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Neymar opened the scoring in a fiery first half in which Loic Perrin was sent off for a bad foul on Mbappe.

It prompted a melee on the pitch before the injured Mbappe had to go off.

The France forward left the pitch in tears and later returned to the dugout on crutches. He will be a serious doubt for PSG's Champions League quarter-final with Atalanta in August.

Neymar's goal proved enough to seal a 13th French Cup for PSG as the second half played out with few incidents of note, with both sides showing tiredness on their return to competitive action.

Mbappe injury takes shine off win
PSG were awarded the league title after the season was ended early and this win means they have completed a league and cup double.

However, their hopes of adding League Cup and Champions League success to that have been dented by the injury to Mbappe.

With many players struggling to get up to speed after four months without competitive football, Mbappe was one of the most lively players on the pitch in the opening stages. It was his powerful shot that led to the opener as Jessy Moulin spilled the ball at Neymar's feet for the opener.

PSG were considerably less threatening after Mbappe went off injured and a lengthy absence will be a real blow to the French champions' hopes of success in Europe, with the 21-year-old having scored 29 goals in 33 appearances for PSG this season.

"Everyone is worried. Everyone who saw the foul is worried. Of course I'm worried," said boss Thomas Tuchel.

"We have to be patient because we don't have any news. I think he will undergo tests tonight."

PSG captain Thiago Silva, added: "I hope Kylian is going to recover as quickly as possible because he's a vital player for us."

Fans return, but how did it go?
There will have been particular interest in this tie from clubs across Europe as a limited number of fans were allowed to attend.

England will not have supporters inside stadiums until October at the earliest, but this fixture provided a glimpse of what it could look like in the Premier League and English Football League once crowds are allowed to return.

Fewer than 5,000 spectators were permitted at the 80,000-seater venue under stringent health regulations, with fans sitting apart.

The atmosphere was, understandably, considerably more muted than it would be for a cup final in normal times but those in attendance still made themselves heard.

It was a welcome first step in the right direction as football tries to return to some sort of normality.

Nice one France. Whoever made the final decision to end Ligue 1 early must have gone through a lot of regret all these while. NEVER be pressured by people's emotions into taking a decision in the heat of the moment, it usually won't turn out well when the dust settles.

It was a collective decision imposed on them by the French government.

Btw I hope to see Mbape in UCL next month.

its nice finally seeing fans on the pitch from the same country that was quick to end its league because of the covid pandemic staying that's its not safe to play football in other to easily contain the virus, meaning change is constant..
would always be an easy win for psg but it came with a big and heavy price of having the best player on that team injured..
it was a heavy blow on PSG and i do pity them as soon as i saw mbappe crying after coming off and i pray the injury isnt that worst as feared, ucl resumes in weeks time and he may not be perfectly in shape if rushed back.
psg are facing the inform atalanta and would need keylian badly because I don't see that unserious neyma leading them to UCL glory, i jus pray he comes back quicker and better..

It was the French government who said sports cannot return until now and there was no way they were going to resume the league and conclude it before a new one starts that way why it was cancelled.

yes, i say it again, he is too unserious...a serious player with the kinda talents ney have would have won the ballon d or a long time ago..
am a strong barca fan and i know what am saying, for example no professional footballer keeps doing that show booting banter in a serious match, how can a player build a successful career from mocking other smaller teams and players

Nice.. Football really seems boring lately because of the absence of fans in the stadium. I think the football bodies should find means to make fans return to stadiums as soon as possible. Probably by making limited tickets available on Match days so the whole stadiums wouldn't be getting jam packed and they can have like one or two seats separating them from each other. And also, they can arrange for health officials to conduct quick Covid-19 test for fans outside the stadiums before they go in for each match. That way, they will be sure no known positive person is entering the stadium...

Nice one. Things are getting back to normal gradually. That's a good sign. I am 100peecent sure that the France FA would regret not completing the season alongside the other elite leagues.
Wishing mbappe a quick recovery ahead of champ league.
