Ligue 1: Late Kylian Mbappe strike leads to PSG title payout

After extending their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 10 points, we have now paid out on Paris Saint-Germain winning the French domestic title this season.

Late goals were the order of the weekend, with PSG grabbing an injury-time winner through Kylian Mbappe in their 2-1 victory at Brest.

The league leaders then saw their closest challengers Marseille slip up in an incredible end to their home clash with Strasbourg.

Marseille had Argentinian defender Leonardo Balerdi sent off after just 29 minutes, but looked to be on course for a key victory when they went 2-0 up with just 14 minutes remaining.

Two goals in two minutes from Jean-Eudes Aholou, in the 88th and 89th minutes, claimed a point for the visitors – who are only outside of the relegation zone on goal difference.

The two results left PSG firmly in the driving seat to claim back-to-back titles, with just 11 league games remaining for each team in the French top-flight.

PSG become part of pay-out quartet

Our PR man Steve Freeth confirmed the good news for those punters who had backed the Parisian giants to claim the Ligue 1 title before Friday 2nd September 2022.

Freeth said: "PSG have joined Dumbarton, Napoli and Burnley and become the fourth side that we have paid out on thanks to the League Winner Early Payout offer - with Messi & Co now 10 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

"PSG may have failed once again in their quest for Champions league glory, but we’re crowning them Ligue 1 title winners after Marseille dropped points against Strasbourg on Sunday night."

He went on to add: "With ante-post prices ranging from 1/8 to 1/25 up until 1st September, it’s fair to say that punters weren’t breaking the door down to back the serial French champions in singles.

"However, with Messi, Mbappe and Neymar as their forward line, it felt like they were in every multiple bet going."

Xavi’s men currently lead the Primera Liga by nine points, with major rivals Real Madrid in second and the two teams meet in El Clasico this Sunday evening.

Barca maintained their advantage thanks to a 1-0 win at Athletic Bilbao and victory over Real at the Nou Camp will extend their lead to 12 points, with the hosts available to back at 11/10.

Another team who could also trigger the early pay out are Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic, who currently hold a nine-point advantage.
