Monaco to reimburse travelling fans after PSG thrashing

PSG were relentless as they pulled their closest rivals apart, Giovani Lo Celso and Angel Di Maria each scoring twice, Edinson Cavani and Julian Draxler also on target and Radamel Falcao involved with an own-goal.

Emery was hired at the start of last season after guiding Sevilla to three successive Europa League titles, as PSG aimed to take themselves to the next level in the Champions League. For now, we have not done anything.

"Today we have a coach who was on the pitch". He has a contract until the end of the season.

"Let's be positive tonight, we've done a lot of positive things".

"I am sure the project here will carry on for us to try to make our dream come true". It's really something lovely, thank you to everyone.

While Cavani's second half of the campaign has proved less prolific than the blistering spell that yielded 19 goals before Christmas, the Uruguayan bagged his league-best 25th goal with a powerful header from a Yuri Berchiche cross. We work hard, but the other clubs do it too. "But today we are very proud and happy with this title".

He was initially expected back in France to watch his team seal the title, but with such a walkover unexpected and a return to action still "about a month away", Neymar opted to remain in South America.

But their financial might - even regardless of the threat of UEFA sanctions for breaches of Financial Fair Play - ensures the playing field is so uneven at home, and the Champions League is their holy grail. Champions for the fifth time in six seasons, Emery's team are on course to set a new points record.

Defender Thomas Meunier added: "It was important to win, especially the way we did".

- Paris are the second earliest team to be crowned champions in the three-points era in Ligue 1 (after 33 games).

- PSG have scored 103 goals after 33 Ligue 1 games this season and have five games left to score 16 goals and overtake the most goals in a single Ligue 1 season record from RC Paris in 1959-60 (118). "We were faultless and I hope it will continue".

Monaco clinched their first title in 17 years in the 2016-17 season, spearheaded by a reinvigorated Falcao and the emergence of French teenager Kylian Mbappe.

The 41-year-old Benjamin Nivet fired Troyes back in front just after half-time as the veteran skipper followed up a rebound after Yohann Pele had saved from Grandsir. "That's good, you have to continue to enjoy it, because maybe one day there will not be any more".
