Paris Saint-Germain regained the Ligue 1 title in style after an emphatic victory over defending champions Monaco at the Parc des Princes. A devastating display from PSG gave the Qatar-owned club an unassailable 17-point lead over second-placed Monaco.
Paris Saint-Germain won the French league title after beating defending champion Monaco 7-1 on Sunday (Apr 15), with the crushing victory highlighting the obvious gulf between the two teams this season. Monaco meekly surrendered the title that it had won so impressively last season, doing little to prolong the suspense. It was losing 4-0 after 28 minutes as PSG easily did enough for a fifth title in six seasons and a seventh overall.
PSG leads second-place Monaco by 17 points with five rounds remaining.
Midfielder Giovani Lo Celso and winger Angel Di Maria scored two goals each, while league top scorer Edinson Cavani grabbed his 25th of the season. PSG captain Thiago Silva's header went in off Radamel Falcao -- Monaco's top scorer -- for PSG's sixth goal before Germany winger Julian Draxler netted the seventh.
Earlier, Marseille secured a last-gasp 3-2 win at Troyes to move level on points with Lyon, which is in third place on goal difference.
