Monaco, PSG locked in final battle for Ligue 1 title

Monaco, PSG locked in final battle for Ligue 1 title

Last-placed Bastia was infuriated less at losing to French league contender Paris Saint-Germain 5-0 than at a PSG goal it considered unsporting on Saturday.

Monaco took a giant step towards the Ligue 1 title by beating relegation-threatened Nancy 3-0 at Stade Marcel Picot on Saturday.

Edinson Cavani bagged his 32nd goal of the campaign before the striker missed a penalty late on.

The winger has contributed 17 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season and could make for a fine addition to the Reds' side.

Mbappe was among the substitutes as Monaco went on the attack from kick-off and they led after three minutes when Nabil Dirar's pass allowed Valere Germain to break down the right flank.

Graham, a defense hawk who dined with Trump on Monday night, said North Korea should not underestimate the president's resolve. The nuclear-powered U.S. submarine USS Michigan made a port call at South Korea's Busan yesterday in another show of force.

They are three points clear of defending champions PSG at the Ligue 1 summit, with a game in hand and a superior goal difference. "I lived very special moments in their blue jersey". Nothing has been decided yet and it's not over. "We need to stay focused". "This was a big result for us, on a synthetic pitch three days after playing in the Champions League".

Also, they were nearly impossible to finish second, a spot that will guarantee an automatic qualification into next season's UEFA Champions League group stage, at the end of the season as they trailed Paris Saint-Germain by six points. Patrice Evra's victor - his first OM goal - came after Mario Balotelli had cancelled out Bafétimbi Gomis' opener and the result lifted Rudi Garcia's side to fifth, setting up what he called a "final" for fifth place and Europa League football at Bordeaux next week.

Nancy were outclassed but could still save their season if coach Pablo Correa can guide them to victory in their next game against fellow strugglers Dijon, and get something from the visit of Saint-Etienne on the final day.

Lyon are well on course to finish fourth, though they made life hard for themselves before defeating Nantes 3-2 at Parc OL. So the defeat in the last round of the Nice with a score of 3: 1, was the first since December 17 past year, but it allowed the lead Monaco to break away by 3 points, having to the same match in reserve.
