Paris St-Germain were crowned French champions for the third consecutive season after a hard-fought away victory over Montpellier. PSG needed only a point to be certain of becoming only the fourth Ligue 1 club to win three consecutive titles. France midfielder Blaise Matuidi and Argentina forward Ezequiel Lavezzi gave the visitors a two-goal cushion. Montpellier forward Anthony Mounier pulled one back for the home side but Laurent Blanc’s men held on. Now PSG are aiming to become the first team to win a Ligue 1, French Cup and French League Cup treble. They lifted the Coupe de la Ligue with a 4-0 win against Bastia last month and face second-tier Auxerre in the Coupe de France final on 30 May.
