First half XI: Lecomte, Dias, Jemerson, Glik (c), Sidibe, Rony Lopes, Aholou, Golovin, Boschilia, Pelé, Foster.
The first opportunity came for Monegasque Captain Kamil Glik off of a corner of Rony Lopes, but his header missed the frame (3 ‘). An attempt then came for Aleksandr Golovin as the red-and-white midfielder smashed a powerful shot from outside the area, which crashed on the crossbar (8 ‘) before coming up against the goalkeeper of Valencia, Jaume (14′).
Another attempt for AS Monaco came on a service of Aholou, when Sidibé’s shot misses the frame (18’). Valencia’s attack through Kevin Gameiro led him to Benjamin Lecomte. The Monegasque goalkeeper wins their first duel by stopping the attempt (20 ‘, 0-0). Lecomte later stopped the recovery of Kang In (22’).
Jean-Eudes Aholou recovered the ball at the feet of the defender of Valencia, producing a give-and-go with Golovin before unleashing his shot, but Jaume saves the first time around. The midfielder recovers the ball again and then tries his second shot, which was rebounded by Lyle Foster, who scored the first goal of the game (38 ‘, 1-0). AS Monaco took their lead into half-time.
After the break, Valencia gets the first chances of the second half but the two strikes pass over the arms of Lecomte (46 ‘and 50′). AS Monaco then responded via a Rony Lopes shot, but the goalkeeper Rivero stopped the attempt (55’, 1-0).
Valencia gets two free-kicks at the top of the box but both strikes go well above the goal of the Red and White (57 ‘and 59’, 1-0). Rodrigo, once again, takes over a cross of Jose Luis but Benjamin Lecomte came away with the save.
AS Monaco finishes their training camp in Switzerland on a victory against Valencia on the score of a goal to zero.
