Comfortable “double” for Monaco and… top!


Monaco out of the derby. 3-1 away win for the Monegasques against Reims for the 8th matchday of the Championnat. Hitter’s team reached their goal quite easily, perhaps even easier than the final score indicates. He actually struggled until he opened the scoring in the 42nd minute with Jacobs.

At the start of the second half, Monaco laid solid foundations for the “double”, coming from a 3-2 win over Marseille. Back from the break, Balogan made it 0-2, and before the celebrations died down, Ben Gender grabbed his team’s 3rd goal and personal 5th of the season in eight appearances.

Teuma reduced it in the 57th minute with a penalty, but nothing changed until the finale and Monaco more or less reached their goal, continuing the tradition they have built over the last decade at this stadium, where they have lost just once.

Nice beat Metz 1-0 at home with a 14th-minute goal from Boudaoui to record their fourth win in their last five games and stay within -1 of Monaco. In addition, they remain unbeaten in Ligue 1.
