Monaco had no feelings against Montpellier.

Monaco has definitely launched its season. After a difficult start, the princely club registered a fifth consecutive success in Ligue 1 against Montpellier (0-2), this Sunday, during matchday 10. Efficient and solid, the formation of Le Rocher consolidates its 5th place and puts pressure on the leading teams in this sprint until the World Cup.

Plunger breaks the lock

Under ideal conditions, the two teams showed a similar level. If the occasions were lacking, the duels were especially tough, like the opposition between the imposing Embolo and Jullien. Over time, physical combat intensified on both sides, but defenses trumped uninspired attacks.

Aside from a sudden strike from Caio Henrique, well repelled by Omlin, Monaco struggled to make a difference in the final third of the field. Opposite, the power of Wahi and the liveliness of Nordin could upset this first period but the Asmista rearguard fell back well. Just before the break, Embolo, lurking after a too long check by Ben Yedder, shot Omlin with a strong shot under the crossbar (0-1, 45º+1).

When they returned from the locker room, Montpellier pushed hard to come back. Savanier, from free kick, and Nordin, from medium height, made Nbel break out in a cold sweat. Little advanced, the mongascos suffered the contrary attacks, more and more regular but that lacked precision to disturb the German goalkeeper. In the first attack of the second period, Ben Yedder lost his duel with Omlin.

A first alert… before the sanction. Boadu, coming on in place of Embolo, tricked Omlin into a cross from Caio Henrique. A goal validated by the VAR (0-2, 80). An achievement that definitively sank the inhabitants of Montpellier without being able to frame the slightest shot in this part. With this fifth consecutive victory in the league, ASM start their season earlier than in previous years. We will have to count on Philippe Clement’s band.

The match score: 5.5/10

A very committed game with many muscular duels. Technically, the match left a lot to be desired although Monaco withdrew from the game being lethal on their rare occasions. Not a great show overall.

The objectives :

– Launched by Vanderson, Akliouche crossed to the area. At reception, Ben Yedder, who lacks control but sees Embolo following well. At the penalty spot, the Swiss striker shoots Omlin with a strong shot under the crossbar (0-1, 45º+1).

– Shifted to the left by Golovin, Caio Henrique sends a magnificent cross behind the Hérault defenders. At the reception, Boadu, who stretches his foot to overtake Omlin (0-2, 80th).

Players NOTES

Maxifoot has assigned a score (out of 10) comments to each player.

Man of the match: Axel Disasi (7.5/10)

Very big play by the Mongasco vice-captain. First moved by the powerful Wahi, the center-back recovered perfectly to turn off his vis-vis. If Monaco did not concede the slightest shot on goal, it is, above all, because the former Rmois player knew how to position himself to hinder his rivals.


Jonas Omlin (5): defeated at close range by Embolo, he is not impeccable in Boadu’s goal with a poor reading of Caio Henrique’s cross. It’s a shame because he had been decisive on several occasions.

Enzo Tchato Mbiayi (5): average. The right back was little used by the Mongascos but he still lacked aggressiveness against Caio Henrique in Boadu’s goal. Replace minute 82 with Falaye Sacko (no no).

Christopher Jullien (5.5): The former Toulouse player had a great duel with Embolo, which he eventually lost. However, he gave the Swiss forward a lot of trouble.

Maxime Esteve (5): Montpellier’s central defender was constantly in trouble in this part. Quickly warned, he walked on eggshells to avoid expulsion. Embolo gave him headaches for over an hour.

Nicolás Cozza (5): a disappointment. Located to the left of the defense, the player trained in the club also lacked sacrifice and bite. He is too lax in the action leading up to the first goal.

Jordan Ferri (5): The midfielder who passed through Lyon found it difficult to respond to the physical challenge imposed on him by Camara and Fofana. He made little contribution to their mounting attempts. Replace minute 82 with Valre Germain (no no).

Joris Chotard (5): The Blueberry gave Nbel the chills with a tense shot over the crossbar. But in the impact of the game, he also missed his date. Replace minute 82 with Khalil Fayad (no no).

Arnaud Nordin (6): The former ASSE player was forceful in his lane causing serious problems for Caio Henrique. He is close to equalizing in the locker room lap in a mid-height shot. He didn’t blush at his performance. Replace minute 62 with Maouassa casserole (no no).

Tji Savanier (5): A good start to the match with good starts for Wahi and Nordin, then much more difficulty getting rid of the pressure from Mongasque. He came close to scoring on a free throw after returning from the locker room.

Stephy Mavididi (5): back from injury, the English striker was restless without being able to make a difference in his band. It was pretty well contained by Vanderson. Replace minute 62 with Wahbi Khazri (no no).

Elye Wahi (6): The club’s top scorer made an interesting copy with great duels against Disasi and Badiashile. He spoke to the power of him to keep the Mongasco bloc under control. However, we saw much less of him in Montpellier’s period of dominance after the break. Shame.


Alexander Nbel (5): the German goalkeeper had nothing to do. And for good reason, Montpellier did not score the slightest goal in this match. A calm day.

Vanderson (6): correct performance of the Brazilian right back. He is the origin of the first goal that Embolo signed with an authoritative rise in his lane.

Axel Disasi (7.5): read comment above.

Benot Badiashile (6.5) – Fairly solid overall, the Monegasque central defender, however, was shaken a few times by Wahi. He received a yellow card for a late tackle after the break, which spoiled his performance a bit.

Caio Henrique (5): The Brazilian left back had a difficult day. Although he has the first chance for his team, the mongasque has suffered a lot defensively. He saves his match with a good decisive pass to Boadu in the last quarter of an hour. Replace minute 84 with Ismal Jacobs (no no).

Maghnes Akliouche (5): Timid match for the young Mongasque who, however, finds himself behind Embolo’s goal before the break with a cross in the box that is difficult to defend. Replace minute 46 with Krpin Diatta (5)who tried to bring danger to his lane without making too many differences.

Mohamed Camara (7): After his great game in the Park, the Malian midfielder is slowly but surely climbing the hill. Highly effective at recovery, he spent the day successfully harassing Hrault’s circles. He tried his luck when he could, forcing Omlin to make a save on a wide shot.

Youssouf Fofana (7): The French international confirms his very good start to the season with another quality start. He was also good at recovery and calm in his transmissions to his attackers. A safe value.

Aleksandr Golovin (6) – Positioned on the left flank, the Russian attacking midfielder has worked hard to try to lend a hand to his defence. However, we expect much more from such a good player that he always strives to show all his talent. He is still involved in the second goal with his turn for Caio Henrique.

Breel Embolo (7): Even so, Monaco did a great deal to win back the Swiss striker for just 12.5 million euros… Impressive with his back to goal, he fought an all-out duel with Jullien. He is rewarded before the break with a heavy hit under the bar to show his team the way. Another complete game for him. Replace minute 72 with Myron Boadu (no no)scorer on his first try.

Wissam Ben Yedder (5): The Monegasque captain has been less prominent than in his last outings. Little dangerous, he participated in his way in the opening of the Embolo marker with a too long control over Akliouche’s center. Replace minute 87 with Takumi Minamino (not).
