French Ligue 1 2021-22 Stats

The 2021-22 Ligue 1 season has concluded with Paris Saint-Germain’s team of stars winning a record-equalling 10th French top-flight title, with eight of those coming in the last 10 years.

With 1,067 goals scored at an average of 2.81 per game, it was the highest total since 1982-83 (1,090 goals, 2.87 per game). Twenty-eight of those were scored by PSG’s Kylian Mbappé, who finished as the league top scorer for the fourth successive season – only Carlos Bianchi (four, with Reims and Paris) and Jean-Pierre Papin (five with Marseille) have finished as top goal scorer in more Ligue 1 campaigns.

Marseille secured a direct spot to the Champions League in the dying moments of matchday 38 at the expense of a strong Monaco side, who ended the season in third ahead of Rennes.

At the bottom, Saint-Étienne, Metz and Bordeaux all suffered relegation, as Ligue 1 lost some of France’s traditionally big clubs in 2021-22.
