Monaco Become Ligue 1 Champions for the 1st time in 17 Years

Monaco have won the Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years a home win against Saint-Etienne.

The Champions needed at least 1 point to win the French Title for the eighth time in their History.

Playmaker Kylian Mbappe went in with the opener.

Mbappe latched on to captain Radamel Falcao’s through ball, played around the goalkeeper and connected with the net.

Forward Valere Germain ensured their win in injury time with a tap-in from close range.

Monaco were comfortably secured to win the title before kick-off, with Paris St-Germain 3 points behind with just one game to play and a far inferior goal difference.
On Wednesday morning, the club announced on Twitter that American rapper 50 Cent would be performing at the players’ victory party.

A statement on the club’s website read: “The American star will come to celebrate the excellent results of Falcao’s teammates this Sunday in the Palace Square in the Principality.”
