Paris Saint-Germain will meet Olympique Lyonnais in the Coupe de France final after Luis Enrique and his team secured a 1-0 win over Stade Rennais on Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes.

PSG had the upper hand in the first half over Rennes in the attack. The Parisians registered six shots total while the visitors countered with three. Even with these shots, the game remained scoreless for most of the first 45 minutes.

In the 37th minute, Kylian Mbappé had the first chance to open the scoring in the contest on a penalty kick shot, but Rennes goalkeeper Steve Mandanda made the save to keep the game scoreless. 

Still, the 25-year-old redeemed himself minutes later scoring in the 40th minute after his shot deflected off a Rennes player, allowing PSG to head into the dressing room with the advantage. 

The second half didn't have any goals, but both teams had their chances to find the back of the net. Rennes had six total shots as they attempted to find the equalizer while PSG countered with four total shots with eyes on securing the insurance goal.

Both teams will now shift their attention to Ligue 1 this weekend. Rennes faces AS Monaco on Sunday, which is very important as the two teams are vying to land a European competition spot for next season. 

As for PSG, they'll play Clermont Foot on Saturday before the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie against Barcelona next week.
