The Red & Whites have avoided the trap of the Cup and start 2019 with a win. They won 1-0 against Canet-en-Roussillon this Sunday afternoon. It was Moussa Sylla who scored the winning goal, in the second minute of play after a nice job from Barreca on the left side. The locals quickly saw their task become complicated. Lopy was quickly sent off for a dangerous challenge on Sylla (18th).
In stoppage time, the Canetois tried one last effort to get back into it, but it wasn’t meant to be. It should be noted that this first game of the year allowed Naldo to make his first appearance in the Monaco jersey. In addition, Rony Lopes and Robert Navarro returned to the field after extended absences. The club next plays Rennes on Wednesday in the Coupe de la Ligue, for a place in the semifinals.
