Olympique de Marseille 3-1 Stade Rennais: OM Seal Ligue 1 Crown

After an 18 year wait, Olympique de Marseille are Ligue 1 champions, sealing their success with a victory over Stade Rennais at a packed Stade Velodrome.

An early Gabriel Heinze free kick should have settled the nerves, but alleged OM signing target Jimmy Briand levelled for the Bretons. The Provence side spent much of the second half knocking on the door, but it wasn’t until the closing stages when Mamadou Niang and Lucho Gonzalez struck in quick succession that the title was safe.

The story is too old to be commented.
