Nimes narrowly avoided relegation to the second division. It was in 18th place — the relegation-playoff position — when the league was ended early because of the coronavirus pandemic. Toulouse finished last and was relegated along with next-to-last Amiens. Paris Saint-Germain was declared champion.
On Tuesday, clubs voted to maintain the top division at 20 teams for the 2020-21 season, a move that ended Amiens’ and Toulouse’s hopes of avoiding relegation. The demoted teams had proposed a 22-team league next season.
