Sensational PSG Reclaim Ligue 1 Title With Monaco Rout

Sensational PSG Reclaim Ligue 1 Title With Monaco Rout

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, has said he still needs a month to recover from a foot operation.

PSG got off to a good start as they found the opening goal after 14 minutes, with Giovani Lo Celso finishing off a fine team move.

PSG grabbed a second just a minute later too, Draxler threading Yuri Berchiche on the overlap, who was then able to cross for Cavani as the frontman rose above his marker to thump an unstoppable header beyond Danijel Subasic.

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.

To his enormous credit, Lopes remained willing to swim as hard as he could against the tide, and minutes into the second half he was close to reducing the arrears further, stealing Cavani's pass intended for Thiago Silva before drawing a save from Areola (50'). Adrien Rabiot - the darling of the PSG faithful as an academy graduate in a sea of expensive stars - was met with rapturous applause when he came off for Lassana Diarra (65'), but the change in personnel affected little change on the match.

The hosts were gifted another when Falcao's attempt to clear a corner went horribly wrong, summing up Monaco's misery as the ball looped beyond Subasic on 77 minutes.

Julian Draxler rounded off the scoring for PSG in the 86th minute, with German attacker turning home Thomas Munier's cross.

In quotes reported on the club's Twitter feed, Emery said: "Neymar is close to a return after the latest tests". Maybe he will get the opportunity to play some games before the end of season. Setting the SceneUnai Emery's Parisian giants had won 27 of their 32 Ligue 1 games heading into Sunday's clash with Monaco, leaving them 14 points ahead of the Principality club with just six games to play.
