Outside of the club there's a lot of talk about the title and some people have already started to offer congratulations.
Monaco inched closer to the Ligue 1 crown after beating Lille 4-0 on Sunday, maintaining the three point gap to defending champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The Parisian side have endured a hard season following the resurgence of Monaco under Leonardo Jardim, and they now find themselves three points behind the league leaders, who also have a game in hand over Les Rouge-et-Bleu.
Emery has now acknowledged PSG's dominance has come to an end after four seasons and he is determined to improve ahead of next campaign. Goals from Cheikh Ndoye and Karl Toko Ekambi gave the cup finalists a 2-0 win at OGC Nice as they became the first L1 team this season to take all three points from a trip to the Allianz Riviera in what was the final match staged there in 2016-17. "Mathematically they have not secured the title yet, but I congratulate them on the great job they have done".
Promoted last summer, Pablo Correa's men could be set for a speedy return to French football's second tier following their 2-0 defeat to another basement dweller, Dijon FCO.
Alonso scored an own goal one minute from time, leaving Monaco on the verge of being crowned champions after a remarkable season in which they also reached the Champions League semi-finals. "We are only thinking about Wednesday's game". "With the number of points we have we could have been champions, but it's not enough this year with the competition from Monaco".
"We have to be critical of our own performances". "It's very unlikely that Paris will score I do not know how many goals, but it's done for me".
But head coach Jardim quickly curbed any premature celebrations during his post-match news conference. Having lost nearly half of the matches played in the championship, Lille remains in the middle of the standings, though, that for two rounds to the finish line it has come off from the relegation zone by 10 points.
He is the youngest player to reach 15 league goals in Europe's top five leagues since former Golden Ball victor Michael Owen achieved the feat for Liverpool in 1998, and the first player to score in each of the first four Champions League knockout rounds he played in. "I'm asking for one final effort on Wednesday".
