PARIS  – Paris St Germain will resume their quest for the quadruple when they lock horns with St Etienne in the French Cup final on Friday in the first professional match in the country following a four-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The showpiece match will take place at the 80,000-capacity Stade de France in Paris but only 5,000 fans will be allowed to attend in line with government regulations to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus which has upset St Etienne followers.

PSG are Ligue 1 champions and, with a League Cup final versus Olympique Lyonnais and a Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta coming up, victory on Friday would keep Thomas Tuchel’s side in contention for an unprecedented quadruple.

“This will be our first official match since March. I have the feeling that we are prepared for this final as best as possible,” Tuchel told a news conference on Thursday. “The best thing to prepare for big challenges is to win titles.”
