PSG needed just one point from the last two games to win the French Ligue 1 title. Messi-Mbappe earned the coveted points with a draw against Strasbourg on Saturday night. With that, Christopher Gaultier’s disciples have secured a record 11th league title.
PSG have won the league title nine times in the last 11 seasons since Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) took ownership of PSG. PSG had won only two Ligue 1 titles before, in 1986 and 1994.
Strasbourg had the lead in possession of the ball in the match held at the Stade de la Meniawe stadium. But PSG footballers were ahead of the attack. On this day, the football players of Strasbourg kept the ball under themselves for 66 percent of the entire match. And took two shots along the opponent’s goal.
On the other hand, PSG, who are behind in possession of the ball, managed to keep the ball under their control for 34 percent of the entire match. However, the host footballers had a lot of edge in the attack. A total of five shots were taken on the opponent’s goal.
At the beginning of the match, the game between the two teams was very slow. The number of attacks in the first half did not result in goals. As a result, the two teams went into the break with a scoreless margin.
PSG attacked at the beginning of the second half. PSG got the desired goal in the 59th minute of the match. The goal for the team was scored by the Argentinian star of PSG, Lionel Messi. The goal for PSG was Messi’s 496th league goal. Ronaldo was the top scorer in Europe’s top 5 leagues. Messi broke his record this time.
However, PSG could not hold the lead for long. The second goal of the match came 20 minutes after the first goal. Strasbourg’s Kevin Gameiro scored the team’s lone goal. If there are no more goals in the rest of the period, PSG’s title is guaranteed with a 1-1 draw.
