For the third time this season, Paris Saint-Germain overcame HBC Nantes, this time in the Coupe de France final on Saturday at Bercy (36-31). The players of the capital thus keep their title acquired last year.
In a meeting which opposed the first two of the last French championship, PSG had to wait until the end of the last quarter of an hour to accelerate, and return to the locker room with a five-goal lead (18-13).
If the Nantes people thought they could come back at the start of the second period, thanks to a Mickaël Robin from the big nights, Vincent Gérard also responded to allow his team to maintain the gap. As in 2015, Nantes did not find the key against PSG and lost in the final of the Coupe de France, this time by five goals (36-31).
For the last of Nedim Remili, Benoît Kounkoud, Mikkel Hansen, Vincent Gérard and Yann Genty, the Parisians offer themselves a second trophy this season, after their title in Starligue punctuated by 30 victories in as many matches, and their sixth Coupe de France. In Paris, a page is turned, but the culture of winning on the national scene persists again and again.
