May 24, 2021 Lille win at Angers to seal first Ligue 1 title in 10 years!

Lille held their nerve to claim a first Ligue 1 title in 10 years with top goalscorer Burak Yilmaz on target in a 2-1 win at Angers which clinched the championship.

Christophe Galtier’s men knew victory on the road would ensure Paris Saint-Germain’s result away to Brest was insignificant and the leaders produced a professional display to secure a 24th league win, with Jonathan David’s 10th-minute opener a key settler for the away side.

One point was all that separated Lille – who endured a nervy finale after Angelo Fulgini’s stoppage-time goal – and the Champions League semi-finalists, who failed to win the title for the first time in four years.

While Mauricio Pochettino watched his players seal a 26th victory out of 38 in the division, 2-0 following Romain Faivre’s own-goal and a Kylian Mbappé strike, PSG had to settle for second after losing eight times throughout the domestic campaign.
