PSG declared French league champion as season ends early

PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain has been declared champion of the French soccer league after the season ended early because of the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement from the league followed the French government’s decision on Tuesday to call off the soccer and rugby seasons in the country and end plans to resume. The top two divisions in French soccer had 10 rounds of matches left to play. PSG led second-place Marseille by 12 points and played one game less. Marseille qualified directly for the Champions League while third-place Rennes enters the qualifying rounds.
