PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain announced their fourth division title in the French Ligue 1 with two games to spare on Wednesday night.

In matchday 36, Parisian giants, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG's) closest opponents Monaco drew against Guingamp 1-1 so the leaders PSG, who are seven points ahead of the runners-up Monaco, clinched the 2013-14 French Ligue 1 title despite losing to Rennes 2-1 in their home ground Parc des Princes in Paris.

Last season's league winners PSG took the lead against Rennes with their Argentine wing forward Ezequiel Lavezzi scoring in the third minute of the game, 1-0. But Rennes made a comeback from 1-0 with firstly their Algerian-French attacking midfielder Foued Kadir scoring in the 23rd minute and 21-year-old French-Cameroonian wing forward Paul-Georges Ntep also scoring. In the second half, both sides could not change the score and the away team Rennes won the match 2-1.

PSG, who have won the French League Cup recently on April 19, are also victorious in the French Ligue 1 this season. In total, the Parisian club completed their 2013-14 football season with three domestic trophies. In addition to the French League Cup and French Ligue 1 title, they won 2013 Champions' Trophy (French Super Cup) at the beginning of the season on 3 August 2013.
