Saturday’s draw at Parc des Princes ensured the title for Les Parisiens, with Messi’s goal in the 68th minute being equalised by Corentin Jean twenty minutes later.

The league title is Mauricio Pochettino’s first in his coaching career but uncertainty remains about his future at the club following the manner of their round-of-16 exit to Real Madrid in the Champions League.

PSG wrap up the title having lost four times, and scoring 76 goals, the most in the division this season, while only conceding 31, giving them the second best defensive record.

Eight of PSG’s league championships have come in the last decade, with Lille in 2021 and Monaco in 2018 interrupting their unrivalled run of success.
