    Soccer-Lille claim Ligue 1 title to break PSG's dominance

    Lille clinched their first Ligue 1 title since 2011 as they beat Angers 2-1 away on Sunday, becoming only the second club since 2013 to break Paris St Germain's dominance. A goal by Jonathan David and a Burak Yilmaz penalty put Christophe Galtier's side on 83 points, one ahead of defending champions PSG, who had won seven of the eight previous titles and snatched a 2-0 win at Stade Brest. "It was a long, tough day, we were under a lot of pressure and beating PSG on the last day is outstanding," said Galtier, who could be leaving the club after four seasons in charge following a change of president during the season.

    Lille beat PSG and Monaco to first Ligue 1 title in 10 years on final day after win at Angers

    Christophe Galtier’s side headed into Sunday evening’s last round of 2020/21 fixtures holding a one-point lead over Paris Saint-Germain at the summit and knowing that a win away at Angers would see them claim only a fourth French top-flight title. Angelo Fulgini did reduce the deficit for Angers in second-half stoppage time, but Lille - who finished fourth last season - held on to claim a crucial 2-1 victory and complete a remarkable story. Rivals PSG needed to win at relegation-threatened Brest and hope that Lille did not beat Angers, though a 2-0 win for Mauricio Pochettino’s men sealed thanks to Kylian Mbappe - crowned Ligue 1 player of the year in addition to winning the Golden Boot - and a Romain Faivre own goal was ultimately in vain.
