PSG Must Keep Calm – Aurier

Paris Saint-Germain defender, Serge Aurier insisted his side has not begun celebrating despite having one hand on the Ligue 1 title ahead of today’s trip to Montpellier.

PSG will win its third straight Ligue 1 crown if the team claims a win or draw at Stade de la Mosson after extending its leads over the second-placed Lyon to six points last weekend.

Laurent Blanc’s side thrashed Guingamp 6-0, with Edinson Cavani netting a hat-trick and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring twice to go with his two assists.

Lyon then slumped to a shock 3-0 loss at mid-table Caen to round off a perfect weekend for the champions.

With only two matches of the season remaining, all PSG has to do is avoid defeat to either Montpellier – or Reims at home on the last day of the season – to win another title.

Aurier said the team is not getting carried away just yet, though.

“Everyone is very focused on what we have to do in these final games of the season,” he said.

“The team knows just how important this title will be and we are all pulling in the same direction.

“It’s perfect and we have to continue like this [at Montpellier].”

PSG has been in blistering Ligue 1 form recently, winning its last seven matches and scoring 26 goals in the process. Uruguay forward Cavani has starred in that run, scoring in each of the club’s last five wins, netting eight goals in total.

The match has little riding on it for Montpellier, the last team to win Ligue 1 – in 2012 – before PSG’s era of dominance started.
