The PSG humiliates Monaco and offers the title of champion of France of Ligue 1
Expected for several weeks, the title of French champion PSG is now official. Paris had no mercy for Monaco, his dauphin, humiliated 7-1 at the Parc des Princes. Lo Celso and Di Maria scored twice.
A good start to the match
4-0 in 28 minutes! To formalize a seventh title of champion of France, the PSGdid the show under the eyes of his supporters. While we could hope that Monaco resist more than in the recent final of the Coupe de la Ligue (3-0), it was not. After a first quarter of an hour of observation, Paris feasted with a superb opening score of Giovani Lo Celso (1-0, 14th). The Argentinian was at the conclusion of a collective movement of great beauty with Daniel Alves and Edinson Cavani. At the origin of the action, the midfielder entered the penalty area and was perfectly found by the Brazilian. The festival started. Above an overtaken Djibril Sidibé and spectator, Edinson Cavani fooled Danijel Subasic with a header after a center from Yuri Berchiche (2-0, 17th). The same Edinson Cavani sent Angel Di Maria into the depth that concluded with a subtle lob (3-0, 20th). As if that was not enough, Giovani Lo Celso was going for a double, served by an exceptional caviar of Javier Pastore from outside the right foot (4-0, 28th). A coffee, the addition.
Monaco had the merit of not abdicating
With this beginning of the meeting completely harvested, Leonardo Jardim, who had chosen the defense to five (system that allowed him to win at the Park two years ago), did not abstain. Little by little, Monaco finally came out, aware that he had nothing to fear, except a serious suitcase … that he could not avoid. A more offensive face that quickly paid off with the reduction of Rony Lopes’ score (4-1, 38th). After overflowing Yuri Berchiche, Almamy Toure found the Portuguese, forgotten by Daniel Alves. The opportunity for the former Lille to continue his superb series: here it is with at least one goal scored in the last eight days! The number 20 could even double the bet just before half-time, but his head was flying (45th). Still concerned, the ASM continued its efforts and it took a large Alphonse Areola to intervene again against Rony Lopes after an offering, and a mistake, Javier Pastore (50th). But the fifth goal signed Angel Di Maria (5-1, 58th) put an end to the meager hopes of return of the men of the Rock. An Angel Di Maria ideally served by Javier Pastore. Behind, it was once again the deluge: the poor Radamel Falcao scored against his side following a corner (6-1, 76th). Julien Draxler added a final goal after seeing the leather cross the entire surface (7-1, 86th). With four points ahead of Lyon, 3rd, Monaco must now secure its second place. The program until May: Guingamp, Amiens, Caen, Saint-Etienne and Troyes.
Paris formalizes its seventh championship
1986, 1994, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and therefore 2018: with this great success on its dolphin, Paris Saint-Germain is now assured of winning the seventh title of champion of France in its history. A title that had been promised to him for weeks. This slap against Monaco has finally been the illustration of an undivided domination since last August (Paris has won 28 games in 33 outings).
After a very dull performance, with several elements completely next to the plate last week in Saint-Etienne (1-1), Paris has caught up well at home. The beginning of the match has obviously helped to then manage his lead and have fun on certain sequences as on this “madjer” Angel Di Maria on the post (60) or the return of acrobatics Daniel Alves (73). But it is the entire Parisian collective that has made a very clean copy in front of Monaco. Just like Javier Pastore, who had a lot of things to be forgiven. El Flaco was triple decisive passer. Ideal evening so to formalize a new doubled on the national scene. Paris is now aiming for a hat-trick with the Coupe de France
