the essential
PSG was crowned champion of France for the 12th time in its history after the defeat conceded by its runner-up Monaco in Lyon (3-2) this Sunday. With twelve points ahead of the Monegasques, the Parisians can no longer be caught up in the standings with only three days remaining.

Paris is sacred. PSG won its 12th French championship title on Sunday thanks to the defeat of Monaco in Lyon (3-2), and can now look forward to a historic treble with the Champions League and the Coupe de France. The draw conceded against Le Havre at the Parc des Princes on Saturday (3-3) had delayed this new crowning but Lyon did not let the false suspense drag on for too long by relegating the Monegasques to 12 points behind the Parisians with three days to go of Ligue 1.

The outcome was inevitable anyway. The players from the capital never trembled during an exercise that they dominated with head and shoulders, unlike the previous season when they felt the breath of the Lensois on their necks until the end. The start of the season was complicated, however, with a team in break-in mode following the arrival of former FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique. PSG only took the lead in the ranking on November 11 in Reims (3-0). That evening, Kylian Mbappé scored a hat-trick and Luis Enrique asked him to do more, the first episode in a tense relationship where the superstar’s announcement of his departure this summer led the technician to cut back on his playing time.

Despite this background with sporting and financial issues, no competitor has seen the back of the Parisian TGV again, which rushed towards the title without ever falling back. The team, with its offensive and intensive game modeled by the former Spain coach, dominated the confrontations against Lyon, Marseille, Lens and even Monaco, conceding only one defeat, against Nice at the Parc des Princes on September 15.
