Argentinos Abroad: Lo Celso & Di María shine as PSG thrash Monaco to seal title, Ángel Correa scores in Atleti win, Driussi nets for Zenit & Tagliafico sees red (VIDEO)

A year after seeing Monaco steal their Ligue 1 crown, PSG emphatically reclaimed the title with a 7-1 thrashing of their rivals to wrap up the joint-second fastest triumph in the history of Le Championnat.

The hugely impressive Giovani Lo Celso slid in the opening goal after quarter of an hour and with it the floodgates opened.

Edinson Cavani headed in a second before setting up Ángel Di María for a sensational third, the Argentinian scooping the ball over Danijel Subasic.

There was still only 27 minutes on the clock when Javier Pastore’s exquisite outside of the boot cross was headed into the net by Lo Celso for the youngster’s second as PSG ripped Monaco to shreds.

Rony Lopes reduced the deficit before half time but Pastore slipped in Di María for PSG’s fifth shortly before the hour mark and when Falcao headed Lo Celso’s corner into his own net, things could barely get worse for Monaco.

Julian Draxler added a seventh on the break to seal the win and the title and now Paris is set for another interesting summer of development. Whether there full Argentinian contingent will remain in the plans remains to be seen.

Atlético Madrid maintained their grip on second in LaLiga with a comfortable 3-0 win over Levante.

Ángel Correa, who is tipped to miss out on Jorge Sampaoli’s World Cup squad, drilled Atleti ahead after 33 minutes and second half goals by Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres wrapped up the points.

With nine goals this season, it is Correa’s most productive and the 23-year-old remains an  useful option available to Argentina.

Nicolás Tagliafico endured a nightmarish afternoon in the Eredivisie as the former Independiente captain was sent off in Ajax’s 3-0 defeat to rivals PSV. A victory that handed the Eindhoven club the title.

And finally, Sebastián Driussi scored the only goal as Zenit St. Petersburg defeated Anzhi Makhachkala. The 22-year-old has had a slightly disappointing campaign after a blistering start to his career in Russia and Zenit’s title hopes gradually disappeared.
