Before moving to Villarreal tonight in the Champions League, Monaco offered a contrasting face against Guingamp.
Monaco – Guingamp 2-2
Goals: Diallo (29th), Privat (37th); Fabinho (71th, sp), Silva (84th)
For this cover of Ligue 1, Monaco has displayed a disturbing home face. The team led by Leonardo Jardim, Falcao and Germain were absents, posted a ball high sequentially (up to 70%), but without making a difference in its final actions. Therefore, Guingamp showed early most dangerous and opened the score in the 29th minute thanks to a goal by Diallo. On a center of Briand, the player initially controlled the ball before half-volley sending the leather into the net. Then, on a cons-attack, the visitors even doubled the score. Privat, alone at the back post, will adjust an unstoppable head to Subasic. Before the break, Kylian Mbappé will give way to Bernardo Silva because of an air shock.
In a second period less technically weak, and thanks to the very good performance of Bernardo Silva, ASM will benefit from a penalty obtained by its leader. Fabinho also take the decision to shoot as well as the last season and take Johnsson against the foot. The efforts of men of Jardim will pay. With five minutes remaining, the Portuguese international will provide equalization to Monaco, on a cross from Moutinho, Dirar, alone with the keeper, offer a decisive ball to Silva. The latter, alone against two defenders will mark the left with a shot region. Monaco has not necessarily convinced, however, driven by a Bernardo Silva in a great shape, team Jardim was able to avoid a defeat that would have made the mess before qualifying game of the Champions League against Villarreal on Wednesday evening (8:45 pm).
