PSG ships seven past Monaco to seal title

PSG secures Ligue 1 title with 7-1 rout over Monaco and an amazing goal from Angel Di Maria

So far in 33 league matches, Unai Emer's side has won 28 and scored 103 goals in the process, allowing just 23.

Things only got worse for Monaco after half-time, as Di Maria got another before Radamel Falcao's own goal and Julian Draxler's late strike rounded off an astonishing win.

PSG will be looking to also win the Coupe de France and is now in the semi-final of that competition.

Playing at the Parc des Princes against the team who denied them the title past year was the ideal occasion for PSG, owned by big-spenders Qatar Sports Investments since 2011, to wrap up their fifth title in the Qatari era. "Monaco, Nantes, Saint-Etienne, Marseille, Lyon...but we must keep on building", Emery, who is likely to be replaced in the summer, told Canal+. We work hard, but the other clubs do it too.

The win gives PSG its seventh league crown in its young history and its fifth since 2013.

PSG also became the first team in Europe's top leagues this season to reach 100 goals on a night they were without the injured Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the teenager left on the bench after a bout of illness.

However, next season they will look to cement themselves as one of Europe's elite clubs by improving on this season's disappointing Champions League campaign.

They have also injured not less than 3,000 people since the start of protests, according to the reports by Gaza's health ministry. Israel says it is doing what it must to defend its border, and to stop any of the protesters getting across the fence.

"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.

Cavani was soon involved for the better in the 14th minute, as he cleverly fed Dani Alves into the area and the Brazilian set up Lo Celso for an easy finish.

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.

PSG still had enough to restore their four-goal advantage, though, as Di Maria found the bottom-right corner after being fed into the box by Pastore in the 58th minute.

Monaco did managed to pull a goal back six minutes before the break when Rony Lopes turned home Almamy Touré's cross.

Germany global Draxler rounded out the demolition, firing home via a deflection as PSG clinched the title at home for the first since 1994 while shattering Monaco's 17-match unbeaten run.

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.
