PARIS (AFP) – Kylian Mbappe was sent off for a shocking tackle late in extra time as Paris Saint-Germain lost a dramatic French Cup final on penalties to Rennes on Saturday.

Christopher Nkunku blazed his sudden death spot-kick over the bar as Rennes won the shootout 6-5, having earlier come from two goals down to draw 2-2 at the Stade de France.

Dani Alves and Neymar scored for PSG, but a Presnel Kimpembe own goal and an Edson Mexer header hauled Rennes level, before Mbappe was dismissed and Rennes denied PSG a domestic double.
