On 27 April 2019, Rennes took on Paris St-Germain (PSG) in the Finale Coupe de France – the French Cup Final.
The mighty PSG were looking for a fourth domestic double in five years, and took control early on through goals from Dani Alves and Neymar. But then, against all the odds, mid-table Rennes came back to draw 2-2 after 90 minutes, and went on to triumph 6-5 in the penalty shootout.
The occasion marked Rennes’ first French Cup since 1971, and was PSG’s first cup final defeat since 2011.
Gearhouse Broadcast France provided RF systems for the pre-match and two Camera Corps Goal Cams for the match itself, which was held at the Stade de France in Paris. The Goal Cams are a particularly good piece of kit – they’re easy to rig and provide great shots from right inside the goal. And when you’re covering a match where the ball hits the back of the net 15 times, that’s exactly where you want to be.
