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, who scored a fantastic double. Monaco have their eighth consecutive success in Ligue 1 and are provisionally second at PSG. The pressure is on OM, which will go to Lorient on Sunday, and on Rennes, which will go to Nantes on Wednesday.

Lihadji makes one of his rare appearances

He substitutes Bamba for the remaining minute.

3 minutes of added time

Lille lowered the tone.

Djalo leaves apologizing with his hand

He was initially guilty of the first Monegasque goal. He is replaced by Bradaric.

Andre is cautioned for protests

We thought for a second that it was for Fonte, already warned.

Lille does not abdicate

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

Volland is replaced

Jean Lucas, who has played less lately, makes his entrance.

Weah knock on it

He was at a narrow angle and tried the potato with his left foot, without finding the shot.

>> Brice de Nice, their crown, Lille fans in great shape and on “vacation” …


He does it all, all by himself! The Monegasque midfielder still takes responsibility for the very long shot, and sends a heavy post. 1-2!

The people of Lille have reconciled (somewhat) with their audience

The Mastiffs have tried some long distance shots from the draw. It’s not the most exciting game of the season, but the crowd is pushing it now. It is already that.


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

Ben Yedder is replaced

Give way to Boadu right after getting a delayed yellow card.

Gomes breaks his shot too far

He could probably have moved his teammate who was coming to the right.

The VAR was used

The ball hit a Lille hand in the area. Not voluntary enough to be a sanction.

It’s the caterpillar in the ultras gallery

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 Munich side. Russian hasn’t been very important so far.

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

Source is advised

The Lille defender claimed a penalty on the previous play, where Onana had finished his game by being hit by a defender.

Small lack of precision by Lille in the opposing area

Onana hits and serves David, whose pass is a bit too long. Weah fails to shoot optimally and his shot is blocked.

Jardim releases with both fists

However, the Monegasque’s header does not seem very powerful. This strange choice will have at least allowed us to see a nice shot of Tchouameni’s scarf to cross at a brisk pace (this time the Lille goalkeeper catches the ball).

Here we go again !

No changes during the break.

0-1 in favor of Monaco on the counterattack!

LOSC came out under the boos of his audience. Tchouameni created a goal in the first period without very dangerous actions. The ASM is satisfied for the moment.


It only took one chance for the Monegasques to strike. Vanderson steals the ball from Djalo, Ben Yedder transmits to Tchouameni entering the area, small feint to open the corner from the left, shot well slammed. 0-1!

Gaius Henrique complains that he has no solutions

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

Celik is the first player to be booked

We felt that sooner or later a yellow card would come out.

It is a little more intense

And then on the pitch we see more errors and tension. We would like it to materialize in terms of the show now.

Bamba tries his luck from afar

He is well above, but confirms the good start of the Lille game.

Tchouameni slams the ball from the corner kick

He is not in goal, but Volland is very close to emerging at the far post. The German is finally a bit short, or surprised by the rebound.

Unexpected action by LOSC

André crosses, Gudmundsson leads. The former does very well in what he has to do, the latter fails to adapt as he backs away.

First quarter of an hour not very exciting

The LOSC holds the Monegasque attack quite well, also allowing itself some lag situation in front. But overall, there is a lack of opportunity, intensity … and atmosphere.

Weah still doesn’t open his goal counter

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

ASM in great shape on the outside

Monaco have won 4 of their last 5 Ligue 1 away games (1 loss), one more than their top 12 this season (D 4, L 5).

David is thrown deep

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

The LOSC is chambered by its audience

“Olé! Olé!” he rings out as Monaco spins the ball.

The first overflow is from Volland

The German fixes the center point at the far post for Vanderson, but Lille’s defense is careful.

Let’s go !

Kick-off given by Lille, in an icy atmosphere.

The players enter the lawn under some whistles

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

“You are on vacation, we too!”

This is the banner of the Lille ultras, who are in summer dress in their stands. So we should have a weird vibe tonight.

The formation of Monaco

Nübel – Aguilar, Maripan, Badiashile, Henrique – Tchouaméni, Fofana – Vanderson, Golovin – Ben Yedder, Volland.

The composition of LOSC
