Tehran Times - - WORLD SPORTS -

Monaco will re­im­burse sup­port­ers who trav­elled to Parc des Princes for Sun­day’s 7-1 de­mo­li­tion at the hands of Paris Saint-Ger­main.

Unai Emery’s side re­claimed the ti­tle from Monaco with a dev­as­tat­ing vic­tory, in which Gio­vani Lo Celso and An­gel Di Maria scored twice, along­side strikes from Edin­son Ca­vani and Ju­lian Draxler and a Radamel Fal­cao own goal.

Monaco con­firmed via their Twit­ter ac­count that they would of­fer re­funds to fans who made the long trip from the Prin­ci­pal­ity to the French cap­i­tal.

The re­sult put PSG 17 points clear at the top of the ta­ble with only five games re­main­ing, while Monaco re­main four points above Lyon and Mar­seille in third and fourth.

Vice-pres­i­dent Vadim Vasi­lyev de­scribed the de­feat as a “dis­as­ter sce­nario”, adding: “The only ones who were up to the task were our sup­port­ers and I thank them.

“They backed the team, but we couldn’t do any­thing. We’ll do ev­ery­thing to make them proud in the next match.”
