Paris Saint-Germain sealed the third Ligue 1 title in their 42-year history thanks to a 1-0 victory over Lyon on Sunday.

Jeremy Menez's second-half strike, after fantastic work from Thiago Motta, sealed the three points PSG needed to end the challenge of Marseille and give them their first league title since 1994.

Having won the ball in midfield, Motta exchanged passes with Zlatan Ibrahimovic before finding Menez on the left-hand side of the penalty area. The forward composed himself and rifled a low shot past Anthony Lopes for his fifth league goal of the season.

The win moves Carlo Ancelotti's side seven points clear at the top of the table with only two games remaining, ensuring the first trophy in the reign of the Qatar Investment Authority, which bought full control of the club in 2012.
