The match: 7-1
The handover was expected. But for Monaco, she was particularly painful. Undefeated since 17 games in Ligue 1 (12 wins, 5 draws), the Monegasques sank in the first half-hour at the Parc des Princes, conceding shots of Lo Celso (14th, 27th), Cavani (17th) and Di Maria (20th).

Without Glik and in an unusual device, in 4-2-3-1 (or 4-4-1-1 according to the moments) with Jorge in front of Sidibé on the left and Lemar behind Falcao, the men of Leonardo Jardim have nevertheless started well their match, as the opportunity missed by Almamy Toure (7th). But unlike the previous week in Saint-Etienne ( 1-1 ), the Parisians were in a big night. With the exception of a huge Cavani (10th) miss, Unai Emery’s players were very realistic, led by a very good Lo Celso. The midfielder opened the scoring after a very good move with Dani Alves and Cavani (14th), followed three minutes later by the Uruguayan (2-0, 17th) and Di Maria (3-0, 20th). The caress of the Argentine striker to lobate Subasic was matched only outside the foot of his countryman Pastore, originally doubled for Lo Celso (4-0, 27th). The match was already bent when Rony Lopes closed the gap (4-1, 38th) for Monaco, who had meanwhile lost Sidibé – out on stretcher, severely hit at one knee. But the Parisians were hungry for records: Di Maria (5-1, 58), Falcao against his side (6-1, 76) and Draxler helped beat the number of goals in the PSG Championship.
103 Paris has scored 103 goals in the Championship this season. This is one more than the record set over a whole season in 2015-2016.
Player: Lo Celso, rising star
Verratti injured, Thiago Motta and Lass Diarra on the bench, Lo Celso was holding Sunday night, ahead of Rabiot and next to Draxler. For this 14th start of the season (in 29 appearances), the Argentinian (22 years) behaved as a boss in the middle: 61 balls played, 11 balls won (2nd behind Alves, 14), 91% of passes successful. The midfielder perfectly distributed the game and was rewarded with his first double with PSG, which he joined early 2017.
