PSG Wins Ligue 1 With 9-0 Thrashing Of Troyes

Paris Saint-Germain won its fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title in stunning style on sunday, thrashing Troyes 9-0 in a club-record league victory.
Edinson Cavani, Javier Pastore and Adrien Rabiot had the champion’s three goals up within 19 minutes against the bottom-of-the table hosts.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic moved past 100 Ligue 1 goals with a stunning hat-trick in under 10 minutes at the start of the second half, before Matthieu Saunier’s own goal and a Cavani rebound from his own missed penalty piled the misery on Troyes, who ended with 10 men after Lossemy Karaboue’s red card.
Ibrahimovic added his fourth of the afternoon with two minutes left as PSG emphatically pulled 25 points ahead of second-placed Monaco with eight matches remaining, sealing the club’s sixth Ligue 1 crown.
Laurent Blanc’s men will now set their sights on an historic quadruple, with their hopes in the Champions League, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue still alive after a league campaign that has seen them win 24, draw five and lose just one of their 30 games.
