PSG wins Ligue 1 Title

What led PSG to win Ligue 1 title?

Following Monaco’s 3-2 loss to Lyon on Sunday, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) emerged victorious in the French league (Ligue 1) during Kylian Mbappé’s final season at the club.

PSG Wins Record-Tying 12th Ligue 1 Title

With three games remaining, PSG leads second-place Monaco by an insurmountable 12-point margin. PSG’s victory in Ligue 1 is their third straight and their record-tying 12th overall.

Mbappé, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has participated in six of them. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are anticipated to sign him this summer.

With just one loss in their first 31 games, PSG have had one of the most dominant seasons in league history under head coach Luis Enrique’s tenure.

PSG drew 3-3 at Le Havre on Saturday when they had the opportunity to win the title a day earlier.

With their matchup against Lyon in the French Cup final on May 25 and their first leg of the Champions League semifinals against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, PSG are headed for a potentially historic treble.

3 Reasons Why PSG Won the Ligue 1 Title This Season

  1. Consistent Dominance: PSG demonstrated remarkable consistency throughout the season, losing only one league match, against Nice in September. This consistency allowed them to maintain a strong position at the top of the table once they took the lead after matchday 12, effectively securing the title.
  2. Tactical Adaptability: Under coach Luis Enrique, PSG showcased tactical flexibility, enabling them to overcome challenges and secure crucial points when needed. Despite a slow start to the campaign, the team evolved and maintained a winning momentum, especially evident in their ability to salvage points from difficult situations, such as the late equalizer against Le Havre.
  3. Star Performances: Key players like Kylian Mbappe played pivotal roles throughout the season, contributing significantly to PSG’s success. Mbappe’s exceptional goal-scoring form, netting 43 times in all competitions, propelled the team forward and helped secure crucial victories. Additionally, the team’s overall depth and talent ensured that they could maintain high-performance levels even in Mbappe’s last season at the club, setting the stage for a historic treble bid.

With the league title secured, PSG sets their sights on further glory, aiming to fulfill long-standing ambitions in European competitions.
