PSG, Bayern and Real Betis were the first to laugh this season as they lifted the domestic trophies.
Le Parisien finally claimed the trophy they lost last season to Lille. Mauricio Pocchettino's men did not need to win while playing host to RC Lens on the weekend to secure the silverware. They only needed to pick up one point, which they did with a 1-1 draw at their home turf. Leo Messi netted a stunner earlier at the second half before Jean put them back on level terms. It is the only trophy Le Parisien could clinch this season after their premature exit in UCL and French Cup.

In Bundesliga, Bayern Munich once again sealed their tenth consecutive victory in the top flight. Last weekend, in Der Klassiker, Lewy and Co did not have any difficulty in crushing Dortmund 3-1. Serge Gnabry's long range strike gave them the lead followed by Lewandowski's close range shot. Emre Can's penalty gave the visitors the lifeline before Jamal Musiala headed home. It is the first domestic title for Julian Nagelsmann who had never won any silverwares with Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig before.
Last but not least, it was a wonderful weekend for Real Betis Balompie. They were able to secure Copa Del Rey after thumping Valencia 5-4 on penalties. Both sides had to go through the extra time as they were unable to maximise a number of chances due to lacking of clinical finish. Betis took the lead through Borja Iglesias's header before Hugo Duro equalised. During the shootout, the executors from both teams managed to find the back of the net except Valencia youngster, Yunus Musah. The American winger's strike flew wide.
This is Betis' third Copa Del Rey title in history. They won the first two in 1977 and 2005. Meanwhile, for their manager, Manuel Pellegrini, it is his first ever domestic title in Spain. The Chilean boss has never lifted any trophies during his spells in Villarreal, Malaga and Real Madrid. He was more successful in England as he clinched one Premier League title and two League Cups.
