PSG win French Cup with an 8-0 win over second division team, Yzeure. Marie-Antoinette Katoto complete hat trick already before half-time and cleared all the doubts early on.
Yzeure, the biggest surprise of the French Women’s cup in the current season, managed to avoid D1 Arkema teams along the way and defeated Nantes in the semi-final to secure the spot in the most important match in the history of the club. On the other side, PSG eliminated their biggest rivals, Olympique Lyon, in the eight-finals, followed by Montpellier and Fleury 91 in the semi-final.

Parisians were clear favorite and managed to live up to the expectations and left no chance to Yzeure. They scored five times in the first 13 minutes (Marie-Antoinette Katoto 2x, Paulina Dudek, Ashley Lawrence and Sara Däbritz) before taking their foot off the gas. Katoto managed to score a hat-trick in the 31st minute, while Ashley Lawrence and Sara Däbritz completed their braces in the second half.
Comfortable win for PSG, who will most likely finish on the 2nd place in D1 Arkema, but managed to take a cup victory, their 3rd in the history. Yzeure excedeed expectations by playing in the final and there were no hard feelings after the expected outcome.
