Lucas Moura and Marquinhos each found the net between the 34-year-old’s two goals.

The fourth-placed Nice rounded up a superb campaign after Alassanne Plea scored twice in a 3-2 win away to Guingamp.

At the other end of the table, Toulouse secured survival with a superb comeback from 2-1 down to a 3-2 win at Angers, thanks to two goals in two minutes from Martin Braithwaite and substitute Yann Bodiger after Wissam Ben Yedder’s strike.

Toulouse subsequently finish on the 17th position, with Gazelec Ajaccio heading into Ligue 2 after being beaten 1-0 by Lorient, along with bottom club Troyes, who drew 1-1 with Marseille, and Reims, whose 4-1 thrashing of second-placed Lyon proved to be in vain.

Among the other results from the 38th and final round, Lille won away 1-0 at Saint-Etienne with a penalty to secure a top-five finish, while Caen beat Bordeaux 1-0 to climb into seventh at the expense of Rennes, who lost 2-1 at home to Bastia with courtesy of two goals from Francois Kamano.
