Ben Yedder saves Monaco

Niko Kovac’s Monegasques snatch a point against Lorient (2-2) on Sunday. 0comment The Monegasques of Niko Kovac snatch a point against Lorient (2-2) on Sunday. The day after OL’s defeat against Montpellier (1-2), it was AS Monaco who was on the verge of falling at home when FC Lorient (2-2) came on Sunday in the part of the 25th day of Ligue 1. Niko Kovac’s men snatched a point in added time to remain unbeaten, their last defeat dating back to December 16 (8 wins in 10 games since). Before PSG-Monaco… The Rouge et Blancs however perform a bad operation, since they come back (only) 3 lengths from the Lyonnais, 3rd, and have 5 points less than the PSG and the Losc (which faces Brest at 5pm) and this, one week away from going to the Parc des Princes! It’s an understatement to say that ASM has everything to lose in the title race next weekend. .pepsia {margin-bottom: 15px; } The Monegasques have this time disappointed in the game. They came up against Merlus well grouped in 5-4-1, despite their system in the offensive phase now well established, with this 3-4-2-1 asking Kevin Volland and Sofiane Diop play between the lines in support of Wissam Ben Yedder. It must be said that, from the start, Yoane Wissa was broke by Benjamin Lecomte and Terem moffi opened the scoring from the penalty spot (7th). The incredible Moffi! It is on a penalty, for an unfortunate hand of Houboulang Mendes, that Ben Yedder equalized after returning from the locker room (48th). Stevan Jovetic was launched in place of Krépin Diatta for the second half, replacing Volland on the right wing, but the Lorientais held on and the overpowered Moffi scored again, after overtaking Benoît Badiashile (62nd). For his 8th goal in 12 shots on target this season! Monaco will hardly have known how to worry Matthieu Dreyer, the FCL goalkeeper, over the minutes of the second half but, on a final long ball after extra time, a discount from Badiashile allowed Ben Yedder to equalize (93rd) . The French international is now 13 goals, but it is in a week, in Paris, that he will have to save his team. Read also:
