Argentine superstar Lionel Messi scored another record breaking goal as Paris Saint Germain won their 11th Ligue 1 title with a draw against Strasbourg.
Messi surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo for the most goals scored in Europe’s top five leagues, bettering Ronaldo’s previous record of 495 goals after linking up with Kylian Mbappe for a fine finish.
Kevin Gameiro equalized for Strasbourg towards the end of the game, with the rest of the game played out very calmly as both sides were content to take a point home.
Cristophe Galtier’s side, with their superior goal difference have practically confirmed back to back titles for PSG and Strasbourg only needed one point to secure safety from relegation.
For PSG, this season has been a tale of two halves. Having remained unbeaten in the previous year, they faced a slump in form, losing six games in the latter part of the season.
Adding to the uncertainty is Messi’s imminent departure from the Parc des Princes. With his contract set to expire, rumours have circulated regarding his future destination. Speculations suggest a fairy-tale return to Barcelona, his beloved former club, while a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia to reignite his rivalry with Ronaldo still remains on the cards.
With his failure to deliver the elusive Champions League crown, PSG boss Galtier’s future also remains in doubt even after helping PSG to their ninth title in the past 11 years.
With this Ligue 1 triumph, PSG now move past Saint Etienne and Marseille’s previous record of 10 French titles to become the most decorated club in France.
