As parties break out across the French capital tonight in celebration of Paris St-Germain becoming champions again, it is time for us to disappear into the night.

But we will be back tomorrow when they could be another title bash - in Spain. Barcelona will regain the La Liga crown from Atletico Madrid by beating the defending champions at the Vicente Calderon.

That match, along with the rest of the penultimate Spanish top-flight fixtures, kicks off at 18:00 BST. Do. Not. Miss. Until then...au revoir!

While PSG celebrate with (presumably) magnums of champagne later, Evian will be drowning their sorrows with a bottle of something less extravagant. Mineral water perhaps. They have been swilled from the French top-flight, relegation confirmed by a 2-1 home defeat by St Etienne. Ex-Leeds United winger Max Gradel scored both goals for the visitors.

PSG ARE CHAMPIONS

PSG may have won their third Ligue 1 title in a row but it is only the fifth success in their 45-year history. That's only half of the number racked up by St Etienne...

PSG ARE CHAMPIONS

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

PSG only needed a point to clinch the title tonight - in the end they got all three. And it turns out that they would still have been crowned champions with a defeat in Montpellier. That's because nearest rivals Lyon failed to beat Bordeaux, drawing 1-1 at home.

PSG ARE CHAMPIONS

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

Laurent Blanc is beaming from ear to ear as he gallops on to the Stade de la Mosson pitch, which is engulfed by a smoky glaze after those celebratory flares were thrown by the away fans. The former France defender embraces his players one after the other, as the PSG staff gather beneath the stand housing their travelling supporters.

PSG ARE CHAMPIONS

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

The referee blows his full-time whistle - and that means PSG are crowned French champions once again. Party time!

The game is not quite over - and PSG are not quite the French champions. For a few seconds at least. But the away fans are already celebrating by flinging firecrackers on to the Stade de la Mosson pitch.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Almost the crowning glory. Montpellier can't clear following that previous counter attack and Javier Pastore pounces to rattle the left upright with a thumping half-volley.

INJURY TIME

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Three minutes of stoppage time - is that enough time for a third goal for the champions-elect? David Luiz hopes so. The PSG defender sprints forward to join a counter attack, but Montpellier scramble back to clear.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Still time for Montpellier to nab an equaliser. Probably not enough time for PSG to not win the title tonight. Home substitute Souleymane Camara tries to force in a low cross at the near post, but PSG skipper Thiago Silva nips in to block.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

PSG look to take the sting out of the game, taking their time over an attacking free-kick. Montpellier partially clear the set-piece, only as far as Lucas Moura who lashes a 20-yard shot past the right-hand post.

FINAL FIVE

The countdown is on for PSG fans. Five minutes until the Parisians are crowned French champions for the third successive season. That's unless Montpellier score twice and second-placed Lyon find a late winner against Bordeaux.

GREAT SAVE!

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

Montpellier have been thrusting forward with the incisiveness of a blunt knife on a block of wood - and they are almost caught out at the back. Home keeper Jonathan Ligali has barely broken sweat in the second half, but is needed to smartly save twice in quick succession from Serge Aurier's low angled shot and then Lucas Moura's prod.

FULL-TIME

It's all over in Genoa, and Lazio have held on against Sampdoria to claim all three points and edge closer to Champions League football next season. The win means Lazio leapfrog bitter city rivals Roma into second spot, however Roma can go back above them tomorrow with a win over Udinese at the Stadio Olimpico. Next weekend is the Rome derby as well - shaping up to be a cracker that one. Although Lazio have the small matter of the Italian Cup final against Juventus on Wednesday first.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Despite Montpellier dominating possession and territory since the break, they haven't really stretched PSG keeper Salvatore Sirigu. Another home corner...another poor delivery. PSG clear comfortably.

SUBSTITUTION

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

And here is a change that illustrates PSG's current nervousness. Off comes midfielder Yohan Cabaye, with centre-back Marquinhos stood on the touchline to take his place. That might see David Luiz pushing into midfield.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Hold on, PSG might not be celebrating if Montpellier have their way. The home side are knocking on the away door, dominating the second half as PSG sink deeper and deeper. Nerves perhaps as they edge closer to the title?

And if PSG do clinch the title, then here's one selfie-posing fan who will be delighted. Recognise him? You should do - it is, of course, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who is a staunch PSG fan. He wouldn't mix up PSG with Rennes, or Aston Villa with West Ham...

TWENTY TO GO

PSG are 20 minutes away from being crowned French champions. Unless Montpellier score twice - and even then that might not be enough to deny them. Second-placed Lyon, who are six points behind PSG with only one match left after tonight, are drawing 1-1 at home to Bordeaux.

