Ligue 1: PSG thrash Monaco 7-1 to lift title
Paris Saint-Germain have claimed the Ligue 1 title after thrashing defending champions Monaco 7-1 on Sunday.
Giovanni lo Celso fired PSG into the lead in the 14th minute, before goals from Edinson Cavani, Angel di Maria and a second from Lo Celso made it 4-0 inside 27 minutes.
Monaco got one back through Rony Lopes just before the half-time, but Di Maria scored again soon after the restart to secure PSG’s 100th league goal this season.
Monaco striker, Radamel Falcao scored against his side to make the night even worse before a late strike from Julian Draxler finished off the scoring for the new champions.
Monaco stunned the French league last season when they raced to a league title, but a massive exodus of players last summer proved fatal to their chances of successfully defending their title.
