PSG dethrones Monaco clinches Ligue 1 title

Neymar PSG Barcelona Manchester United

Paris Saint-Germain reclaimed the Ligue 1 title this evening courtesy of a 7-1 drubbing of league rivals Monaco at the Parc des Princes.

Edinson Cavani and Julian Draxler also scored for happy hosts, while Rony Lopes and Radamal Falcao scored for Monaco, though the Colombia striker's effort was put into his own net.

Emery was hired for the European knockout expertise he exhibited with three successive Europa League triumphs at Sevilla, but consecutive last-16 eliminations in the Champions League are likely to cost him an extension, with Thomas Tuchel reportedly identified as the man to take them to the next level in Europe.

In quotes reported on the club's Twitter feed, Emery said: "Neymar is close to a return after the latest tests".

Although luck was on Monaco's side early on when Cavani missed a glorious opportunity, PSG were playing with a ruthlessness that was not going to see them slip up.


Kamil Glik's absence in the heart of the visiting defence was acutely felt as Lo Celso started the move that resulted in the opening goal on 14 minutes, sauntering into the box to tap in a Dani Alves cross. Floodgates duly opened, Angel Di Maria was the next to find the target, chipping Danijel Subasic after selfless work from Cavani (20').

Monaco's first-half humiliation did not stop there, however, as youngster Lo Celso headed home his second of the night after profiting from an adroit one-two between Draxler and Javier Pastore on the left wing.

Monaco briefly held up the onslaught as Lopes turned home an Almamy Toure cross seven minutes before half-time for the in-form Portugal international's 13th goal this term.

It never looked like being the start of an incredible comeback, even if PSG evidently eased off slightly after the restart.

But PSG continued to attack at will and Pastore's assist for Di Maria allowed the winger to grab his second of the game on 59 minutes.
