Aleksandr Golovin is the MVP of the 102nd derby against Nice
He is making a very big comeback! Back as a regular in the AS Monaco team since their big win against Paris Saint-Germain (3-0), Aleksandr Golovin has been a big part of the five straight wins obtained by the club in Ligue 1. Already the author of a superb assist for Vanderson against Rennes (3-2), five days earlier, the Tsar once again showed his formidable efficiency in the 102nd Côte d’Azur derby against OGC Nice.
A fox in the box
Scoring the only goal of the match in added time in the first half, the Monegasque number 17 proved that he could also be an opportunist, in addition to being a magnificent distributor of the ball. On a cross from the Brazilian winger, badly cleared by Walter Benitez, Golo’ was perfectly placed to put the ball in the back of the net and thus give the lead which would prove definitive for AS Monaco (1-0, 45th+2). It was a real poacher’s goal, his third this season in the league, and also his second against Les Aiglons, to which he’s added four assists.
