F91 Dudelange completed a domestic double with a 4-2 win against AS Jeunesse Esch in the Luxembourg Cup final, with Aurélien Joachim on target twice.

A crowd of 2,847 descended on the Stade Josy Barthel to see the sides who finished first and second in the league meet once more. Daniel Gomez put the Esch side ahead from Dieumerci Ndongala's ball after just three minutes, but Joachim replied after 33 minutes and Dudelange forged ahead early in the second half, with Sofian Benzouien tidying up on the rebound.

Yassine Benajiba levelled for Esch on 65 minutes and they looked set for victory when Dudelange's Jean-Sebastian Legros was sent off seven minutes from the end.

However, Joachim struck his second of the evening as the game went into extra time, and with Bryan Mélisse (Dudelange) and Ndongala (Esch) then sent off, Amoudou Abdullei provided the coup de grace for the nine men, who won their fifth Luxembourg Cup.
