Unlike Strasbourg, PSG are champions of France after a draw in Strasbourg thanks to a goal by Leo Messi.
Shock of extremes in La Meinau this Saturday night. Located in 15th place, RC Strasbourg, with 6 points advantage over relegation, sought to stay permanently in the elite. Opposite Paris-SG, who flaunt at the top of Ligue 1. Leader for very long weeks, the Parisian club only needed a draw to secure their 11th league title. But these diametrically opposed trajectories did not necessarily presage what was about to happen in the meadow, with the first Paris goal alert in a quarter of an hour of play.

Wanting to play towards Donnarumma, young Bitshiabu didn’t press the pass hard enough and Diallo intervened. He overflowed the Paris keeper from the right before knocking the ball over. Despite this, Ramos folded and cleared before the cage.
PSG had more ball possession (70% possession) but hit a solid block from Strasbourg. The Alsatians were ready to counterattack at the slightest ball recovered. Diallo also hit the post shortly before the break with a very nice straight shot from the right foot. But it was Paris that opened the scoring in the game hour. Mbappé was eccentric to the left of the surface. He provoked the ball at his feet and found Messi at the heart of the Strasbourg defence, who tricked Sels with a cross with his left foot. 1-0.
But the former Parisian was about to equalise. Served at just the right angle to the surface, Gameiro was unchallenged and played an axis to recover Sanson’s right foot. Donnarumma moved back from the right but Gameiro followed and finished in two stages despite the presence of Danilo Pereira. Nothing was to be won in this part, everyone is happy: Paris is the champion and Strasbourg is held.
