Thomas Tuchel’s record in domestic cup finals

Christian Pulisic, a half-time sub, was taken out by Frankfurt keeper Lukas Hradecky as he went round him. It was a clear penalty, which Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted with a panenka. Tuchel had the first winner’s medal of his managerial career in his last game in charge of Dortmund.

2019 Coupe de France final: PSG 2 Rennes 2 (5-6 on pens)

PSG cruised to the final without conceding a goal in Tuchel’s first taste of the primary French cup competition, but they came unstuck in the final.

Having led 2-0 early on against Rennes through Dani Alves and Neymar, the finishing line felt like a formality for the Ligue 1 champions. But an own goal on the stroke of half-time, a succession of missed opportunities and then a set-piece equaliser took an enthralling contest to 30 additional minutes.

Kylian Mbappe, responsible for some of those wasted chances, was sent off for a bad tackle as PSG’s frustrations boiled over. In the shoot-out, PSG midfielder Christopher Nkunku was the first player to miss with the 12th penalty.
