Cavani double hands PSG French League Cup trophy

 Paris St Germain collected their first trophy of the season when Edinson Cavani's double secured a 2-1 victory against Olympique Lyon in the French League Cup final on Saturday.

Uruguay striker Cavani netted twice in the first half, including a controversial penalty, to hand PSG their fourth League Cup title on a chilly night at the Stade de France.

Alexandre Lacazette reduced the arrears in the second half but Remi Garde's team could not find an equaliser.

Laurent Blanc's PSG team will now turn their attention towards claiming a second Ligue 1 title in succession as they hold a 10-point lead over AS Monaco with five games remaining.

Blanc claimed his side had put their Champions League quarter-final elimination by Chelsea behind them and the former France coach appeared to be right for a while.

Six days after losing 1-0 at Lyon in Ligue 1, PSG started the final by imposing their possession football on the game while their opponents sat back and waited to counter attack.

However, Lyon were forced to change their plans after four minutes when PSG scored their first goal in three games since striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was ruled out with a thigh injury.
