Paris Saint-Germain secure Ligue 1 title without playing

PSG have finally been crowned champions of France after second-placed LOSC Lille Association could only manage a goalless draw at Toulouse.

Thomas Tuchel’s side squandered three chances to secure the Ligue 1 title themselves, having lost two and drawn one of their last three diversions.

Lille’s draw means that PSG have a 16-point gap at the top of the table with their closest rivals only able to procure another 15 from the matches remaining.

This is Paris Saint-Germain’s eighth league title in their history (1986, 1994, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018 before now), equalling the tally held by AS Monaco and F.C Nantes in France, and it is their sixth in the last seven years.

Saint-Etienne (10) and Marseille (nine) are the only other two clubs to have won more French group titles than the Parisians.

Paris Saint-Germain C.F face AS Monaco at the Parc des Prances on Sunday evening and will no doubt celebrate the title that they secured without even playing.
