What to remember from the 33rd day of Ligue 1
The champion: PSG, a victory for his 8th crown
This time, it’s done. After stumbling on Strasbourg (2-2), dropped in Lille (1-5) and Nantes (2-3), the PSG won for the eighth time in its history the French Championship this Sunday. While this officialization came earlier in the day after the draw of LOSC (0-0 in Toulouse), the Paris club has dominated without shaking a pale Monaco team (3-1) in the evening. The Parc des Princes was able to marvel again at the talent of Kylian Mbappé, author of a hat-trick against his club.
PSG, champion for good
At just 20 years old, the ASM ex has become the first Frenchman since Jean-Pierre Papin – in 1989-1990 – to reach the 30-goal mark on a season in L1. Neymar’s and Edinson Cavani’s comebacks, definitely back from injury, are the other good news of the day for Thomas Tuchel. But the German technician has recorded two bad, with the premature exit of Kehrer and especially Verratti, to a week of the final of the Coupe de France against Rennes. For Monaco, which is only four points ahead of the barrage, Dijon, the lights are red.
If the PSG was so sacred before its match against Monaco, it is because Lille, his runner-up, had not managed to get the three points in Toulouse in the middle of the afternoon (0-0). This meeting was a blank one, but it was not without interest. Above all, the club north may be frustrated, a goal of Thiago Mendes having been refused after intervention of the VAR for a hand of Ikoné in the surface. But the striker Lille was on all fours when Toulousain Moubandjé shot him in the arm at close range trying to clear. And how hard it is to get up without arms …
Rescued three times by Reynet, the TFC will for its part regret the lack of luck of his attackers, Durmaz and Gradel having touched the amounts of Maignan. With this draw, Lille has six points ahead of Lyon, and keeps the hand for a direct qualification for the next Champions League. Toulouse, meanwhile, is almost maintained: he has eight more units than Dijon (18th), five days from the end.
