How Memorable Would PSG’s Treble Be?

When the 2023-24 season began, Paris Saint-Germain supporters had tempered expectations given the superstars who left the club. Several months later, the club is on the verge of accomplishing something no fan thought was possible.

When the season began, the odds of PSG winning the treble were very low, regardless of which sites you compare on Those Swedish betting sites considered the departures of Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., and Marco Verratti when making their odds and didn’t believe PSG could win Ligue 1, the Coupe de France, and the UEFA Champions League all in one season with a rebuilt squad.

However, that’s exactly what Les Parisiens are on the verge of. PSG has an 11-point lead over AS Monaco at the top of the Ligue 1 table and barring a historical collapse, they should repeat as champions. In the Coupe de France, PSG will face Olympique Lyonnais in the final. That leaves the Champions League trophy where PSG is still battling for a place in the final.

PSG will have to get past Borussia Dortmund in the semi-final to reach the Champions League final, where they will face either FC Bayern Munich, who they lost to in the 2020 final, or Real Madrid, the club that Kylian Mbappé will reportedly join this summer.

Winning all three trophies would be the most memorable season in PSG history. It would be the culmination of more than a decade’s worth of work from Qatar Sports Investments, who took over at PSG in 2012. Since then, the club has invested heavily to build a squad capable of winning the Champions League. After chasing superstar players and building an unbalanced squad, they finally brought in young players hungry to prove they are among the best in Europe, and it paid off.

The lone superstar who does remain in the French capital is Mbappé. In likely his final season playing for his hometown club, Mbappé is on the precipice of delivering a treble to the city he loves and likely solidifying another trophy, the Ballon d’Or.

For Luis Enrique, a treble would make him the best manager in PSG history, and likely a new contract that would keep him at the club long-term.

Everything is on the table for PSG. It’s late April, and the club is still competing for every major trophy. No matter what happens, this will be a memorable season for the players, supporters, and everyone else who follows Paris Saint-Germain.
