Stats & Facts: A look back at the win over Rennes

Match in numbers

Check out the key stats and facts from Les Parisiens’ 1-0 win over Rennes last night in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France at the Parc des Princes!


Against Rennes, Paris Saint-Germain played the 22nd Coupe de France semi-final of their history, making it through to the final for the 20th time in total and thereby giving themselves a ratio to rival even the best ones handed out on X (formerly Twitter). In fact, the capital club have now reached more finals than any other team in France, overtaking Marseille's total of 19, of which just nine have come since Les Parisiens' inaugural season back in 1970–1971.

Paris were also playing their 255th Coupe de France match last night, with their overall record in the competition standing at 183 wins, 30 draws and 42 defeats, making for a 71% win percentage!

KYLIAN the opener

By scoring the only goal of the game against Rennes, Kylian Mbappé netted for the eighth time in six Coupe de France outings this season, with only his 2020–2021 total of seven goals in the competition trumping his current tally. Meanwhile, François M'Pelé is the only player to have done at least this well in the cup for Paris Saint-Germain, having scored ten goals in nine games in the 1974–1975 season

Five of Paris's six shots on target last night came from Mbappé, with these five shots representing the entirety of the striker's efforts on goal in the game. This is the highest number of shots taken by any PSG player whilst still getting them all on target since Mbappé himself got six on target against AC Ajaccio on 13th May 2023.

Finally, KM has also scored in every round of the competition so far, just as Pablo Sarabia did between the round of 64 and the semi-finals back in 2019–2020. If Mbappé bags a goal in the final, he'll have pulled off the unprecedented achievement of finding the back of the net in every single game of the club's Coupe de France run, not to mention opening the scoring each time!

2024 synonymous with unbeaten

Well, not really, but you get the idea. Since the start of the calendar year, Paris are yet to taste defeat even once, a stat that makes them a member of a rather exclusive club in Europe and certainly bodes well for the future. Better still, the capital club haven't lost any of their last 26 games across all competitions, with this run of 19 wins and seven draws equalling their second-longest unbeaten streak in a single season, which came between July 1985 and January 1986 (their longest-ever such run stretching 37 games between August 1993 and April 1994).

Incidentally, Paris haven't lost any of their last eight encounters against Rennes specifically, be it in the Coupe de France, the now defunct Coupe de la Ligue or the Trophée des Champions, registering seven wins and one draw in that time.
