PSG’s opponents in this final are Lyon whose league season finished with them in seventh, just outside the Europa League places. While the coronavirus pandemic has blocked their league route to Europe next season, a way in through a second Coupe de la Ligue win should give incentive to Rudi Garcia’s team.

It may be three months later than scheduled but here it is, the last ever Coupe de la Ligue final. French champions PSG have dominated this competition in recent years – this is their sixth final in just seven seven seasons. With a Champions League second leg to come, another win would be a good morale boost for Thomas Tuchel’s team.
