Monaco easily won 4-0 at the expense of a weak team from Saint-Etienne, without spring, Friday at the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium on behalf of the 30th day of Ligue 1. Thanks to this easy success, the men of Niko Kovac come back one point from Lyon and PSG and put a little more pressure on these two teams, who face each other on Sunday night for a game that is so important in the title race.
Thanks to goals from Jovetic, Tchouaméni, Diop and Diatta, the Monegasques did not even have to force their talent against a team from Saint-Etienne to pick up, the Greens having sometimes given the impression of fighting in the empty.
Monaco scares the competition
Once again overwhelmed by cases of Covid-19 after positive tests on Jessy Moulin, replaced in the cages by the young Bajic (19 years old, 2nd match in Ligue 1), Arnaud Nordin and Adil Aouchiche, the Stéphanois have not was able to stand the comparison with their much superior opponent and the game much smoother.
They could not create any opportunity to worry the Monegasque defense (2 shots on target), increasingly solid, which has conceded only one goal in its last six matches in the league.
It is not the first time that it has been said, but in terms of dynamics in the title race, ASM is the most interesting and perhaps the most dangerous team of the quartet they form with the Losc, Lyon and PSG.
