Tchouameni and Monaco, winners in Lille, put pressure on OM and Rennes for the podium

Monaco wins 1-2 in Lille!

The Principality club can say a big thank you to Tchouameni, author of a fantastic double. Monaco has an 8th affiliation success in Ligue 1 and is provisionally runner-up to PSG. The pressure is on OM, who travel to Lorient on Sunday, and Rennes, who travel to Nantes on Wednesday.

Lihadji makes one of his rare appearances

He replaces Bamba for the remaining minute.

3 minutes of additional time

Lille have lowered their tone.

Djalo leaves apologizing with his hand

He was originally guilty of the first but Monegasque. He is replaced by Bradaric.

Andre is warned for protests

On a raw for a second it was for Fonte, already warned.

Lille does not abdicate

The Mastiffs fell on a too strong Tchouameni, but have the merit of continuing to try to push.

Volland is replaced

Jean Lucas, who has been playing less lately, makes his entrance.

Weah knock above

He was at a tight angle and tries the potato with his left foot, without finding the frame.

>> Brice de Nice, crown of theirs, Lille supporters in great shape and on “vacation” …


He does everything, all by himself! The Monegasque midfielder again takes responsibility for taking a very long shot, and sends a heavy post in. 1-2!

The people of Lille are reconciled (a little) with their public

The Mastiffs have attempted a few long shots since the equalizer. It’s not the most thrilling match of the season, but the public is pushing now. It’s already that.


It is his first goal in Ligue 1, but he will remember it. The Englishman hooks Maripan in the area and continues with a curling right shot that leaves Nübel on the spot. 1-1!

Ben Yedder is replaced

He gives way to Boadu just after taking a delayed yellow card.

Gomes smashes his long shot too much

He could probably have shifted his teammate who was coming on the right.

The VAR has been put to use

The ball had hit a Lille hand in the box. Not voluntary enough for it to be a sanction.

It’s the caterpillar in the gallery of the ultras

Lille fans continue their actions on the theme “You are on vacation, we are too”.

First game changes

Golovin is replaced by Jakobs on the Monaco side. The Russian hasn’t been very prominent so far.

In Lille, Angel Gomes and Zhegrova replace David and Gudmundsson.

Melting is avoided

The Lille defender was demanding a penalty for the previous action, where Onana had finished his race by being hit by a defender.

Small lack of accuracy of Lille in the opposing area

Onana hits and serves David, whose pass is a bit too long. Weah can’t shoot optimally and his strike is blocked.

Garden kicks out with both fists

However, the Monegasque’s header did not seem very powerful. This strange choice will have at least made it possible to see a nice shot from Tchouameni’s scarf to cross in stride (this time, the Lille goalkeeper captures the ball).

Here we go again !

No changes at the break.

0-1 in favor of Monaco at the break!

LOSC came out under the whistles of its public. Tchouameni created a but during a first period without very dangerous actions. The ASM is satisfied with it for the moment.


It only took one opportunity for the Monegasques to strike. Vanderson steals the ball from Djalo, Ben Yedder transmits to Tchouameni at the entrance to the area, small feint to open the angle from the left, strike well slammed. 0-1!

Caio Henrique complains that he has no solutions

The lack of movement is indeed one of the great themes of this first period.

Celik is the first warned player

We felt that a yellow card was going to come out at one point or another.

It’s a little more intense

And besides, we see more faults and tension on the pitch. We would like that to materialize in terms of a show now.

Bamba tries his luck from afar

It is well above, but it confirms the good start to the Lille match.

Tchouameni slams the ball from a corner

It’s not on target, but Volland is very close to emerging at the far post. The German is finally a little short, or surprised by the rebound.

Unexpected action by LOSC

André crosses, Gudmundsson heads. The first succeeds very well in what he has to do, the second does not manage to fit while moving back.

First quarter of an hour not very thrilling

The LOSC holds the Monegasque attack rather well, and has even allowed itself a few situations of lag in front. But overall, it lacks opportunities and intensity… and atmosphere.

Weah still does not open his goal counter

The American international had however well controlled a ball which had returned to him in the surface. Almost too well: he struggles to follow up a shot because the ball is too close to his foot, and his shot ends up in Nübel’s arms.

ASM in great shape outside

Monaco have won 4 of their last 5 trips to Ligue 1 (1 loss), one more than in the first 12 this season (4 draws, 5 losses).

David is thrown deep

From a tight angle, the Canadian tries his luck with his left foot. Nübel is not even afraid, it is largely next to it.

The LOSC is chambered by its public

“Olé! Olé!” hold back as Monaco spins the ball around.

The first overflow is from Volland

The German adjusts his center stung at the far post for Vanderson, but the Lille defense is attentive.

Let’s go !

Kick off given by Lille, in an icy atmosphere.

The players enter the lawn under a few whistles

Strange atmosphere in Lille. However, the Monegasque park is well filled.

“You are on vacation, so are we!”

This is the banner of Lille’s ultras, who are in summer dress in their stands. So we should have a strange atmosphere tonight.
