Lille Secure Ligue 1 Title

Lille last night secured their first Ligue 1 title in 56 years after a 2-2 draw away at PSG.

Lille got off to a great start when Ludovic Obraniak opened the scoring in the 4th minute, however PSG pegged them back just before half-time thanks to a goal from Guillaume Hoarau.

Lille’s task was made a little easier at the start of the second half when PSG goalscorer Hoarau was sent off. With 30 minutes remaining Lille took the lead after a goal from the leagues top goalscorer Moussa Sow.

However PSG who are still fighting for a place in next seasons Champions League fought back and levelled the game in the 73rd minute thanks to a goal from Mathieu Bodmer.

The game finished 2-2 which was enough to keep Lille six points clear of Marseille with just one game remaining. Marseile could only manage a 2-2 draw away at Valenciennes.

Lyon had the opportunity to seal 3rd place and a place in next seasons Champions League but only managed a goal-less draw at home to Caen which means that Lyon and PSG will fight it out on the last weekend of the season to claim a spot in Europe.
