The last year of the French League Cup was won by Paris St. Germain and after a triumph in the league and the French Cup, they completed the home treble. The Paris team of Friday’s final in Saint-Denis with Lyon decided, after a goalless ninety minutes, to extend to a penalty shootout, in which he succeeded 6: 5.
Paris St. Germain was able to decide the match at the end of the extra time, when the referee expelled the defender Rafael of Lyon for a foul on Ángel Di María. However, the Brazilian striker Neymar sent a direct kick from the border of the penalty area above and the match was aimed at a penalty shootout.
Lyon led 5: 4, but Neymar tied it, followed by Paris St. Germain Keylor Navas canceled Bertrand Traoré’s attempt and Pablo Sarabia decided to win. The Paris team expanded the record number of triumphs in the competition to nine and became the last winner of the League Cup for at least a few years.

The management of the French competitions did not find anyone interested in broadcasting rights for the next four years and canceled the League Cup, which had been played since 1995, until further notice. Another reason was the effort to reduce the number of matches in the season.
