Coupe de France: How Did Mbappé Lead PSG to Destroy U.S. Revel 9-0 with His Hattrick?

Paris Saint-Germain are not only the best team in the history of the French Ligue 1 with 11 triumphs and nine runners-up finishes, the French juggernauts are also the most successful team in Coupe de France, also known as the French Cup. Having recorded 14 wins in the past Finals of the Coupe de France, Paris Saint-Germain was determined to return to the peak of this domestic cup competition, and they initiated their campaign in 2023/2024 in the best possible way, coming out from their Coupe de France Round of 64 fixture as 9-0 winners over U.S. Revel, a club playing in the Régional 1, the sixth tier of the French football league system.

Having been without any wins in the Coupe de France Finals of late and fresh from winning their first trophy of 2024 in the form of their 12th Trophée des Champions, PSG were motivated to start this year’s Coupe de France on a high note, and you can bet they did that in a monumental fashion. France national team captain Kylian Mbappé, who celebrated his 25th birthday not too long ago, scored a treble of goals in his club’s 9-0 demolition over Revel yesterday, with the rest of the six goals scored by Maxence N’Guessan (Own goal), Marco Asensio, Gonçalo Ramos, Randal Kolo Muani (2) and Cher Ndour.

The contest of this Coupe de France Round of 64 game between U.S. Revel and PSG was already over after the first half, since the visitors led by four goals to nil before the half-time break. The 11-time French Ligue 1 winners would increase their lead to five goals moments after the restart, before a stream of four goals being constructed in the final 20 minutes of the normal playing time. PSG’s thunderous 9-0 victory almost matched LOSC Lille’s 12-0 trashing over Golden Lion FC from the Martinique Division d’Honneur in their own Coupe de France Round of 64 game.

Luis Enrique was certainly a happy manager during the post-match conference of U.S. Revel vs. Paris Saint-Germain. He said: “It was our first match in this competition and we were eagerly anticipating the Coupe de France. It’s a special competition. We put in a very serious performance against Revel, the team was very good. Of course, it’s important for players to get game time, especially those who haven’t had many opportunities to showcase their quality since the start of the season. I think the team is strong and we had a very good game. These matches are always challenging, especially on these pitches. But the atmosphere was good, it was a great evening. We are happy.”

Senny Mayulu, the 17-year-old who made his professional senior debut in Coupe de France, spoke about his first game for PSG: “It’s a real source of pleasure. I’m very happy to have picked up my first minutes with the first team in the Coupe de France. Honestly, it’s a childhood dream that I’ve been able to fulfill and I’m really happy about it. The coach had mentioned that depending on the score, he would make substitutions. As the score was quite comfortable, he sent me on. I’m very grateful for that. At the end of the match, I could have picked up an assist, but it’s okay, I hope it will be for the next time!”

After their emphatic 9-0 Round of 64 start to the Coupe de France, PSG will have RC Lens in a French Ligue 1 away fixture in store for them next. Luis Enrique’s men have won four of their previous five league matches in recent times.
