  2. Paris Saint-Germain have been awarded the Ligue 1 title after it was announced the season would not resume because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    PSG were 12 points clear at the top of the table, with a game in hand, when French football was suspended indefinitely on 13th March and the French government has now cancelled the 2019-20 sporting season. French football's governing body had been hoping to resume the season on 17th June.
