Monaco in the big leagues

ASM signed in Montpellier this Friday as the curtain raiser for the 20th lift, a third win in a row in L1.

A month ago Monaco recorded a third consecutive defeat in the league and seemed a long way from its initial ambitions, those naturally conferred on it by its status and its history. Since then, the ASM has started a good series of invincibility, interspersed of course with a winter break, aligning this Friday a third success in a row in Ligue 1 – for a total of 13 units harvested out of 15 these last five tricks.

To achieve his ends on the lawn of Montpellier, the Principality’s club relied on its fiery offensive tandem: Volland and Ben Yedder. The first having lit the fuse in the 24th minute when the second took charge of the break before the break (35th). But also and above all the goal of victory, signed from a penalty shortly after the hour mark. A necessity since the Pailladins had the merit of never abdicating in this part then badly embarked.

MHSC, the ignition delay

The young Wahi, launched in the bath only ten minutes earlier, first sounded the Hérault revolt by striking in the wake of this third Monegasque achievement – his first goal in the elite. Then the inevitable Delort in turn made the still quivering nets tremble (2-3, 69th). Too late unfortunately for the MHSC, which is really struggling to correct the situation with its two points taken in six days. Perched now eight lengths from Montpellier now, Monaco for its part is eyeing the podium. Fourth at three lengths of the PSG-Losc tandem, expected this weekend ahead of Angers and Reims.
