VILLENEUVE D’ASCQ, France (AP) – Paris Saint-Germain beat Lyon 2-1 in the French Cup final and completed the double in Kylian MbappĂ©’s last game for the club on Saturday.

France winger Ousmane Dembele and Spain midfielder Fabian Ruiz scored for PSG in the first half.

Lyon defender Jake O’Brien got a consolation goal in the second half.
