PSG Has Not Passed The Round Of 16 Of Coupe De France Since Lionel Messi Joined Them

If Lionel Messi leaves PSG at the end of this season when his current contract expires, the Coupe De France would become the only competition that Lionel Messi has played in his career and failed to win it.

The Argentina National has competed in numerous competitions in his career including La Liga, Copa Del Rey, Spanish Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, FIFA World Cup, Copa America, UEFA Super Cup, UEFA Champions League, French Super Cup and French Ligue 1. He has lifted all the Titles that he has played in at least once but, he has failed to succeed in the Coupe De France.

The Coupe De France was arguably PSG’s birthright before Lionel Messi joined the Parisians in 2021. PSG has won the Coupe De France 6 times between 2015 and 2021. The only time that they didn’t win it during that period, they finished as First runner-up, in the 2018/19 season.

They won it consecutively in the 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 Seasons. During the 2018/19 season, they lost the title in the final before winning it back-to-back in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 Seasons.

However, since Lionel Messi joined PSG, the French Ligue 1 Giant has failed to reach the Quarterfinals of the Cup competition. Last season, they were knocked out of the Coupe De France at the Round of 16.

This season, the Parisians have been knocked out of the Coupe De France in the Round of 16 again. Marseille beat the reigning Ligue 1 Champion by 2-1 to eliminate them at the Round of 16 for the second consecutive season.
