By winning on the lawn of Bordeaux this Sunday (3-0), AS Monaco follows the rhythm of the two leading teams and is sure to keep its 3rd place in the standings at the end of this 33rd day of Ligue 1 .
After the Lille draw on Friday and the victory of Paris Saint-Germain this Sunday, AS Monaco had to win on the lawn of the Girondins de Bordeaux to get closer to the two leading teams. At Matmut Atlantique, the Monegasques did not tremble and easily won (3-0) thanks to goals from Kevin Volland (29th), Gelson Martins (47th) and Stevan Jovetic (90th). After crushing Saint-Étienne (4-0) and Metz (4-0) during the last two days, Monaco continues.
Niko Kovac’s players can now clearly believe in the title of champion of France. If the Croatian coach has been saying for several weeks that he is only aiming for a qualification for the European Cup, his team is now only two points behind the Lille leader. The Principality’s club is above all in an incredible dynamic, and will keep its 3rd place at the end of this 33rd day of Ligue 1, despite the Lyon match this Sunday evening in Nantes (9 p.m.). Monaco will also play a decisive match in this final sprint, at home against OL, on Matchday 35.
