1. The Ligue 1 title is PSG's to lose

Last weekend's game sealed the historic 11th Ligue 1 title for PSG.

The sooner you accept it (if you're a PSG hater), the better. It is what it is, and it won't change with just seven more games left to play and none of them featuring a stout opponent in Paris' way toward lifting the chip.

Paris Saint-Germain will eventually become the most-laureated league-winning team in France overtaking AS Saint-Etienne and breaking their current 10-title tie. Before the arrival of QSI, mind you, PSG had won all two Ligue 1 titles (1986, 1994).

Even in a rather mediocre season by the standards set by PSG in the last decade and since they retook the throne for the first time back in 2013, the Ligue 1 just feels like an afterthought and a given for Paris to win yearly.

Yes, they have lost it a few times (2017, 2021) but those were fluky developments on an über-dominant decade of victories more than anything else. The French top-flight division, simply put, is a tiny competition for a club with PSG's resources and it shows each and every year.

Congratulations to the team, the club, the president, the staff, and Christophe Galtier, of course. He will ride this wave for as long as he can, he will bag some money when PSG fire him next summer before his contract run out due to early termination, and he will have won his second Ligue 1 title in three seasons after lifting it in the 2021 season while at Nice. Not bad for a subpar manager.
