Lionel Messi scored another record-breaking goal as Paris St-Germain won an unprecedented 11th Ligue 1 title with a draw at Strasbourg.
Messi’s strike, a neat finish from Kylian Mbappe’s pass, was his 496th in Europe’s top five leagues – surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’s mark of 495.
It was his 32nd for PSG, and could be his last as he is expected to leave this summer.
Kevin Gameiro bundled in an equalizer but PSG only needed a point.
Full-time celebrations were muted by PSG’s superior goal difference over second-placed Lens which meant they had the title virtually safe last week.
The final minutes were played at a slow pace with both sides enjoying a point – Strasbourg safe from relegation today.
Christophe Galtier’s future remains in doubt despite helping PSG win their ninth title in 11 years.
He was in charge at the start of the season, leading Lille to the 2020-21 title, but their last 16 Champions League exit to Bayern Munich was a major blow.
PSG surpassed Marseille’s previous record of 10 French titles, three of which came before their rivals in the 1970s.
Messi’s goal in the title-sealing game ensured his time at PSG ended on a more positive note than expected at the start of May.
The former Barcelona player is suspended for two weeks after traveling to Saudi Arabia without PSG’s permission. The club increased security at his house after the fans chanted against him – and many did not expect him to play for PSG again after that ban.
