Thomas Tuchel's men squandered several earlier opportunities to retain the crown, failing to win any of their previous three matches as they stumbled towards the finish line.

League and Cup double still on

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.
