Paris Saint-Germain has secured the French football championship to the tenth time and thus closed to record champion AS St. Etienne. The team of coach Mauricio Pochettino is no longer displaced from the top of the table of Ligue 1 after the 1-1 (0: 0) in the home game on Saturday.
PSG has won the title in the league eight times since the 2012/13 season. Last year, Neymar and Co. had surprisingly left the championship to the OSC Lille, in 2016/17 the AS Monaco also broke the winning streak of the capital club.
For superstar Lionel Messi, who had changed from FC Barcelona to his last summer, it is the first title in the PSG jersey. PSG must continue to wait for the dream destination, the profit of the premier class. The star ensemble failed this year in the round of 16 on Real Madrid. In the French Cup was also within the round of the last 16 against OGC Nice.
The Argentinier Messi scored the leading goal (68th) for the Parisians in the Prince’s Park, which played outnumbered from the 57th minute. The former Bundesliga professional Kevin Danso had seen the yellow-red card among the guests. Nevertheless, Corentin Jean (88th) scored to compensate.
Thilo Kehrer sat at the hosts the entire season on the bank. National team colleague Julian Draxler was missing because of a knee injury. Four game days are still out.
