Paris Saint Germain continues their league dominance in French ligue

PSG continue their dominance in the Ligue 1 lifting their third consecutive title. The capital side was crowned the winner on Sunday(28th April 2024) after Monaco faced a defeat 2-3 against Lyon. Paris Saint Germain won their 12th league title in this competition and they have been chased by Marseille who has won 9th league title in this process. PSG has played 31 league games, winning 20 matches and collecting 70 points in total. They are followed by Monaco who has collected 58 points after 31 league matches. However, the French league giants PSG were stunned by Le Havre in a six-goal thriller with a score line of 3-3 at home in their last league match.

Le Havre's resistance deserves a thumbs up they took the lead three times through Christopher Operi (19'), Andre Ayew (38') and Abdoulaye Toure (61'). Even so, PSG were able to equalize through goals from Bradley Barcola (29'), Achraf Hakimi (78'), and Goncalo Ramos (90+5'). This draw was not good enough. Indeed, PSG is still not overtaken at the top of the French League standings, but they were forced to postpone celebrating the title in front of their supporters.

Fortunately, on Sunday(28th April 2024), PSG was assisted by another team to win, namely AS Monaco. Both teams took turns scoring goals and it was thought that the match would end in a draw after Lyon scored two goals through the actions of Alexandre Lacazette (22') and Said Benrahma (26'). Monaco also scored twice through Wissam Ben Yedder's brace (1', 60'). So in the final minutes of the match, precisely in the 84th minute, Malick Fofana then decided Lyon's victory by scoring the third goal. Monaco ran out of time to reply, and Lyon won the match by 3-2 in their favour. This result did not change Monaco's position in second place, however, certainly, Monaco will no longer be able to catch PSG.

So, there is a difference of 12 points between PSG and Monaco and there are three matches to be played in the league. It could be that Monaco wins three consecutive wins, and then PSG suffers three consecutive defeats. If that scenario happened, both teams would collect 70 points, but PSG would still be the champions. Luis Enrique's squad is superior head-to-head over Monaco this season. So, although mathematically the difference of 12 points can still be equalled by Monaco, other determining factors have ensured that PSG lifts the Ligue 1 trophy this season.

- PSG won the 12th league championship trophy in the club's history.

- This is PSG's 10th league trophy in the last 12 seasons. They only failed twice (2020/2021 and 2016/2017).

- This is the 7th league trophy for Kylian Mbappe with PSG, a sweet parting gift.

- Luis Enrique has presented two trophies for PSG this season, namely Ligue 1 and the French Super Cup. There are still two more trophies.
