The “der” of Paris SG against Metz (5-0) was completely eclipsed by the extension until 2025 of star striker Kylian Mbappé (read above).
The N.7 of the Rouge et Bleu, eager for records, has become the first player to complete an L1 season as top scorer (28) and best passer (17). And as the party was total, Neymar scored his 100and but with Paris and Angel Di Maria, his last, in tears to conclude seven years in the French capital.
Greens still alive
At the Vélodrome, OM supporters experienced a magical evening: a 4-0 card against Strasbourg and an equalizer in added time for Lens against Monaco (2-2), synonymous with second place and direct qualification for the next Champions League.
Marseille recovered the jump seat that the Monegasques had blown from them last weekend after an incredible scenario. As leading roles: Gerson (double), Under and Bakambu on the Olympian side, without forgetting Ganago, RC Lens scorer in the 96and minute.
The Olympians will try next year to do better than extras in C1 where, for their last appearance in 2020/21, they finished last in the group.
Rennes sweated profusely on Saturday evening but their draw at Lille (2-2) was enough to make them happy. The Bretons end the 2020/21 fiscal year in fourth place, with the same number of points as Nice but a much higher goal difference.
OGC Nice will have to settle for the Europa League Conference next season, a disappointing consolation prize for a team that was still in 2nd place in the Championship at the start of March.
AS Saint-Etienne retains a chance to stay in Ligue 1 after its miracle-shaped draw in Nantes (1-1), where Hamouma endorsed superhero habits in the last quarter of an hour. In a play-off position, the Greens will face Auxerre, winner of the Ligue 2 play-offs.
