the RCL (re)makes the break


Nübel went off on the wrong foot, and the shot from the Ivorian was very heavy anyway. 1-3!


The Sang et Or remain high after a corner. Sotoca feints in the area and collapses when Embolo stretches his leg.

Lens spins the ball

Sequence of possession to calm down the little Monegasque ardor at the start of the second period.

Here we go again !

With a change at the break on the Monegasque side. Rookie Mohamed Camara makes his debut with ASM. He replaces Matazo.

It’s the break, Lens leads 1-2 in Monaco!

This ambitious duel with a very open game keeps all its promises! The Lensois seemed a little better and made the break, but the third goal of the match was Monegasque and everything is still possible. In any case, we ask for more.

It’s still beautiful Lens when it comes alive…

Another magnificent action, with a final delicious discount for Sotoca whose shot is too crossed.


The match really got going, and the Monegasque striker was moved into the box but saw his shot finally blocked by a defender.


It’s complicated in the game for ASM, but Badiashile is still just as dominant on set pieces and goes for a corner from Henrique very high. 1-2!

The referee makes the sign “It was the ball”

A sign normally reserved for players who have just snatched the ball, but also the opponent’s leg. The goal is validated by the video, while Embolo is warned for dispute.


The Colombian powerfully steals a ball from Vanderson, who stays on the ground. Machado arrives launched in front of the goal and hits hard in the small net. 0-2!

Samed also touches a lot of balls

It is necessarily lower and a little more neutral than Da Costa, but the former Clermont is very active and a real hub in possession.

Pereira Da Costa shines

He really leads the Lensois game, accelerating it when necessary and attempting decisive passes as soon as he can.

Catastrophic Monegasque combination

Henrique shifts the ball to Minamino a meter further, who stops the leather for a center from the Brazilian side who therefore no longer has as much momentum and yet sends a center too long directly in six meters.

David Trezeguet is present in the stands

One of the French world champions passed by Monaco.

Midfield shot attempt

Vanderson’s attempt largely misses Samba’s goal, who quickly stopped running back.


What a Lensoise action once again, part of the goalkeeper and concluded by a center back for the Ivorian international. His shot misses the post.

Samba verbally warned

The Lensois goalkeeper takes too long to play a six-meter, already.


What a gesture of finesse from Embolo, who sticks a small bridge in the area and centers back for Minamino. The Japanese stumbles on Samba, and the Monegasque present on the rebound cannot manage to frame.

A few approximations to the revival on the Lens side

It is already the second, even if Monaco is not technically fair enough either to take advantage of it.

Monaco tries to react

Even if there is an offensive foul on a ball put into the area from a free kick.


And what a magnificent goal, not so much for the finish (at the far post in an empty goal) as for the construction: high recovery, perfect ball to launch David da Costa, impeccable assist. 0-1!

Diatta rushes a bit too much

His volley goes wide wide of the goal. We forgive him, however, since we saw in Strasbourg that he could score in this situation.

Minamino tries to juggle dribble in the box

The Japanese technically misses and is caught. He might have been able to shoot faster if he had chained better on the cross.

The Lensois parking lot really puts a nice atmosphere

The first attack is for Racing, but Costa’s pass for Machado is a bit too long.

Let’s go !

The Blood and Gold, in black and green, kick off.

The players arrive on the lawn

Beautiful atmosphere set in particular by a very well filled parking lot, which sang La Lensoise.
