Commentary

Minute   Description
That is all tonight folks, hope you enjoyed the action. Goodbye!
Monaco will still fancy their chances of finishing second but PSG have set the bar and they produced a sublime display this evening.
PSG have led the way since week three and they deserve all the praise in the world. Emery has guided them home and he will be hoping it is enough to save his job. Monaco were simply blown away tonight!
FULL-TIME - PSG 7-1 Monaco. PSG ARE LIGUE 1 CHAMPIONS!
86' Meunier's cross sets up Draxler who is celebrating his first Ligue 1 title tonight.
GOAALLLLLL!!!!. It is 7-1, yes seven!!!!! Draxler scores from another quick breakaway as his shot deflects past Subasic.
84' Pastore releases Yuri down the left and Raggi comes to the rescue to concede a corner.
82' Falcao's night is over as young midfielder Tielemans steps onto the field of play.
80' Lo Celso makes way after scoring two and on comes Nkunku. That means Mbappe will not get the chance to feature against his former club this time around.
78' Moutinho is the latest man into the book.
What a way to win the title. There's still 12 minutes to go and things could get worse for the visitors.
76' OWN GOAL. PSG 6-1 Monaco - Would you believe it, Falcao has scored in the wrong net. Usually so good at the other end but he takes his eye off the ball and it strikes his shoulder and flies into the top corner.
75' Monaco also make a sub as Diakhaby replaces goalscorer Lopes.
That is Di Maria's last involvement as he is replaced by Meunier.
74' CHANCE - PSG carve open Monaco's defence and the ball is worked to Di Maria but his left-footed shot is blocked by Subasic for a corner.
71' CHANCE - Alves latches onto a looping cross-field ball and he skins his marker but fails to shoot on two occasions and Monaco clear the danger.
69' PSG are enjoying themselves out there now and just trying one or two things that they may normally struggle to get away with.
66' Pastore picks up possession in the Monaco box but his cross is just too close to Subasic and Monaco survive.
65' Emery looks to be trying to keep it fresh in midfield as Diarra replaces Rabiot.
62' Still no sign of Mbappe who remains on the bench against his former side. He has been ill this week and has not trained as a result.
61' Raggi joins Fabinho in the book after protesting the decision.
Yellow card for Fabinho after he smashes into Cavani.
60' CHANCE - Di Maria is inches away from his hat-trick as he backheels a Draxler cross and it takes a deflection off Jemerson and bounces onto the post. Monaco somehow survive.
58' Highlight reel stuff from Pastore as his first touch changes the pace of the move and he plays in Di Maria just seconds later.
There we have it! PSG 5-1 up and this could get worse! Di Maria slots home his second of the night and it is simply brilliant football from Emery's men. The former Real Madrid and Manchester United man surges through on goal and makes no mistake from the edge of the box.
55' PSG just struggling to have as much freedom on the ball but the damage was done in the first half and they still have time to find their fifth.
54' Fabinho wins a free-kick in the middle of the park after being brought down by three PSG players as they tried everything to outmuscle him.However, PSG do enough to block the shot.
52' PSG have not made the greatest start to the second half and they seem to be taking too many touches on the edge of their own box.
50' CHANCE - Pastore makes a shocking mistake as he plays across his own 18-yard box and Lopes pounces but he shoots straight at Areola who does well to narrow the angle.
48' Monaco will need a miracle to come back to get a draw here but they need to show a bit more confidence in and around the box.
46' We are back underway in Paris and PSG are 45 minutes away from winning their seventh Ligue 1 title.
The players head into the tunnel and now everyone can catch their breath. A fantastic first-half display from PSG has all but confirmed the Ligue 1 title will be returning to Paris. Emery's men have really put on a performance for those in attendance but Monaco did do well to salvage some pride.
HALF-TIME - PSG 4-1 Monaco.
45' Alves goes down with an ankle knock as the fourth official comes out to confirm two minutes of stoppage time.
44' CHANCE - Lopes nearly grabs his second of the night as he latches onto a Toure cross but he cannot get high enough and heads the bottom of the ball and can only place his effort behind the goal.
43' The crowd at the Parc des Princes rise to their feet as Draxler flies through the air to try and smash home a bicycle kick but he cannot connect and Monaco can bring the ball away.
