Lionel Messi scored his fourth Ligue 1 goal – and his 478th senior league goal

Paris St-Germain confirmed a record-equalling 10th French title with four games to spare despite being held by 10-man Lens at Parc des Princes.

Lionel Messi’s stunning curled strike looked set to seal victory in style for the hosts, who required only one point to clinch the league.


But despite Kevin Danso’s dismissal for a second booking, Corentin Jean equalised for a spirited Lens late on.

It is Mauricio Pochettino’s first league triumph as a manager.
