Monaco wins 1st French league title in 17 years

Mbappe like a young Neymar believes Benzema

Mbappe like a young Neymar believes Benzema

The 18-year-old has netted 24 goals in an incredible breakthrough season at Stade Louis II, having only previously found the net once in eleven appearances prior to the campaign.

The 18-year-old's future at the club is expected to be a hot topic all summer after a fantastic season where his goals helped Monaco to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years and to the Champions League semi-finals. This is the most attractive season in club history with a Champions League semi-final, a League Cup final and this Ligue 1 title.

Monaco's season finale comes Saturday at Rennes.

Led by the strike duo of Radamel Falcao and Mbappe, Monaco averaged almost three goals per game this season to end PSG's four-year dominance.

He cashed in at the far post after Victor Wanyama nodded the ball back across goal - and there was more to come. They absolutely dismantled the defending champions on their home patch, winning 6-1.

Mbappe has established himself as a key player in the Monaco side after the teenager scored five times in nine games in the Champions League group stage this term.

Monaco now have 92 points ahead of second-placed PSG (86), with one game to go. I'm very proud of this team, of these players.

With Monaco still searching for another goal, Leonardo Jardim introduced Valere Germain for Silva on 70 minutes.

The youngster has been largely linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United over the course of the last few months.

As for besting Santana, Marquez said: "I have a lot of pride in beating Santana, one of the best pitchers in the game right now". The Rockies and Twins complete a series between surprising division leaders with a day-night doubleheader at Target Field.

Saint-Etienne held Monaco to a 1-1 draw in October, but Christophe Galtier's side arrived in the principality low on confidence after their 5-0 thrashing by PSG and decimated by injury.

Alexander Soderlund and Habib Maiga had early efforts for Saint-Etienne as Monaco made a nervous start to the game.

Another Monaco graduate, one who also played with Henry and enjoyed success with the French national team, has spoken about Mbappe - and given him a clear warning. The inability to put players half as decent as Coutinho, Mane or Lallana during their absence doesn't spell good for a club with ambitions of fighting at the continental level.

Germain made amends in added time, scoring from Thomas Lemar's assist.
