Lacazette “sorry for the followers”
Alexandre Lacazette on Prime Video: “We had one more day to prepare. I think we could have done better, but that’s part of football. We’re going to work well this week for next weekend.”
“It’s really not what we wanted. I feel sorry for the fans, for everyone. But we’ll try to work our way back.”
Finished ! Monaco will have stood firm!
The ASM win this clash at the end of the cliffhanger and go on for a third win in a row! OL seems to have woken up too late to hope for anything better, after giving up on two set pieces. Monaco can thank their central defenders, Badiashile and Maripan, who are goalscorers. Toko Ekambi closed the gap for Lyon.
Big pressure for ASM
There are still a few seconds to play and maybe another tie or two in the Monaco box…
What an opportunity again for visitors! After a very dangerous center on the ground, Dembélé sees his head pass a few centimeters from the crossbar.

Cardboard for Lacazette
He is punished for using his hands in a duel.
Lyon can’t do it
Despite the decidedly aggressive changes, OL failed to worry Nübel again. ASM is headed for a third straight victory.
Boss changes everything
Mendes and Lepenant are replaced by Cherli and Reine-Adelaïde. Expect system change, therefore.
Injured, he was replaced position by position by Aguilar.
The Monegasque piston goes out of bounds and should not be able to hold its place.
The game is (almost) over.
With a two-goal lead, ASM has a lot to do as of now, even if OL can score at any time, especially on quick transitions.
Golovin close to 3-0
Golovin attempts a wicked forehand spin with the little bounce just before the line. He goes to the right of the goal.
The second scorer comes out
Maripan is substituted for Sarr during the last twenty minutes of the game.
The Lyon defender picked up the first card of the match for having cut off Embolo’s run, which started deep.
Monaco doubles the bet, again from set pieces! Henrique finds Maripan’s header, free of any marking, in a free kick stopped far from the goal. The Chilean shakes the nets for his 100.
Give way to Dembélé, who will provide extra weight in attack.
Les Gones accuse the hit
The visitors no longer manage to get close to the opposing goal. Bosz will make changes to try to reverse the situation.
Despite a better start to the second half, Lyon failed to find the foul and were penalized on one of the few rivalry occasions since the restart.

Golovin looks for the skylight
The Russian roll does not find the opposite skylight when Lopes had not moved. He was out of the game anyway.
Great pressure from Lyon
The ball no longer leaves the Monegasque field, even if Golovin has a chance to counter, wasted by a failed pass.
After a slight fight in the opposite area, Lacazette took advantage of the opportunity with his back to the goal. His shot is repelled by the Monegasque defense.
Lyon resumed the game by taking over the opposite half, earning a first corner.
He’s back in Monaco!
The second period begins in Louis-II.
0-0 at halftime in this pleasant first half. If ASM got the best chance by hitting the post, both teams in turn got several hot chances. Everything remains to be done in this rhythmic clash that keeps all its promises.

Head shots up
On a counterattack, Lacazette serves Tetê from the left, whose hard shot sails just over the Monegasque goal.

Start this shock in about ten minutes!
Fofana celebrated for its hundredth
The midfielder recently played his 100th game for Monaco, which he has been defending since January 2020.
a balanced story
Monaco and Lyon will meet for the 112th time in Ligue 1. The rojiblancos have a total of 46 wins against 41 successes for Lyon, for 24 draws. It should be noted that this is the most disputed poster between two current teams in the championship.
Two teams looking for redemption
Defeated in Lorient this week (1-3), OL must restart a series to keep in touch with the podium. Les Gones could once again be within a point of Lens, third. For its part, Monaco remains with two narrow wins in Nice and Belgrade (1-0 each time) but is only 11th in the championship with 2 small wins in 6 games.
