It had to be the first! By lifting the 2019-20 title, Paris Saint-Germain have now been French champions nine times (1986, 1994, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019), and are now just one shy of the all-time record, currently held by Saint-Étienne.

The Parisians bagged a massive 75 league goals to top the division's scoring charts. There were a league-high 99 goals in the team's games and they are the only side not to record a goalless draw. The team also hit the woodwork 18 times, another league high.

89.9

Paris are the team that attempted (17825) and completed (16029) the most passes in Ligue 1 last season, despite having played a game fewer than most of their rivals. That gives them a league-best pass completion ratio of 89.9%. Marco Verratti remains the French top-flight's passmaster having attempted (1710) and completed (1581) the most passes in Ligue 1 last season.

The team was not the club's only table-topper! For the second successive season, Kylian Mbappé finished as the league's top scorer (18). He's the first French player to achieve the feat back-to-back since Stéphane Guivarc’h (1996-97 & 1997-98). Angel Di Maria finished atop the assists chart (14) for the second time in his L1 career (2015-2016).
