Aleksandr Golovin was not on the pitch at the start of the BKT Coupe de la Ligue Round of 32 match. Leonardo Jardim had chosen to rotate his squad for this meeting and “Golo” therefore started on the bench. The unfortunate injury to Cesc Fàbregas, however, precipitated his entry into the game in the 14th minute.
Third honor of the season
Very comfortable technically and physically, he shone in the heart of midfield from his first steps on the pitch. Always available, Golovin controlled the ball to better distill his team’s style of play. He lacked only a goal to effect a complete performance, which he could have achieved at the end of the game without a good save from Mandanda. It was performance hailed by users of the AS Monaco app, who elected him MVP for the third time this season, having already done so for his performances against Nîmes (J3) and Nice (J7).
Scorers on the podium
In a highly contested vote, Aleksandr Golovin (39%) beat Jean-Kévin Augustin (28%) and Ruben Aguilar (22%), who completed the MVP podium of this match after being involved in both goals. If the month of October had started badly for the Russian international midfielder with his sending off against Montpellier, after high-flying performances with his country, then against Nantes and Marseille, he completed it in perfect fashion.
