After finishing the championship undefeated, PSG concluded its season with a sixth victory in the Coupe de France at the expense of Nantes (31-36).
Intractable in the league, PSG Handball was also in the Coupe de France. In an Accor Arena in Paris-Bercy full as an egg, Raul Gonzalez Gutierrez’s players went for their sixth title in the competition, their second in a row. Determined to inflict a second national defeat on the Parisians, after that conceded against Chambéry in the Final Four of the Coupe de la Ligue last December, the protégés of Alberto Entrerrios held their own. Under the impetus of Thibaud Briet (8 goals on 11 shots), the “H” raced in the lead during the first ten minutes, but failed to make the difference. In difficulty in his goal for his last with Nantes, Emil Nielsen (3 saves at 16% efficiency) could only delay the deadline a little because, without forcing their talent, PSG took control of this final, leading by three goals shortly after the quarter-hour mark thanks to Kamil Syprzak (6 goals on 10 shots). The gap then oscillated between two and four goals before a new boost from the players of the Capital. With Elohim Prandi (6 goals from 7 shots) in charge, the French champions took a lead of up to six goals before Valero Rivera (6 goals on 7 shots) does not find a few solutions to bring his team back to five lengths when returning to the locker room.

PSG extinguished the Nantes revolt
The start of the second act first saw Mickaël Robin (10 saves at 34% efficiency) cast doubt on the Parisian attackers with saves against Nedim Remili (6 goals from 9 shots) and Nikola Karabatic (2 goals from 4 shots) then a second throw from seven meters stopped against Kamil Syprzak. On the other side of the field, Linus Persson (3 goals on 4 shots), Rok Ovnicek (1 goal on 3 shots), Dragan Pechmalbec (3 goals on 4 shots) then Thibaud Briet allowed Nantes to return to a length four minutes after recovery. However, Linus Persson’s soty for two minutes in stride allowed PSG to recover with a 3-0 allowing him to restore a safe distance. While he is going to join Saint-Raphaël, Vincent Gérard (15 saves at 36% efficiency) did not want to miss his last in the Parisian jersey and multiplied the interventions against the Nantes attackers. The result was a gap that started to rise again, notably thanks to Ferran Sole Sala (3 goals on 6 shots). For the last match of his career, Kiril Lazarov played little and could not influence the outcome of this final. Luc Steins (5 goals on 5 shots) gave PSG an eight-point lead with eight minutes left to play. A controlled end to the match which allowed Yann Genty (1 save at 33% efficiency) to play a few minutes before leaving the capital club, which will experience a major upheaval this summer. Before that, PSG concluded a successful season with a five-point victory (31-36) and a second consecutive Cup-Championship double.
