France announced earlier this week that the Ligue 1 2019/20 had been cancelled, and there was uncertainty as to whether Paris Saint-Germain will be awarded Champions.
The French club were cruising to the title, having built up a 12-point lead over Marseille and with a game-in-hand.
And now, according to L’Equipe journalist Domenighetti Joël, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have been awarded the title. That means they have won the Ligue 1 title for the third consecutive season.
The Ligue 1 table will be finalised based on a points-per-match ratio. Assuming the domestic cups are also annulled, that means joining PSG in the Champions League are Marseille and Stade Rennais.
Amiens and Toulouse are the two unlucky teams that will suffer relegation, while Lorient and Lens are the two sides that have won promotion to the league.
It’s certainly a controversial way of deciding things.
Lille were sitting in fourth and just one-point behind Rennes in third. That means they will miss out on a Champions League berth and all the financial rewards that come with it by the slimmest of margins.
Seven teams, including Lyon, Montpellier and Monaco, were within four points of Nice and may feel hard done by that they miss out on a European spot.
