J. Pignard. TA: Angban (65 ‘)


Match played at the Stade Louis II.

It cost more than the account to the Monegasques, who came from endorsing four goals to Metz in domestic competition and tAll predicted another comfortable game for Kovac’s pupils. And more when, after two minutes, Gelson Martins already had the first one. However, the forces were equalized and the visiting team knew how to counter the attacks of the Monegasques, and Jovetic, in the final section, had the clearest when he hit the crossbar.

Until the inevitable was reached. To the penalty shootout. They all scored theirs when Maiga, a Metz player, made a mistake. Fabregas scored and it was useless for Bronn to send the leather to the bottom of the nets, because Jovetic, with the pressure that shot had, did not miss. Monaco, to quarters. And tomorrow more Cup.
