Paris Saint-Germain have secured their seventh French Ligue 1 title (after 1986, 1994, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016). Clinching the title after just 33 games is the second fastest league triumph in history (since three points were awarded for a win) after… Paris Saint-Germain in 2016, who were crowned after just 30 matches, and equal with Lyon in 2007.
7 goals in a Ligue 1 match is a rare feat for Paris Saint-Germain... Before SUnday's game, in 1047 official matches at the Parc des Princes, the capital club had only scored seven goals in a game eight times: vs Fontainebleau in the Coupe de France (7-1, 13/02/1977), Troyes in D1 (8-2, 14/10/1977), Bastia in D1 (7-1, 21/09/1984), Rosenborg in the UEFA Champions League (7-2, 24/10/2000), La Gantoise in the Intertoto Cup (7-1, 01/08/2001), Bastia in the Coupe de France (7-0, 07/01/2017), Celtic in the UEFA Champions League (7-1, 22/11/2017) and Dijon in Ligue 1 (8-0, 17/01/2017).
In defeating Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain recorded a 40th Ligue 1 match in a row without defeat at the Parc des Princes. The capital club who have won 34 and drawn 6 since 20 March 2016, have set a new club record in the top flight. The previous record of 39 home league matches without defeat (28 wins, 11 draws) came between 18 December 1992 and 11 January 1995.
Angel Di Maria's brace on Sunday saw him bring up 50 competitive goals for Paris. The Argentinian international is closing in on the club's all-time Top 10. He is five goals shy of George Weah, in 11th, and six behind Guillaume Hoarau, in tenth. The Paris No.11 is top scorer (17) and assists provider (7) for Paris Saint-Germain in all competitions in 2018. He scored his tenth and 11th Ligue 1 goals of the season - his most prolific league campaign since arriving in Europe in 2007.
Sunday's seven goals means Paris Saint-Germain have now scored 103 goals in Ligue 1 in the 2017-18 season. It is a new club record after the 102 goals scored in 2015-16. There are five matches left in Ligue 1 to score the 16 goals required to beat RC Paris' all-time scoring record in the French top flight, set back in 1959-60 (118 goals). Paris Saint-Germain are the first team to score 100 goals in Europe's top five leagues this term.
