Paris Saint Germain have won the Ligue 1 title for the second successive season after second-place Lille failed to beat Toulouse.
PSG’s closest challengers failed to follow up on the 5-1 hammering they dished out when the two sides met last Sunday on what had been all set up to be a title celebration.
Instead, the team crumbled to their biggest defeat since their Qatari owners took over the club, and were beaten again away at Nantes on Wednesday.
But the celebrations were only delayed a matter of days, as Lille’s goalless draw at Toulouse meant they are now unable to catch their illustrious rivals, and the title has returned to the capital.
The team had only dropped nine points all season prior to last Sunday’s collapse at Lille, but with the finishing line in sight they were beaten twice in a matter of days to open up the faintest of possibilities that their title success could be in jeopardy.
