Paris Saint-Germain did its part. Serious and efficient, the Parisians won on the pitch of FC Lorient (4-1), Wednesday April 24, thanks to an offensive festival from Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé. But the title of champion of France did not come as a bonus to this result, since Monaco later dominated Lille (1-0), preventing the Parisians from mathematically conquering the 12th title in their history.

This is the current rate. After its success in Barcelona (4-1) and against Olympique Lyonnais (4-1), PSG won for a third time in a row by the same score. Yet shaken at the start of the match by the willing and ambitious Lorient residents, Luis Enrique’s men extinguished the Moustoir in three minutes, first thanks to a classy action from Ousmane Dembélé (19th), then by Kylian Mbappé (22nd) at the reception of a recessed center. A lesson in realism given by the two attackers of the France team, who took advantage of the overly generous spaces offered by the Breton defense.

Mbappé-Dembélé, a fantastic duo

These are the same men who killed the match in the second half: Kylian Mbappé, author of a sublime little bridge over Nathaniel Adjei, served his compatriot (60th), before signing his own double (90th). The reduction of the gap by Mohamed Bamba (73rd) rewards Lorient’s desire which has never wavered, but does not earn them any points in the race to maintain. The Lorientais remain in the red zone, seventeenth.

With a reduced schedule in order to best prepare for the crucial double confrontation against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semi-finals (May 1 and 7), PSG could well formalize its championship title on Saturday evening, at home against Le Havre. to best prepare for the deadline.
