Monaco - Metz: At home, Monaco for a walk, Metz in the hard -
Monaco Metz at the Louis II stadium for the 31st day of Ligue 1. Victory without appeal and without suspense for the men of Kovac, on the score of 4 to 0, against Metz.
Very satisfying game for Ben Yedder, who finished with a brace.
If Kovac's team was placed in classic 4-4-2, with Volland and Jovetic in attack to start the meeting, Antonetti asked his Metz team to position themselves in 3-4-3, with a duo Gueye- Yade in attack.
No goals were scored in the first half.
The principality's club opened the scoring in the 50th by Fàbregas, from the penalty spot.
Immediately after, in the 52nd, the Monegasques scored a new goal through Volland.
Ben Yedder managed to cheat the keeper, scoring the third goal of the game.
The French player repeated in the 89th from the penalty spot, concluding the match: with a goal in quick succession, he will have scored the match.
This meeting between the two teams was tense.
The referee gave Kouyaté, Caillard and Yade a yellow card.
Exclusion of Boye: following two cards taken in turn (85th and 88th), he left his team to continue the match in reduced numbers.

Metz remains in 9th position, ahead of Montpellier.