SUBSTITUTION

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Time for a tactical switch from PSG. Laurent Blanc scribbles down the name of Lucas Moura on the substitution sheet, with goalscorer Ezequiel Lavezzi trudging off the pitch for the Brazilian.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

These Montpellier chances are arriving quicker than Tube trains at Oxford Circus now. Another ball from a wide area, this time from the right and in open play, is scuffed goalwards by half-time substitute Kevin Berigaud but deflected wide. He wants - and should be given - a corner but the referee thinks otherwise and gives a goal kick.

CLOSE!

David Luiz

Montpellier almost nick an equaliser! A free-kick is whipped into the PS box from the left flank, the ball pings off the shin of David Luiz and opposite centre-half Hilton reacts the quickest. But his sliding effort is blocked by a white PSG shirt as the visitors survive. A point would still be enough for PSG to claim the title.

Sampdoria 0-1 Lazio

Italian Serie A

Lazio are very much in control of this game and look more likely to get the second goal on the counter attack. Filip Dordevic has one such chance when he sweeps the ball goalwards only for Sampdoria defender Luca Rizzo to readjust his body to get a last-ditch block in.

Stat attack

Anthony Mounier

Montpellier forward Anthony Mounier has now scored nine goals in Ligue 1 this season, the best total of his career. Unfortunately he won't be adding to that tally today - he has been subbed, presumably because of a knock.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Like the first half, the restart has burst into life around the 15-minute mark. The game is flowing from end to end like a game of basketball at the moment. PSG goalscorers Ezequiel Lavezzi and Blaie Matuidi have a breakdown in communication as a promising attacking move ends with a loose pass.

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Bit of Montpellier pressure as they look to take advantage of any edginess from the champions-elect. Bryan Dabo tries to hammer a half clearance back towards with a vicious volley - but he doesn't connect cleanly and the ball spins hopelessly wide. That would have been a worldy.

Quiet start to the second half - pretty much like the first, which burst into life about the 15-minute mark. PSG waste a free-kick in a promising position as the home defence clear, before Serge Aurier's right-wing cross fails to pick out a fellow white shirt.

SUBSTITUTION

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

There has also been a change in personnel for the home side, with goalscorer Anthony Mounier not reappearing after the break. Presume that is because of an injury rather than a tactical switch. Kevin Berigaud replaces him.

The players have had their breather. And the coaches have had their say. Back underway in Montpellier...

PSG goalscorer Blaise Matuidi has caught the eye again with a typically energetic display. But do not expect to see the France international in the Premier League next season. Matuidi says he does not want to leave PSG after being linked with a move to Manchester United.

"I will be at Paris next season, unless the managers come and tell me they don't need me any more," said the 28-year-old midfielder, who is under contract until 2018.

"I feel good here, I'm valued by the coach, the managers and my team-mates. I love this city, I grew up here, everything's going well for me."

GOAL

Sampdoria 0-1 Lazio - Santiago Gentiletti (54 mins)

Italian Serie A

Sure enough Sampdoria's finishing has cost them as Lazio grab the lead from a corner. A dangerous inswinging delivery into the box and among all the jostling for position the ball drops at the back post and strikes the shin of the unmarked Santiago Gentiletti. There's just enough on power it to take it over the line despite a brave attempt to clear the ball by Samuel Eto'o.

Of course, PSG could even afford to lose tonight and still put their hands on the Ligue 1 trophy if nearest rivals Lyon do not beat Bordeaux at home. At the moment it is all square at Stade de Gerland. Here's what is happening across France tonight....

Lazio players celebrate
BBC

We're back under way at the Luigi Ferraris stadium. As you can see Lazio have a pretty good recent record against Sampdoria but the hosts probably shaded the first half. And veteran frontman Samuel Eto'o misses a golden chance early in the second period after being sent clear only to fire wide with just Etrit Berisha to beat.

HALF-TIME

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

You're going to be sick of this being drummed into you (but I'm making no apologies),

PSG are 45 minutes away from winning the French title. Laurent Blanc's men need just a point from Montpellier for a ménage à trois of Ligue 1 trophies.

HALF-TIME

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

This is remarkable. Hilton is still dishing out some choice words to PSG rival Javier Pastore as they disappear down the Stade de la Mosson tunnel for a half-time swig of water. Think the Montpellier defender needs to cool down...

INJURY TIME

Montpellier 1-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Brazilian defender Hilton pushes the face of Javier Pastore as he remonstrates with the Argentine, sparking a brief melee between both sets of players. Trying to nutmeg a defender?! The cheek. Bit of an overreaction from the Montpellier man, I'd suggest. Referee Fredy Fautrel reaches for his cards - and brandishes the yellow one in the direction of both Hilton and Pastore.
