Messi and Mbappe contribute to PSG’s achievement of the Ligue 1 championship, marking the second consecutive win for the esteemed Argentine legend before his departure from the PSG club.

The dynamic pair in the forward line played a pivotal role in PSG’s 2-1 victory over Auxerre in the 36th round of Ligue 1.

Kylian Mbappe’s exceptional performance with two goals helped Paris Saint-Germain secure a crucial 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened AJ Auxerre, effectively solidifying their hold on the Ligue 1 title.

Mbappe’s remarkable brace came within a span of three minutes early in the game, propelling the visitors to a comfortable two-goal lead within the opening 10 minutes.

Despite a spirited effort from Auxerre, who fought back with Lassine Sinayoko’s goal shortly after halftime, Christophe Galtier’s team managed to withstand the late pressure from the hosts. Mbappe even thought he had secured a hat-trick with a composed finish late in the match, but unfortunately, it was disallowed by VAR due to an offside.

With this result, PSG now sits six points ahead of second-placed RC Lens, with only two games left in the season. Considering their significantly superior goal difference (+50 compared to +34), it is highly probable that they will successfully retain their domestic championship title.

Following his initial goal, the French player swiftly extended the lead for the visiting team with his second goal in a span of three minutes.

The French giants took a significant stride towards the championship at the Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps, and they will officially secure the title if they manage to avoid defeat in their upcoming match against Racing Strasbourg next Saturday.

Auxerre, currently positioned 16th in the league with 34 points, will travel to Toulouse for their penultimate match.

“We eased off a bit after the two goals, but ultimately, we have a firm grip on the trophy,” said PSG captain Marquinhos, acknowledging that the team’s performance was not particularly impressive.

“We have achieved a lot this season, but we were aware that dropping points could complicate things. We won’t celebrate the title tonight, but we will certainly celebrate this victory.”

Mbappe broke the tie after six minutes with a well-placed right-footed shot into the top corner, swiftly followed by doubling their score two minutes later with a powerful 20-yard strike assisted by Lionel Messi.

With this goal, Mbappe now leads the Ligue 1 scoring charts, having netted 28 times this season, two more than Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette.

Auxerre, however, proved to be a resilient opponent, as Rayan Raveloson’s half-volley rattled against the crossbar, and Gianluigi Donnarumma made an outstanding save just before halftime, denying former Nottingham Forest forward Nuno da Costa.

The hosts managed to narrow the gap six minutes into the second half when Sinayoko found the back of the net with a low angled shot, scoring his very first Ligue 1 goal.

PSG faced difficulties in midfield and owed their goalkeeper Donnarumma for preventing an equalizer that would have been well-deserved by Auxerre.

Such an outcome would have also given some faint hope in the title race to Lens, who overcame a shaky start to defeat Lorient 3-1 and extend their lead to five points over third-placed Marseille, edging closer to automatic qualification for the Champions League group stage.

Florian Sotoca, Adrien Thomasson, and Seko Fofana scored for Lens after Romain Faivre’s opener for Lorient.

In another match, sixth-placed Stade Rennais triumphed over already-relegated AC Ajaccio with a resounding 5-0 victory. AC Ajaccio will face Lens in their next Saturday’s match. Stade Rennais currently trail fourth-placed Monaco by three points and are one point behind fifth-placed Lille.

Monaco suffered a 3-1 defeat against Lyon on Friday. Stade Brestois ensured their safety from relegation with a 2-1 home victory against Clermont.

The outcome places PSG on the verge of clinching the title, while Auxerre finds themselves just one point above the relegation zone.
