However, Mauricio Pochettino's men fell short on this occasion as Lille clinched the title by a single point.

Jonathan David fired Lille into the lead in the opening 10 minutes against Angers at the Raymond Kopa on Saturday.

Burak Yılmaz converted from the spot-kick ahead of half-time to put the newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions in control of the title race.

Angelo Fulgini pulled one back for Angers in injury time, but Lille held on to secure a crucial 2-1 win at the Raymond Kopa.

PSG, meanwhile, managed to secure a 2-0 victory over Brest at the Stade Francis-Le Ble.

Kylian Mbappe scored in the second half for PSG, but Pochettino's men ultimately conceded the Ligue 1 title to Lille.

Lille finished on 83 points in the table as they clinched their first Ligue 1 title since 2011.

PSG finished in second place on 82 points, while Monaco and Lyon finished third and fourth respectively in Ligue 1.
