The Frenchman announced in a video that he was leaving the French giants where he is expected to move to Real Madrid. The news seems to have deflated his side and this coupled with their ouster from the Champions League saw them fall over the weekend. We take a look at the major talking points in the French top tier over the weekend.

Toulouse spoil PSG title party, Mbappé sendoff with a surprise win

Paris Saint-Germain were stunned in a 3-1 home defeat by Toulouse on Sunday, as the newly-crowned champions suffered only their second loss in Ligue 1 this season on a night in which they celebrated their title and bid farewell to star player Kylian Mbappé.

Luis Enrique’s side struggled for form after their midweek Champions League semifinal loss to Borussia Dortmund, falling again at home to remain on 70 points from 32 games, six clear of second-placed AS Monaco, with two games remaining.

Mbappe had given the hosts an 8th-minute lead but Toulouse equalised five minutes later through Thijs Dalling, who coolly slotted home from close range before Yann Gboho put the visitors ahead with a superb curling effort into the top right corner in the 68th minute. Frank Magri’s stoppage-time strike sealed the win for Toulouse, who are 10th in the standings with 43 points.

PSG visit Nice on Wednesday before their final league game against Metz and the French Cup final on May 25.

AS Monaco books Champions League spot

AS Monaco’s accomplished victory over Montpellier under the eyes of President Dmitry Rybolovlev, who celebrated the triumph with the team afterwards, not only guaranteed their direct passage into the Champions League group stages but also ensured the second spot on the table was theirs.

With the scores level at the interval, it wasn’t long until the visitors broke the deadlock through Ouattara for his first goal in AS Monaco colours. Wanting to seal all three points, Fofana’s 65th-minute strike duly did so to give Hutter’s men a two-goal cushion. The closing section of the clash saw both teams trade shots and produce a host of promising offensive moves, but it was ultimately Monaco who ran out with a 0-2 win to clinch Champions League group stage football for the first time since the 2018/19 season.

AS Monaco will now switch their attention to their final Ligue 1 game of the campaign against Nantes at the Stade Louis II, which will represent an ideal opportunity to celebrate their brilliant season in front of their home fans in style.

Lens ends Rennes European dream

Stade Rennais’ European football aspirations for next season ended after their 1-1 draw against RC Lens on Sunday night at Roazhon Park.

Julien Stéphan and his team recorded eight shots in the first half while Lens countered with six. Neither side found the back of the net and both teams went into the dressing room with the match scoreless. Shortly after coming out of halftime, Lens would break the deadlock thanks to a goal from Angelo Fulgini in the 48th minute as Les Sang et Or took a 1-0 lead early in the second half.

Franck Haise and his team held the lead for most of the second half and Rennes finally leveled in the second half. Les Rouge et Noirs recorded eight total shots in the second half, with Ibrahim Salah scoring in the 82nd minute to make the contest 1-1 as the match was heading toward a draw.

Neither side was able to secure a late goal to earn all three points, with the score ending 1-1. This result for Rennes (46 points) wasn’t ideal as they needed a win against Lens to keep their hopes of playing European football next season alive.
