PSG To Be Crowned Ligue 1 Champions

Paris Saint-Germain will be announced as Ligue 1 champions with the league's current standings set to be ruled as final.

The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) have made the decision according to Joel Domenighett, following France's decision to ban all sporting events until September.

Thomas Tuchel's side were 12 points clear of second place Marseille with 11 games left to play.

It will be the Parisian's ninth Ligue 1 title and third in a row.

Nimes, Amiens and Toulouse are currently in the bottom three with relegation to be decided at a later date.

Qualification for next season's Champions League and Europa League is also set to be decided at a later date.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced the country's 'deconfinement' plan beyond the current lockdown date of May 11 earlier this week.

There will be no sporting events, even behind closed doors, before August, which has resulted in the LFP's decision.

Speaking at a press conference, Philippe said: "The big sporting affairs cannot occur before September. The 2019/20 football season cannot return."

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte made the decision to ban professional football in the country until September due to the current worldwide outbreak.

Both Ajax and AZ Alkmaar were level on points at the top of the table, but neither side will be crowned champions.

Eyes will likely now turn to the Premier League who are yet to decide on a clear path for football's return.

Liverpool are currently 22 points clear at the top of the table and are two points away from the title.
