PSG is on the brink of winning their tenth league following a 3-0 victory against Angers

Paris Saint-Germain are on the brink of tying the record for the most French titles with a 3-0 win against Angers in Ligue 1 on Wednesday.

The triumph moved the capital club to 77 points, 15 points ahead of second-placed Olympique de Marseille, who defeated Nantes 3-2, with five games remaining.

If PSG avoids loss against RC Lens at the Parc des Princes on Saturday, they would equal St Etienne for the most championships with ten, which they won between 1957 and 1981.

Stade Rennais are third with 56 points following a 2-1 loss against Racing Strasbourg, who are currently fourth on goal difference.

Fifth-placed Monaco, who defeated Nice 1-0 at home, is also on 56 points.

The top two teams go straight to the Champions League group stage, while the third-placed team must compete in the third qualifying round.

Despite the absence of Lionel Messi and Marco Verratti due to injury, PSG were still a cut above at Angers.

On 28 minutes, Mbappe put them ahead with his 22nd league goal of the season, a low effort from just beyond the box that Anthony Mandrea could only touch with the tip of his hands.
