The beginning of this encounter is marked by a lot of intensity. Both teams put commitment in the duels.
AS Monaco then looks to get Gelson Martins involved with this speed. The first alert on the goal of Stéphane Ruffier comes at 13 ‘. Radamel Falcao picks up a cross from Adrien Silva but the goalkeeper from Saint-Etienne is there. Twisting and turning from the start of the game, Gelson Martins scored the first goal with a fine his across his body. Upon receiving a pass from deep from Jemerson, the Portuguese winger controls and finds the net (1-0, 18 ‘).
Advantage for the Red and White at the break (1-0). An end of period tarnished by the exit of Subasic, forced to give way to Sy due to injury.
The Greens are putting pressure on the Monegasque camp right out of the locker room. The men of Leonardo Jardim managed to hold them back for a bit. In stride, the Red and White get a double opportunity. On a corner from Rony Lopes, Kamil Glik places a powerful header that comes crashing down on the crossbar. Naldo,who had followed well, fails to beat Ruffier (54 ‘).
Unfortunately, Ballo-Toure scored against his team a few minutes later, trying to clear a cross from Etienne (1-1, 59 ‘). Rémy Cabella then gives the advantage to Saint-Etienne, twenty minutes from the end of regulation time (1-2, 70 ‘). Nordin added a third goal for the Stephanians (1-3, 80 ‘) and Carlos Vinicius scored his first goal of the season at Stade Louis II, on a decisive pass by Gelson Martins (3-2, 90 + 2). The score will no longer change and Monegasques bow.
3 games for the Red and White to ensure they stay in Ligue 1 Conforama. Next appointment in Nimes, Saturday, May 11 at 20:00.
