Paris Saint-Germain has been one of the most successful Ligue 1 clubs domestically in recent times. They have once again stamped their authority in France.
In August 2019, PSG won the first title of this season when they had beaten Rennes by 2-1 in the Trophee des Champions (French Super Cup) match.
The Coronavirus pandemic halted the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season in March. Ligue 1 decided to end the season and declared PSG as the winners on a points-per-game basis.
A week ago, PSG won the Coupe de France final against Saint-Etienne by Neymar’s solitary goal. But the win was overshadowed by Kylian Mbappe catastrophic injury followed by a mass brawl. The injury may now result in Mbappe missing the Champions League ‘Final Eight’ tournament in Lisbon from 12th August.
PSG has now won the Coupe de la Ligue on Saturday. They reigned supreme against Lyon at the Stade de France.

The Coupe de la Ligue final match was locked at 0-0 and went into extra time where Lyon was reduced to 10 men. But PSG failed to take advantage and the match went into the penalties. Keylor Navas saved Betrand Traore’s kick while Pablo Sarabia netted the decisive spot-kick as PSG completed their domestic quadruple win.
Sarabia told Canal+ Sport: “It was an especially difficult game. But it’s true that we won four titles this season. It was important to give a good impression and show good rhythm before the Champions League.”
“This win will give us confidence. There’s a great confidence in the team. Now we want to make sure we’re physically ready for the game against Atalanta.”
PSG will now take on Serie A side Atalanta, who has been in exciting form this season, in the Champions League quaterfinal on 12th August.
