Ligue 1

French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, announced he won’t sanction any sporting events until September at the earliest. Therefore, Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 came to a sudden end.

The French Professional Football League (LFP) had suspended domestic action in early March. However, there were plans to resume football in June. It turned out, though, Philippe had other ideas.

The Prime Minister made it clear he wouldn’t allow football to resume, even behind closed doors.

Paris Saint-Germain, who held a commanding 12-point lead on top, took home a seventh league title in eight seasons. Marseille finished a respectable second in the standings. While Rennes and Lille rounded off the top-four spots.

Amiens and Toulouse, meanwhile, suffered relegation to Ligue 2.
