AS Monaco won 3-1 against visiting Turkish side Fenerbahçe on Wednesday night at Stade Louis II, a complete turnaround from last week’s 2-1 loss in Istanbul and a 4-3 victory on aggregate in the UEFA Champions League.

ASM’s Radamel Falcao scored again this week, with a penalty shot in the 18th minute, 15 minutes after Valère Germain’s opening goal in the third, and it could have been more for the Colombian striker if it were not for a thigh injury in the 43rd minute that kept him out of the rest of the game.

When Emmanuel Emenike scored for the visitors in the 54th it looked as if the scoreline would be the same as last week, but Germain came back with his second successful shot in the 66th. In the next round, ASM could face Manchester City, Porto, Villarreal or Ajax Amsterdam.
