An absolute feast. The visitors had the ball in the net four times at the Matmut Atlantique against Bordeaux on Saturday afternoon (0-4). There were hints of a spectacular evening ahead inside the 2nd minute when Djibril Sidibé opened the scoring. Those hints were soon confirmed in the 4th minute, when Radamel Falcao made it 2-0 after a perfect move orchestrated by Silva, Germain, and then El Tigre himself, who displayed all his accuracy in the box.
Danijel Subasic had a fairly quiet game overall, but did thwart the Girondins with a fantastic save from Ounas (31 mins). After controlling the end of the first half in masterful style, the Red & Whites then produced a repeat performance in the second with a pulsating start that produced a goal. Another exemplary move saw Lemar lay on a fine through pass for Germain, who laid the ball off for El Tigre to beat the ‘keeper and finish with aplomb (50 mins).
Facing the team against whom he scored his first ever Ligue 1 goal back in 2013, Radamel Falcao even had the luxury of sealing a hat-trick from the penalty spot, after the frustrated Pallois fouled Silva (63 mins). The brilliant win sees Leonardo Jardim provisionally snatck back top spot in Ligue 1, ahead of Sunday night’s meeting between PSG and OGC Nice (20.45). AS Monaco also continue to rack up the goals, with a total of 53 scored in Ligue 1 this season, and a frankly immense goal difference of +37!
