Monaco’s end of season Ligue 1 cliff-hanger continues after an impressive 4-0 home win against Lille on Sunday night. Although finishing top of the French Ligue 1 is now almost assured, it won’t be until Wednesday night’s game against St Etienne – also at home – that Monaco’s league triumph is confirmed, if AS Monaco don’t lose.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain demolished St Etienne 5-0 on Sunday night, but lag behind Monaco by three points and a less impressive goal difference. If Monaco can avoid losing on Wednesday, it will be the first time since 2000 that they will have taken the title.
Radamel Falcao scored the first to two goals to his name just six minutes into the Lille game, with Silva scoring a third with help from Mbappe. Lille defender Junior Alonso diverted a shot into his own goal which took the final score to 4-0.
The season has been a remarkable one for the Monaco team, despite losing out on a Champions League place in the final in Cardiff in June. Not only has Falcao found his form again, but Kylian Mbappe – just 18 – has thrilled the crowds with his outstanding ability, and his goals. (Feature image: Facebook AS Monaco)
