Kylian Mbappé lifted the Coupe de France Saturday night at the Stade Pierre Mauroy after Paris Saint-Germain defeated Olympique Lyonnais 2-1 in his last game with the capital club and in this competition.

The 25-year-old took the pitch as PSG's striker in the starting 11 as he looked to cap off his final game with the Parisians scoring a goal against Lyon. While the capital club did score two goals in the first half, none came from Mbappé.

In the final 45 minutes, Mbappé couldn't find the back of the net for the storybook ending. Still, the player was searching for that goal, considering he had nine total shots in the contest. 

While the PSG star didn't score in his last game for the Parisians, the reigning Ligue 1 champions have seen so many goals from Mbappé, especially in the Coupe de France. Mbappé appeared in 30 matches in this competition between AS Monaco and PSG, scoring 37 goals and registering 17 assists.

During his time at Monaco, Mbappé scored his first goal in the Coupe de France in 2017 against FC Chambly Oise. Since moving to PSG, the Frenchman has scored 35 goals in his tournament, but this season marked the most goals he's scored during the competition with eight goals.

Mbappé's last goal in the Coupe de France occurred in April during the semifinals. He scored the crucial goal in PSG's 1-0 win over Stade Rennais, propelling Luis Enrique and his team to the final against Lyon.

With Mbappé on their team, the capital club won the Coupe de France in 2018 against Les Herbiers VF, marking his first timeever winning the trophy. 

Mbappé went on to win this domestic cup three more times: in 2020 against AS Saint-Étienne, in 2021 against his former club Monaco, and now in 2024 with a win over Lyon. 

The PSG standout adds one last trophy to his decorated career at the club level in France before he departs and begins a new chapter in his career.
