Paris St Germain thrash AS Monaco to clinch Ligue 1 title

Unai Emery's side reclaimed the title from Monaco with a devastating victory, in which Giovani Lo Celso and Angel Di Maria scored twice, alongside strikes from Edinson Cavani and Julian Draxler and a Radamel Falcao own goal.

Playing at the Parc des Princes against the team who denied them the title previous year was the flawless occasion for PSG, owned by big-spenders Qatar Sports Investments since 2011, to wrap up their fifth title in the Qatari era.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery said the club must continue to strengthen as the French champions try to transform their dominance at home into success in the Champions League.

"If we had signed with someone, we would have announced it to you", Al-Khelaifi told Canal+.

"There is a solid tool for the future, to remain number one in France and become that elsewhere with patience and hard work". The usual front three of Di Maria, Cavani and Neymar left teams for dead on numerous occasions with the front three scoring a total of 55 goals in Ligue 1 this season.

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.

"That defeat (to Real Madrid) hurt us but we continued to work with the players, the staff and the president who is always at our side", said PSG captain Thiago Silva.


- Paris have won their seventh Ligue 1 title.

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.

Three more goals followed in the second half as Leonardo Jardim's team relinquished their title of reigning champions in the least tenacious style imaginable.

Monaco had no answer to PSG's brilliance and Di Maria added a third after just 20 minutes, the winger racing on to Cavani's pass and outrageously scooping the ball over the helpless Danijel Subasic.

Seven minutes later, after a one-two with Cavani, Pastore whipped a flawless cross that Lo Celso headed home.

Monaco confirmed via their Twitter account that they would offer refunds to fans who made the long trip from the Principality to the French capital.
