Monaco coach Jardim staying cautious amid title euphoria

Share

Monaco celebrated a century of league goals with the win that all but sealed the French title, beating Lille 4-0 on Sunday to leave Paris Saint-Germain needing a spectacular Monaco collapse in order to defend their title.

The Parisian side have endured a hard season following the resurgence of Monaco under Leonardo Jardim, and they now find themselves three points behind the league leaders, who also have a game in hand over Les Rouge-et-Bleu. We need to keep working and keep focused.

"We had to be careful (against Lille) and we were".

The closest to these three in goals scored in Europe's top five leagues comes in the form of Serie A's Napoli, who have registered 86 goals this season.

PSG won 5-0 at Saint-Etienne on Sunday, with striker Edinson Cavani scoring twice to reach 35 league goals.

Lucas Moura also scored in each half, while Julian Draxler added a last-minute fifth for the Parisiens, whose final game is at Angers next week.

"As long as it's mathematically possible, we're going to do everything to play for the title right to the end", Maxwell told the club's official website.

"Congratulations to Monaco for the work they've done".

Promoted last summer, Pablo Correa's men could be set for a speedy return to French football's second tier following their 2-0 defeat to another basement dweller, Dijon FCO. We improved over the course of the season, but it was not enough.

Ismaila Sarr fired a second-half equaliser to earn Metz a 1-1 home draw against Toulouse, who had taken an early lead through Martin Braithwaite and Nantes beat Guingamp 4-1 in their last home game of the season.

Lyon bounced back from the pain of Thursday's agonising Europa League last-four exit against Ajax with a 3-1 triumph at Montpellier, Alexandre Lacazette netting twice after Nabil Fekir's opening goal.

Bastia kept alive their survival hopes heading into the final day next week with a 2-0 home win against relegation rivals Lorient, thanks to late goals from Enzo Crivelli and substitute Gael Danic.

Caen also remain in a relegation scrap as a 1-0 home defeat to Rennes left them just a point clear of the bottom three.
