Paris Saint Germain 0-2 Monaco

Vagner Love
Vagner Love scored his fourth goal since joining Monaco from CSKA Moscow in January

Paris St-Germain saw their title party fall flat as the Ligue 1 champions lost 2-0 to second-placed Monaco to suffer a first home league loss since May 2014.

A week after securing a fourth straight title, PSG were beaten for only the second time in the league this season.

Vagner Love swept Monaco in front from Thomas Lemar's 65th-minute cross.

David Luiz then pulled back Fabinho to concede a penalty which the Brazilian coolly chipped home as Monaco won after three successive draws.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

PSG were guilty of a handful of bad misses as they lacked their usual intensity on what should have been a night of celebration at the Parc des Princes.

Top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic could have scored a hat-trick, while substitute Jean Kevin-Augustin also steered wide from close range late on.

The visitors moved within 22 points of PSG but more importantly went six points clear of fourth-placed Lyon as they look to secure Champions League qualification.

The top three clubs in France gain a place in the Champions League with the top two going straight into the group stage.
