The 2014–15 season was Paris Saint-Germain Football Club's 45th in existence and their 42nd in the top-flight of French football. The team competed in Ligue 1, the Coupe de France, the Coupe de la Ligue, the Trophée des Champions and the UEFA Champions League.[2]

Summary[edit]

Just weeks after winning a first trophy of the season in Beijing, with the 2014 Trophée des Champions and the 2-0 win over Guingamp, Paris were struggling to impose themselves on Ligue 1. With 3 wins and 5 draws, Paris Saint-Germain were sitting five points adrift of Olympique de Marseille after eight games (19 points for OM and 14 for Paris).[3]

After something of a World Cup hangover for the club's international stars, Les Rouge-et-Bleu really hit their stride in October, and especially November. Lens (1-3), Girondins de Bordeaux (3-0), Lorient (1-2), Marseille (2-0), Metz (2-3) and Nice (1-0) were all beaten by Laurent Blanc's men. Paris moved second on the ladder, just one point behind OM, but six ahead of Olympique Lyonnais. Paris Saint-Germain were on their way, but December saw a first loss of the campaign to Guingamp (1-0) as the capital club finished the first half of the season in third place, three points adrift of Marseille.[3]

The start of January saw Paris make a successful start to the Coupe de France, eliminating Montpellier 3-0. After a surprise 4-2 loss to Bastia in the league, Paris recorded a series of positive results which saw them fighting on all four fronts. In the UEFA Champions League, Thiago Silva and company wrote one of the most spectacular pages in the club's history: after a 1-1 home draw with Chelsea in the first leg of the UCL last-16, Les Parisiens produced an heroic qualification at Stamford Bridge, going through on the away goals rule. A prestigious victory over Marseille, 3-2, and a win in the 2015 Coupe de la Ligue Final against Bastia, 4-0, followed, before Paris were eliminated from the Champions League by future finalists Barcelona. But Paris bounced back by booking their place in the final of the Coupe de France with a resounding semi-final win against Saint-Étienne, 4-0, and kept hopes alive of an unprecedented quadruple.[3]

Fighting tooth and nail with Lyon in the championship, Paris set a cracking pace with a series of big wins (6-1 vs Lille, 3-1 vs Metz, 2-0 vs Nantes, 6-0 vs Guingamp). Paris were in unstoppable form and the pressure told as Lyon cracked against Caen, going down 3-0 in Week 36. In the end, it was at the Stade de la Mosson that Paris officially secured a fifth French championship in their history and the third in a row. The capital club then left their mark on French football by defeating Auxerre, 1-0 with a goal from Cavani, in the 2015 Coupe de France Final at the Stade de France to claim an unprecedented domestic quadruple.[3]
