In France, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) won the last ever Coupe de la Ligue on Friday July 31, 2020 after beating Olympique Lyon (6-5) on penalties.

It should be recalled that Cameroon's Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was not part of the squad that won the trophy. But in the Olympique Lyon Karl Toko Ekambi entered into the field of play at the 80th minute and he scored the second penalty kick for Olympique Lyon. Bertrand Traore missed the only spot kick of the series as PSG collected their second trophy in a week.
