Paris Saint-Germain reclaimed the Ligue 1 title this evening courtesy of a 7-1 drubbing of league rivals Monaco at the Parc des Princes.

The Brazil worldwide required surgery after suffering the injury in the Ligue 1 win over Marseille in February and has since missed the French giants' last nine matches in all competitions.

Rudi Garcia's Marseille remain level on points with third-placed Lyon, who occupy the final Champions League spot, while Monaco are four points ahead of the chasing duo.

Yet, despite PSG easing to the Ligue 1 and Coupe de la Ligue titles, with the chance of Coupe de France glory still to come, such domestic success is unlikely to be enough to save Unai Emery's job, with the Basque coach's expiring contract not expected to be renewed.

PSG could wrest the Ligue 1 Conforama title back from AS Monaco with victory over the principality side this Sunday, and although Neymar won't be there to watch proceedings, he is expected back soon.

"Our great goal is the Champions League; it's not easy but we're going to work hard for it".
