As Paris Saint-Germain players prepare to return to training on June 22, it’s easy to look ahead to the resumption of the UEFA Champions League but there are still two other trophies up for grabs before we can close the book on the 2019-20 season.
Prior to the shutdown of football due to the coronavirus, PSG had reached the Coupe de la Ligue final against Olympique Lyonnais and the Coupe de France final against AS Saint-Étienne.
Those two matches were originally scheduled for April 4, and April 25, respectively, but they were postponed for obvious reasons.
According to Le Parisien, the Coupe de France will be played on Friday, July 24, and the Coupe de la Ligue will take place on the following Friday, July 31.
The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) still needs to approve the dates and we still don’t know if fans will be allowed to be in attendance.
Not only will these two fixtures be a chance for PSG to add silverware to their trophy cabinet, but it will provide valuable game time to a team that will be desperately working to regain their rhythm ahead of the Champions League quarter-final, which is expected to begin on August 12.
