On Saturday (May 21), Ligue 1 saw its last day of action of the 2021-22 campaign. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), who had won the league title six games earlier, marked the occasion with an emphatic 5-0 win over Metz.
Second-placed Marseille ended their season with a 4-0 win over Strasbourg. Monaco finished third, meaning they will have to go through qualifiers to take part in the Champions League next season. Rennes and Nice occupied fourth and fifth places, respectively. Renne’s fourth-placed finish ensures Europa League football for them, while Nice will take part in the Europa Conference League qualifiers.
PSG’s triumph may not surprise anyone, but that should not take anything away from the brilliant performances we enjoyed throughout the 2021-22 Ligue 1 campaign.
Today, we will take a look at the league’s standout footballers in their respective positions. Here is the Ligue 1 team of the season:
