Paris Saint-Germain’s narrow win over Auxerre on Sunday night saw the league leaders virtually wrap up the Ligue 1 title, with second-place Lens now six points and a large goal difference deficit behind with two matchdays remaining.
Christophe Galtier’s men will retain their Ligue 1 title, taking their overall tally to a record-breaking 11 wins to overtake Saint-Étienne in the all-time charts.
As pointed out by Stats du Foot, though, Kylian Mbappé and his teammates have already brought down another record – PSG have now been top of the league for 72 matchdays, almost two years. Barring any late collapse in their games against Strasbourg and then Clermont, the Parisians will also end the season as the first-ever team to top the table from the first week to the last.
Despite the team’s middling spring form – which, on top of the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, included league losses to Monaco, Rennes and Lyon – a dominant first half of the season will have been enough for Christophe Galtier to win the title in his first (and likely only) season in charge.