42' Nothing comes from the free-kick as the ball strikes Ghezzal in the face from close range and PSG will now be determined to get another before the interval.
40' Pastore goes into the book after an aggressive challenge on the right wing. Free-kick to Monaco...
38' Touré bursts down the right and his cutback was perfectly placed for Lopes.
GOALLL! Monaco grab a goal before half-time and Lopes finishes off a fine counter attack. He managed to stay onside and then get into space before tapping in the cross at the far post.
34' Seems strange to say but Monaco are now just playing for pride for the rest of the game. They look stunned out there and they are going to need to suck it up as PSG celebrate their title win.
Sidibe is now down the tunnel and on comes Ghezzal.
31' Bad news for Monaco and their fans as Sidibe goes down near the touchline and he needs a stretcher to help him off the field of play.
30' The pressure could have been too much tonight for PSG but to say they have handled it well is an understatement.
27' First assist for the night for Pastore as his inch-perfect cross is met with power by Lo Celso.
GOALLLL!!! It is now 4-0 and this is far too easy for Emery's men and Lo Celso grabs his second of the evening. The midfielder glides into the box and just guides his header into the bottom corner.
26' Monaco win a set piece and try to cause the home defence some problems but Areola is on hand to punch and then catch both crosses.
20' Cavani's fine night continues after his through ball allowed Di Maria to grab the third goal of the evening.
WHAT A GOAL!!!!! This is incredible from PSG and they now lead 3-0. Di Maria springs the offside trap and Jorge was unable to catch him and he then rubs salt into the wounds by lobbing Subasic with ease.
19' Still early days at the Parc des Princes but PSG's fans are already partying. If the scoreline stays the same then Emery's men are Ligue 1 champions.
17' Left-back Yuri grabs an assist after a powerful cross allows Cavani to climb above Sidibe.
GOAAALLLL! Cavani grabs another goal in what has been a sublime season. The Uruguay international showed incredible movement to break free and his bullet header was too much for Subasic.
14' Alves claims the assist after his low drilled cutback is met by Lo Celso.
GOAAALLLLL!!!! A fantastic team move carves open the Monaco defence and Lo Celso, who started it, finishes it with just his second Ligue 1 goal of the season. Cavani was also invovled and the visitors looked helpless there!
13' Commentator's curse as Falcao finally latches onto a cross but the Colombia international does not connect cleanly and Areola allows it to trickle behind for a goal kick.
12' Falcao has looked busy after some good runs in behind but no other Monaco player has been able to find him so far.
10' HUGE CHANCE - Cavani strikes wide of the target but it should be 1-0. A cross from the right is played into his path after some poor defending but Cavani's left-footed volley flies past the far post.
7' CHANCE - After the original cross was cleared, Monaco create an opportunity but Toure strikes thin air and PSG hook the ball away.
6' Sloppy challenge on the edge of the PSG box gives Monaco a free-kick.
4' Slow tempo in the early stages but it is PSG who are dictating play and trying to cause problems.
3' Early penalty claims from Monaco as the ball strikes Alves on the arm but the referee waves it away and PSG can build an attack.
1' We are underway at the Parc des Princes.
The teams are out on the field of play. PSG know they have what it takes to win the title tonight, they beat Monaco in the Coupe de Ligue just two weeks ago but the pressure is on!
Just three changes for Leonardo Jardim this evening as Glik, Tielemans and Balde all drop out and in come Toure, Raggi and Lemar. Kick off just minutes away and it promises to be a cracker!!

TEAM NEWS coming up...
PSG are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions, but they disappointed their fans last time out after drawing 1-1 with St Etienne. Monaco have won three of their last five matches and they come into this one on the back of a 2-1 win over Nantes.
However, Emery's men are on a superb run in front of their home fans in the league at present. PSG have won their last 16 home Ligue 1 games which is the best run in the club's history.
PSG currently lead Leonardo Jardim's men by 14 points and they are within touching distance of yet another Ligue 1 crown. Reports suggest it may not be enough to save Unai Emery's job, with Thomas Tuchel lurking in the background waiting to make his next career move.
Good evening and welcome along to tonight's live coverage of the Ligue 1 clash between Paris Saint-Germain vs Monaco. The home side can clinch the league title this evening with a victory but Monaco will be doing all they can in second to delay the party.
