Monaco tames Troyes, Lille and Nantes delayed in Angers and Brest

In the race for Europe, the Monegasques performed a great operation, reaching the end with difficulty of the Trojans, who remained without defeat in five encounters (3 wins, 2 draws). And this time they didn’t need Wissam Ben Yedder. They opened the scoring with a free kick, full axis and 25 meters away, from Caio Henrique, misjudged by Jessy Moulin (19th).

But the Aubois reacted well and it was again Iké Ugbo who equalized. Arriving on the last day of the winter transfer window, rented from Genk, the Canadian international scored his 3rd goal in 7 games, with a very nice attack from 18 meters (39th). Only they burst in the second half, when Kevin Volland, with an excellent run in the penalty area, scored 49 seconds after coming into play, replacing Myron Boadu (57th).

Thus, ASM (6th) returns to one point behind Strasbourg (4th) and Nice (5th), who have one game less, and takes two from LOSC, holding on to Angers (1-1).

Lille was a bit disappointed at the Raymond-Kopa stadium. Continuing to move on three successes and not conceding a goal in seven games, the Angevins put an end to this double streak.

The SCO also opened the scoring when Souleyman Doumbia’s center, from the left, was taken over by Tiago Djalo… in own goal (64th). This twist of fate did not prevent the Northerners from returning and at least continuing a series, that of invincibility, now increased to eight matches. Indeed, Edon Zhegrova, who came into play in place of Jonathan David (66th), equalized with his powerful left foot, after transplanting on his right side, as the Kosovar loves to do (74th).

Seven days before the end, Lille remains 7th, after the draw from Nantes (8th) in Brest (1-1) and awaiting the stage from Lyon (9th) to Strasbourg, this Sunday (7pm).

This mid-table encounter was ruined by the unacceptable behavior of certain supporters, both from Brest and Nantes. In the first period it was interrupted for a while because of smoke jets. Especially shortly after the break, the intrusion on the lawn of a Breton fan and the desire of some others to follow him, prompted referee Johan Hamel to take everyone back to the dressing room for thirteen minutes.

Otherwise there was a competition, quite rhythmic. The Nantes opened the scoring thanks to two of their youngsters: Randal Kolo Muani superbly took over Quentin Merlin’s (11th) left cross for the future Frankfurt striker’s 12th goal. Then they got the chance to break. Failing that, captain Brendan Chardonnet equalized for the Finisterians by tackling the ball 5.5 meters from Steve Mounié’s head on a corner from Youcef Belaïli (67th). What frustrates the two coaches friends, Nantes Antoine Kombouaré and Brestois Michel Der Zakarian, whose team has been unsuccessful at home three times (1 point).
