Monegasques are precise

Only 12 shots for Monaco, during this match won 4-1 on the lawn of Saint-Etienne.

But Philippe Clement's players were surgical, scoring three goals from their six shots on target.

They were also helped by Timothée Kolodziejczak, who scored an own goal (61st).

ASM did not need to force his talent on Geoffroy-Guichard.

ASM power 4

Four Monegasque goals, four actions from the sides.

A bit of a shame against a five-man defense and yet.

It is first Caio Henrique, who, from his left lane, admits a center back perfect for Ben Yedder (22nd).

Bis Repetita

three minutes later, but on the other side, with a pass from Gelson Martins for Kevin Volland (25th).

Only 148 seconds separate the first two Monegasque goals.

In the second period, Monaco insists on the left and it works twice.

Timothée Kolodziejczak takes a ball from Ismail Jakobs and plants against his camp (61st).

The German winger decisive passer for Myron Boadu a few minutes later (77th).

Khazri always him

His tenth goal in Ligue 1 this season, for the one who had scored only twice in the league since January 1.

Wahbi Khazri perfectly converted the penalty, whistled after a foul by Aurélien Tchouameni on Mahdi Camara (42nd).

In the game, the captain of the Greens weighed with in particular three balls recovered and three faults suffered.


Greens supporters spoil the party

A boiling cauldron tonight, but sometimes too much.

While the atmosphere was festive at the start of the match, the situation quickly deteriorated.

Many smoke cracked, giving way to intense smoke on the ground.

But little by little, rockets and fireworks were launched.

A first interruption of a few minutes after the Stéphane goal, just before the break.

A second final interruption shortly after the hour mark, forcing all the players to return to the locker room under the orders of Bastien Dechepy.

The match eventually resumed after a 34-minute hiatus.

The Saint-Etienne defense still can't do it

Three goals conceded in an hour of play, including two in less than three minutes.

In a boiling and noisy Geoffroy-Guichard, the local defense again took on water in the first period, leaving the opponents to do what they wanted on the sides.

Five players in defense, but air pockets on all sides.

Quite maddening.

In the second period, it was Timothée Kolodziejczak who tripped over the carpet and scored another own goal, when there was no pressure.

Quite symptomatic of the lack of confidence among ASSE defenders.

This defense never seemed calm during this meeting, even at 0-0.

Monaco too wait-and-see

The ASM players dropped their foot too quickly after scoring the break goal, even after the Stéphanois reduced the gap.

They left the ball to their opponents, waiting and proceeding on the other hand.

A bit of a shame to play like this when you're aiming for the podium against a team that plays for maintenance.

We can also regret the defensive changes of Philippe Clément, replacing Gelson Martins by Djibril Sidibé after the break, then Aleksandr Golovin by Ismail Jakobs on the hour mark. The Monegasques however recovered after the interruption of the match.
