Lens and PSG were held to a 1-1 draw in Ligue-1


The full-time whistle goes, and PSG is Ligue 1 champions again as they drew against Lens.

They’ve secured the title that they surprisingly lost to Lille last season, with four games still to play.

PSG did find a breakthrough in the second half through the magic of Messi and arguably should have been out of sight before Jean popped up two minutes from time to equalise for 10-man Lens.

Another point aids the visitors in their European push, but it’s all PSG needed to confirm their eighth title in ten Ligue 1 seasons.

Starting lineup:

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN (3-4-3): Keylor Navas; Marquinhos, Sergio Ramos, Presnel Kimpembe; Achraf Hakimi, Marco Verratti, Idrissa Gueye, Nuno Mendes; Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe.

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN SUBS: Gianluigi Donnarumma, Angel di Maria, Juan Bernat, Danilo Pereira, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ander Herrera, Thilo Kehrer, Eric Ebimbe, Xavi Simons.

LENS (3-4-3): Jean-Louis Leca; Jonathan Gradit, Kevin Danso, Christopher Wooh; Jonathan Clauss, Cheick Doucoure, Seko Fofana, Przemyslaw Frankowski; Florian Sotoca, David Pereira Da Costa, Arnaud Kalimuengo Muinga.

LENS SUBS: Wuilker Farinez, Deiver Machado, Ignatius Ganago, Gael Kakuta, Yannick Cahuzac, Massadio Haidara, Wesley Said, Corentin Jean, Ibrahima Balde.


PSG finally broke the deadlock, and it’s courtesy of the best player in the world!! Neymar plays it across to Messi in space, and he curls an absolute beauty of an effort into the top corner from the edge of the box to put PSG 1-0 up! Lens has to score twice now. Otherwise, the Ligue 1 title is PSG’s!

Lens equalise!!!!!! The men in yellow flood forward after turning over possession in midfield, and Machado’s low cross from the left evades all but his fellow substitute Jean, who pops up beyond the far post to tap the ball into an empty net!!! Of course, 1-1 won’t delay PSG’s confirmation of the title, but it’s the least that Lens deserve!!!

So, what’s next?

Marseille cannot catch PSG now, and the Ligue 1 title is theirs once again. Lens’ European race is far from over, though, and that point moves them to level with Nice in sixth. Another win would take them up to third. However, the three sides above them now all have a game in hand.
