Mauricio Pochettino declared himself 'satisfied' with PSG's win over Angers despite victory for Marseille delaying their coronation as Ligue 1 champions.
The Paris club needed to better their title rivals' result on Wednesday to clinch a 10th championship, and held up their end of the bargain as goals from Kylian Mbappe, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos secured a 3-0 win.
However, Marseille twice overturned Nantes leads in their game to secure three points and take the title race into the weekend.
Not that Pochettino was too disappointed, the Argentine saying: "Winning the championship as soon as possible is the best possible [outcome].
"It's not possible at the moment, but we had a good game and took the three points. That is most important.
"It's never easy, but I think it's a good performance from us. I am very satisfied with my players and these three points.
"I hope we can do it all together on Saturday at the Parc des Princes."
PSG's win was somewhat soured by the controversial late dismissal of young substitute Edouard Michut following a VAR review.
Replays appeared to show that the 19-year-old had only caught Romain Thomas with a high challenge as a direct result of a foul on him from Enzo Ebosse.
Of the decision, Pochettino added: "Edouard didn't do it on purpose. I do not understand the red card even if the action was of course dangerous.
"It really wasn't [his fault]. I am very disappointed with this and hope they can review the images and remove the card."
