The statistics prove that Paris Saint-Germain are worthy champions, while OM's unbeaten run continues and Salomon Kalou keeps on banging in the goals.

Key Statistic for Week 36:

19: Paris Saint-Germain won the third league title in their history in Week 36, and their first in 19 years. All the statistics are there to prove that PSG have been the best side in Ligue 1 in 2012-13. They have scored the most goals (63) and conceded the fewest (21). They also have the best goal difference (+42) of any team in Ligue 1 since Olympique Lyonnais in 2005-06. Their attack has been led by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, scorer of 27 goals, while goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu has kept a remarkable 22 clean sheets.

Team Performances:

10: Olympique de Marseille extended their unbeaten run to ten games with a 2-1 win against Toulouse on Saturday. OM have won seven and drawn three of their matches during their run, which is their longest stretch without defeat since a 15-game sequence three years ago. Now certain to finish second, Marseille are assured of a place in the group stage of next season's Champions League.

Nkoulou, Gignac, André Ayew and Marseille march on

17: Evian-Thonon-Gaillard have scored 17 goals at home in 2013. Only AS Saint-Etienne (20) and FC Lorient (19) have been more prolific in front of their own fans. Evian beat Nice 4-0 on Sunday and have now scored four goals in three of their last five games at the Parc des Sports in Annecy.

24: Girondins de Bordeaux have struggled for goals for much of this season, but they managed an impressive 24 shots on goal, with 12 on target, in Saturday's 3-2 win at home to AS Nancy-Lorraine. It was the most of any team in Week 36 and the most in any game for Bordeaux this season. They had not managed such a high number of shots on goal in a single game since a 2-1 defeat at home to SM Caen in February 2011.

Individual Performances:

1st: Sochaux striker Sloan Privat bagged a brace for the first time this season in his side's 2-0 win away to Brest. Privat managed seven shots on goal in the game in Brittany, more than any other player across Ligue 1 in Week 36 and his best-ever tally in a single top-flight game.

Salomon Kalou takes the acclaim of his Lille teammates

5: Saber Khlifa became the first player to score from inside his own half in a Ligue 1 game in five years. The last player to achieve such a feat was David Hellebuyck for OGC Nice against Caen in May 2008. It is only the second time Khlifa has scored from outside the penalty box in Ligue 1.

1: Salomon Kalou has scored one goal every 100 minutes in Ligue 1 for LOSC Lille since the winter break, a better return than any other player in the division. Kalou has scored 11 goals in the last 13 matchdays. His brace against Stade de Reims was his third in six games.
