AS Monaco defeated Saint-Etienne 2-0 on Wednesday to win the Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years.


 

They needed a point to dethrone Paris Saint-Germain as French champions for the eighth time and the in-form Kylian Mbappe ensured they took the lead.

The 18-year-old striker latched on to captain Radamel Falcao’s through ball, skipped around the goalkeeper and slotted in.

Thereafter, Valere Germain sealed the win and the league title for the Les Rouges et Blancs in injury time with a tap-in from close range.

The home side had all but secured the title before kick-off, with PSG three points behind with just one game to play and a far inferior goal difference.
