Statattack Week 30: Record-breaking champions!
Week 30 was dominated by Paris Saint-Germain's claiming a fourth-straight Ligue 1 title with a 9-0 hammering of Troyes at the Stade de l'Aube as Zlatan Ibrahimovic etched his mark on French football that much deeper.
By notching the biggest-ever away win in Ligue 1 history (ESTAC 0-9 PSG), Paris Saint-Germain claimed their fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title. Now with six French top-flight championships to their name, the capital club join Stade de Reims and FC Girondins de Bordeaux on the list of all-time Ligue 1 title winners.
Paris Saint-Germain are the first team to have scored 70 or more goals in three consecutive Ligue 1 seasons since FC Nantes achieved the feat in seasons 1978-79 (85 goals), 1979-80 (76 goals) and 1980-81 (74 goals). The win was the first time any Ligue 1 team had scored nine goals in a single match since AS Monaco's 9-0 thrashing of FC Girondins de Bordeaux on January 18, 1986.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (four goals) and Edinson Cavani (two goals) are the first pair of players to score a quadruple and a double in a single Ligue 1 match since Matt Moussilou (four goals) and Philippe Brunel (two goals) did so as LOSC beat Istres 8-0 on April 2, 2005.
The best performances
86%: FC Nantes' Argentine striker Emiliano Sala, who scored a double in the 2-0 win over Angers SCO, has been directly involved in six if his side's last seven goals at home in Ligue 1 (four goals, two assists).
19: Since November 1, 1966, AS Monaco have scored at least one goal in every one of their 19 Ligue 1 clashes with Stade De Reims.
4: Toulouse FC, big winners over Garonne derby rivals Bordeaux at the weekend (4-0), hadn't won a Ligue 1 match by a four-goal margin since they hammered Sochaux 5-1 on November 30, 2013.
9: Nantes' win over Angers marked the first time since season 2004-05 that Les Canaris have strung together an unbeaten run of nine matches at home (nine matches between December 19, 2004 and April 23, 2005).
6: Stade de Reims' Nicolas de Préville, who set up Gaëtan Charbonnier for their side's first goal in the 2-2 draw with Monaco, has provided six assists in his last seven Ligue 1 appearances.
71%: EA Guingamp's Sloan Privat, who scored the second goal in their 2-0 victory over Saint-Etienne, has scored five of his seven Ligue 1 goals in the first halves of matches this season.
3: Stade Rennais FC, who fought back brilliantly to draw 2-2 at home to Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday night, are the only side to have overcome a two-goal deficit on three occasions this season (a win in Week 21, draws in Week 20 and Week 30).
Not only did Sunday see Zlatan Ibrahimovic bag his first four-goal haul in Ligue 1, but it was also the occasion for the giant Swede to hit the 100-goal mark in France's top flight (102 goals).
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has proven decisive on 38 occasions this season in Ligue 1 (27 goals, 11 assists) - his personal best in a single season since arriving in France's top flight. In fact, Ibrahimovic's prolific season scoring goals and setting them up has seen him play a role in almost half - 49% - of Paris Saint-Germain's 77 Ligue 1 goals in the current campaign.
With 27 Ligue 1 goals to his name, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is currently on the top rung of strikers across Europe's top five leagues, with only Gonazalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo boasting as many goals in domestic league competition.
