PSG star Neymar reveals which game he expects to return for

Share

PSG, who netted four goals in the opening half-hour, have 87 points with five games remaining and lead second-placed Monaco by 17 points after doubles by Giovani Lo Celso and Angel Di Maria, goals by Edison Cavani and Julian Draxler and a Radamel Falcao own goal.

"He needs independence and PSG have big plans". They can't play in one club.

Yet, despite PSG easing to the Ligue 1 and Coupe de la Ligue titles, with the chance of Coupe de France glory still to come, such domestic success is unlikely to be enough to save Unai Emery's job, with the Basque coach's expiring contract not expected to be renewed.

"He could possibly play in the final matches of the season".

Edinson Cavani should have given PSG the lead after 10 minutes but he somehow volleyed wide from six-yards out.

Lo Celso tapped in from Alves's cross from close range in the 14th before Cavani beat Danijel Subasic with a powerful downward header, sending the home crowd into raptures three minutes later.

A period of outstanding attacking play was rounded off in the 20th minute when Cavani turned and hit a ball beyond the Monaco defence on the halfway line, which allowed Di Maria to scamper clear and lob Subasic with the deftest of chips to make it 3-0.

In a whirlwind first half, AS were able to grab themselves a slender lifeline when Berchiche was robbed by Almamy Toure, leaving the full-back to drill across goal and find Rony Lopes who lashed in at the back post.

Neymar has already started work in the gym to prepare for the World Cup, which starts June 14.

Javier Pastore supplied Lo Celso to head in PSG's fourth on 28 minutes and Monaco suffered further misfortune when France worldwide Djibril Sidibe was stretchered off with a leg injury, a worrying sign for both club and country ahead of the World Cup.

It is the first time that Monaco have conceded seven goals in a top-flight game since 1974 and the heavy defeat prompted the club to offer to give fans their money back.
