Before the Red and Whites go to Montpellier this Saturday at 20h, we went into the archives for this magnificent goal by Ludovic Giuly. It allowed AS Monaco to lead after 14 minutes of play, but an own goal by Sébastien Squillaci allowed the hosts to equalize five minutes later.

This level score held until the end of regulation, but after three minutes of extra time Ludovic Giuly sealed the fate of the match by scoring his second! The Monaceo captain perfectly exploited Shabani Nonda’s pass, on an action initiated by Souleymane Camara.
Almost 17 years later, the Senegalese striker trained by AS Monaco still plays in Ligue 1 and participates this season in his thirteenth consecutive season in the jersey of Montpellier!
