Paris Saint-Germain won the French Ligue 1 title for a sixth time in seven seasons on Sunday after second-placed Lille drew 0-0 away at Toulouse, leaving them 16 points behind leaders PSG with just five games remaining.
It is the club’s eighth Ligue 1 title in their history. Only Saint-Etienne and Olympique de Marseille have won France’s top flight on more occasions. PSG can make it a double in Tuchel’s maiden campaign at the helm by retaining the Coupe de France when they face Rennes at the Stade de France next weekend.
PSG now have eight French championships since their maiden victory in 1986 although they squandered three earlier chances to secure this season’s title by failing to beat Strasbourg and being beat by second-placed Lille and Nantes in the space of 10 days.
The Parisians host 2017 winners Monaco later Sunday with the world’s most expensive player in Neymar set to return from a foot injury.
