Alex Nübel is the MVP of the win over Red Star Belgrade

Alex Nübel is the MVP of the win over Red Star Belgrade
After making five saves, the Monegasque goalkeeper helped his team record a clean sheet and to leave Serbia with three points (0-1). He was then voted MVP of the match on the AS Monaco App.

He was a real wall when facd with the Belgrade side’s attacks! Unbeatable on Thursday during the first matchday of the group stage of the Europa League against Red Star, Alexander Nübel was one of the great architects of AS Monaco’s victory by the score of 1-0. He was therefore elected MVP of the match on the AS Monaco App, finishing ahead of striker Breel Embolo.

Three big saves

Making a total of five saves, the Rouge et Blanc goalkeeper denied the Serbian attackers in turn. He first saved with his legs – like a handball goalkeeper – an attempt from close range by Osman Bukari (41′) then he cleared off his line a direct free kick from Aleksandar Katai (61′).

And while the match seemed to be heading for a Monegasque victory, he once again played the hero in added time. On a corner which was very well taken, Nemanja Nimulovic eluded his man and got off a powerful header. The effort did not trouble him as he made a huge save on his line (90 + 1′).

A second clean sheet in a row!

These three massive saves allowed him to record another clean sheet, only four days after doing the same away to OGC Nice. He could only be satisfied about it after the game. “It’s always nice not to concede a goal, because when you don’t concede, you can’t lose! (smiles). More seriously, it’s important because it can matter in goal difference at the end. I’m happy!”

It is therefore totally expected to see Alex Nübel voted MVP of our trip to Serbia. The Monegasque goalkeeper has now won his second MVP of the season after doing the same against Troyes. Bravo Alex! 🧱🇩🇪
