Monaco fans get money back after thrashing

Paris Saint-Germain has torn teams apart this season with their potent attack.

Despite their success in two competitions, failure in the Champions League is likely to result in Emery moving on.

Paris Saint-Germain has reclaimed the Ligue 1 after thrashing former champions AS Monaco 7-1 at the Parc des Princes.

The visiting side and defending champions conceded four goals in the opening 27 minutes of a defeat which wrapped up the Ligue 1 title for PSG.

"They backed the team, but we couldn't do anything".

Falcao remains with Monaco but Mbappe - who joined PSG for £166m, initially on loan - and other key players such as defender Benjamin Mendy left the club last summer.

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

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.

"I think it is a serious injury", said Jardim. "We have taken back our title but we must continue to work, we have a French Cup semi-final (against Caen) on Wednesday".

PSG beat Monaco 3-0 in the French League Cup final at the end of last month and this performance was even more emphatic.

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

Javier Pastore supplied Lo Celso to head in PSG's fourth on 28 minutes and Monaco suffered further misfortune when France global Djibril Sidibe was stretchered off with a leg injury, a worrying sign for Didier Deschamps ahead of the World Cup.

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

Unai Emery's charges bagged a third goal on the 20-minute mark as Cavani turned provider to play in Angel Di Maria, who sent a cheeky lob over Danijel Subasic.

Uruguayan Cavani added a second with a powerful header from Germany winger Draxler's cross before Di Maria scored the pick of the goals.

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.

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.
