Rennes 2-2 Paris St. Germain (Pens 6-5)

Rennes stunned Paris St-Germain on penalties to win their first French Cup since 1971.

Ligue 1 champions PSG, who had won the cup for the past four years, led 2-0 through a Dani Alves volley and chip from Neymar, starting his first game since January following a foot injury.

But Rennes levelled through a Presnel Kimpembe own goal and Mexer header.

Kylian Mbappe was sent off for a bad foul in extra time, while Christopher Nkunku missed the decisive penalty.
