Against Strasbourg, they added another draw to their season’s tally. PSG were cruising for their 28th win after Lionel Messi gave them the lead. Strasbourg fought hard and scored to equaliser. A point guaranteed them safety in Ligue 1.
Marquinhos has now won eight league titles with the club. He is officially the club captain. Kylian Mbappe added a sixth league title to his name. This was his fifth league title with PSG. Neymar has also completed a fifer with the club.
