Lyon wrapped up their seventh straight French championship on Saturday with a 3-1 win at Auxerre while Paris St Germain saved their top flight status by winning 2-1 at Sochaux to relegate Lens.

Bordeaux placed second, four points adrift, after they could only draw 2-2 at Lens, sending their opponents down a decade after they won the title.

Also smiling along with PSG, who were reprieved at the last after appearing destined for the drop for much of the campaign, were Marseille, France's only side ever to lift the European Cup, as they bagged third place and with it a third qualifying round spot in the Champions League after edging Strasbourg 4-3.
