Monaco’s footballers have moved to within one point of Nice at the top of France’s Ligue 1 after a 6-2 win over Montpelier on Friday.
The score suggests a one-sided match, but this was far from the case during the first half. It had looked as if Monaco might underperform having played in Moscow on Tuesday in a Champions League game. Only two goals were scored in the first half, with Monaco’s coming from a free kick by Radamel Falcao, back on the team after a one month absence following a concussion injury at Nice on September 21.
AS Monaco’s next Ligue 1 game will be away against Asse next Saturday, October 29.
