FilGoal | News | The miracle is complete .. Lille wins the French League and Saint Germain is prevented from equalizing the record


Lille won the 2020/2021 French League title, by defeating host Angers, with two goals to one at the Stadeux Raymond Kouba.

Paris Saint-Germain lost the title he won in the past three seasons, and settled for second place despite winning at the same time over Brest with a clean double.

Lille raised its score to 83 points in the lead, surpassing one point for Paris Saint-Germain, who settled for second place.

Lille won the fourth title in its history, and the first since the 2010/2011 season, which was achieved under the leadership of Rudi Garcia in the presence of Eden Hazard, Adel Rami, Moussa Sue, Gervinho and others.

This title is only the second for Lille in the French league in the last 67 years.

Coach Christophe Gaultier won his second title in his career, having previously won the French League Cup with Saint-Etienne.

Paris Saint-Germain missed the opportunity to equal the record number of titles registered with Saint-Etienne 40 years ago, with 10 titles.

Saint-Germain lost the title only for the third time under the leadership of Nasser Al-Khelaifi after 2012 to Montpellier 2017 to Monaco.

Thus, Paris Saint-Germain sufficed with the French Super Cup title under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel, and the French Cup under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino, while leaving the Champions League from the semi-finals.

Paris Saint-Germain was the leader of the French League before it suddenly fell in the Princes’ Park in front of Lille with a clean goal on April 3, a match that was crucial in directing the title towards Lille.

Shot of the week in the absence of excitement

All the last ten matches of the last round were held at the same time, with not all the relegation seats and European participations decided.

The excitement was not very much present, especially when Lail was led very early in the tenth minute by Jonathan David after the beautiful pass by Renato Sanchez of Portugal.

This goal put pressure on Saint-Germain, which may have been reflected in the way Neymar Jr took a penalty kick in the 18th minute.

The Brazilian player was surprised by the strange behavior of Gauthier Larsonor, who left his left corner completely open to tempt Neymar to shoot it.

Neymar, for his part, responded with stranger behavior and progressed very slowly, reaching the point of boredom, to implement the penalty kick, to hit the ground outside the goal in the end and wasted the opportunity to advance on the capitalists.

This wasting wasn’t a big deal, because Saint-Germain would advance in the 37th minute and with another strange shot as well.

Angel Di Maria took a corner kick, colliding with the player standing in front of him like a human wall, and bouncing directly into the goal, and the Argentine winger scored an Olympic goal for the second time in his career with Saint-Germain.

While Saint Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi continued reading his phone throughout the first half, awaiting a miracle from the other court, a new shock came in the last second of the first session with a penalty kick for Lille.

Veteran Turkish Linbury, Burak Yilmaz, scores it successfully, with a two-goal lead for his team upon entering the locker room.

In the second half, Brest was more daring against Paris Saint-Germain and threatened the goal of Keylor Navas strongly, before Kylian Mbappe appeared and killed the match with a second goal in the 71st minute, after a pass by Neymar Jr.

As for the window of Lille, which remained in the gaze of Saint Germain, it was only shaken in the second minute of stoppage time with Angelo Volgini’s header.

A goal that was too late to prevent the loud partying of the Lille players seconds later when the referee blew the final whistle announcing their leadership in France.


And Olympique Lyon were unable to qualify for the Champions League next season, by a shocking defeat at home to Nice, by three goals to two.

Lyon led by Carl Tocco Ecambi before Kasper Dulberg equalized for Nice.

But Icambi added a second goal, and Hussam Awar followed him with a third, but video technology intervened to cancel the last.

In the second half, the match turned upside down, and Nice scored twice by Hassan Camara and William Saliba in the 50th and 57th minutes.

Lyon freezes at 76 points in fourth place and is content with reaching the European League.

Meanwhile, the third Champions League card was transferred to Monaco, who faltered in a 0-0 draw at Lance.

And Monaco entered the round, a mathematical opponent for the league title, although it needed a difficult miracle to make up for a huge goal difference.

Monaco almost lost the Champions League seat with a draw, but Lyon offered him a service and fell in front of Nice, to keep Niko Kovac’s squad in third place with 78 points, two points behind Lyon.

Despite losing to Metz in the seventh minute of stoppage time, Olympique Marseille’s qualification to the European League was not affected by its sixth place with 59 points.

While Rennes booked his seat in the European Conference League by finishing seventh with 58 points, after defeating Nimes with two unanswered goals.

Nantes to the supplement

Nantes will have to play the play-offs to avoid relegation, after his defeat to Montpellier by two goals to one.

Nantes ranks 18th with 40 points, one point behind Brest, who secured survival despite his defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, taking advantage of the fall of Nantes.

The duo, Dijon and Neem, had been confirmed relegated to the second division earlier in the competition.

Mbappe is the champion of the season

Mbappe won the French League’s top scorer award for the third consecutive season with 27 goals, the last of which was against Brest in the last round.

Mbappe comfortably beat Memphis Depay, the 20-goal star of Lyon, and Wissam Ben Yedder, the Monaco striker, who also scored 20.

Behind them are 4 players who scored 16 goals, they are: Burak Yilmaz, the star of Lille, Gaetan Laborde of Montpellier, Monaco striker Kevin Voland, and Ludovic Agorky of Strasbourg.

Depay topped the list of the most goal-making players, with 12 assists.

He was followed by Dimitri Payet, the Marseille playmaker, and Zinedine Ferhat, the NEM player, with 10 assists.
