Paris Saint-Germain crowned champions of France's Ligue 1 for eighth time

Anne-Christine Poujoulat, AFP | Paris Saint-Germain were crowned champions of France's Ligue 1 for the eighth time.

Paris Saint-Germain clinched the French league title without kicking a ball as second-place Lille could only draw 0-0 at Toulouse on Sunday.


Lille had to win to have any chance of catching PSG, but PSG are now 16 points ahead of their only rival with five matches left after this weekend.

After failing to clinch the title in the past three matches, drawing one and losing two, PSG can celebrate the eighth title in their history ahead of their home game against Monaco later Sunday.

It is PSG's sixth title in the last seven seasons, with only Monaco in 2017 breaking PSG's dominance.
