Paris Saint-Germain's (PSG) title-winning Ligue 1 campaign ended with a 3-1 defeat at Reims, but they were still able to make history at Stade Auguste-Delaune.

Kylian Mbappe's scrappy 59th-minute effort meant PSG became the first team to score in all of their 38 matches in France's top flight.

Thomas Tuchel's achieved the feat despite a late-season wobble that saw them win just three of their last nine top-flight fixtures.

Mbappe's strike saw the World Cup winner comfortably end 2018-19 as Ligue 1's top scorer, earning the honour for the first time in his career with 33 goals.
