Sofiane Diop named MVP of the win in Clermont
With a goal an an assist, the Monegasque number was voted MVP of the team's win in Clermont (3-1) by the Rouge et Blanc fans on the AS Monaco App.

His entry only changed the course of the match… On the bench kickoff, Sofiane Diop came on as soon as the second half started, and it didn’t take long for him to stand out with an pass ahead of Kevin Volland’s goal. Following a pass from Djibril Sidibé, the young Monegasque split the defense and slipped in Caio Henrique on the left. The fullback then crossed with one touch for the German, who finished without hesitation.

A “madjer” to seal the result

Just a moment later, he was close to delivering an assist for Gelson Martins. But his low cross at the far post was a little too heavy for the Portuguese to push the ball into the net. Full of energy, Sofiane Diop also brought a sense of verticality to the Monegasque attack before concluding the match in style with a madjer in added time, to seal the victory of AS Monaco, 3-1, with his third league goal and fourth in all competitions.


A second MVP this season
