PSG delivered a flawless performance in the round of 64 of the French Cup, utterly dismantling US Revel, a sixth-division team, with a staggering 8-0 victory. The match was a display of sheer power and determination from the Parisian squad.
Right from the outset, PSG asserted their dominance on the field. Kylian Mbappé emerged as the unquestionable star of the game, netting three goals in the 16th, 45th, and 48th minutes, respectively. His skill and knack for finding the back of the net proved instrumental in the team's resounding triumph.
The strength of PSG was evident across every line, with contributions coming from various players. An unfortunate own goal by Maxence N'Guessan in the 38th minute further extended PSG's lead, swiftly followed by a brilliant strike from Marco Asensio in the 43rd minute, cementing the Parisian team's superiority in the first half.
The second half of the encounter was equally enthralling. Goncalo Ramos extended the lead from the penalty spot in the 71st minute, while Cher Ndour, given the opportunity to showcase his skills, contributed a goal in the 87th minute. Additionally, Randal Kolo Muani, who shone on the field, scored two more goals, rounding off the victory with strikes in the 76th and 90th minutes, respectively.
The absence of key players such as Kang In-Lee, Achraf Hakimi, and Lucas Hernandez created opportunities for players with fewer minutes on the pitch, like Cher Ndour, and the newly arrived Lucas Beraldo, to exhibit their potential and seamlessly integrate into the team.
With this resounding triumph, PSG confidently marches forward in the French Cup. Now, with their sights set on the next challenge, an encounter in the Ligue 1 against RC Lens on January 14 as visitors, the Parisian squad prepares to carry this momentum of victory and high performance into the national arena, keeping their sights on success in all competitions they partake in.
