Paris Saint-Germain won the French Ligue 1 after registering their sixth draw of the tournament against the seventh-placed Lens. The match ended in a 1-1 draw where PSG’s goal was scored by the seven-time Ballon D’or winner Lionel Messi. The Argentinian superstar gave the Les Parisiens a 1-0 lead in the 68th minute.
Kylian Mbappe dribbled the ball in a crowd around the right-wing and then passed it to Neymar Jr, who carried it towards the centre. Soon the Brazilian spotted an open Leo Messi, who ran in from the other flank and smashed the ball from outside the box into the left top corner.
PSG held on to the lead till the 88th minute when Lens’ Corentin Jean equalised the score 1-1 sparking a late comeback for the Les Sang Et Or. But soon the match ended with the same score as Les Rouge-et-Bleu claimed their tenth league title.
