After beating Bastia 7-0 in their opening match in this cup tournament the club from the France’s capital has now put 4 goals in the Rennes’ net to secure a place in the next round.
Julian Draxler is being proved to be a very good signing for the French Ligue 1 title holders. The young German who has just joined the French giants in the January has already got 4 goals in the PSG shirt only in his 5 outings for the club. The former Wolfsburg superstar has got another brace on the Wednesday night to take his team to the next stage.
The 23 years old German winger opened the scoring on the 27th minute to give his side an early lead in the match. Brazilian winger Lucas Moura doubled the lead just 11 minutes later, thanks to his 13th strike of the season. The 24 years old attacker had netted on 13 occasions last season but he already has managed to equal that this season with plenty more games remaining in this campaign. The first half finished with the 2-0 advantage for the touring side.
Draxler got his second of the game on the 68th minute of the game and as soon as his team got the 3 goals lead, the in form winger was taken off the field and he was replaced by Argentine midfielder Javier Pastore who has come back from an injury and was warmly welcomed by the fans. With just minutes left in the clock Hatem Ben Arfa scored at the very end of the game to claim a 4-0 victory to finish the game. It was the 2nd strike for 29 years old, former New Castle United play maker. Unai Emery must be delighted with his lads performances.
