At the Louis-II stadium, Stefan Jovetić and Kevin Volland ultimately gave AS Monaco a well-deserved victory against Brest (2-0). The Monegasques temporarily glue back to third place on the podium occupied by OL, before tonight's clash against OM.
AS Monaco 2-0 Stade Brestois 29
Goals: Jovetić (76th) and Volland (89th)
The wealth of a football team does not lie only in its starting XI, and AS Monaco can attest to this. At home, the Principality's club offered themselves a tenth success in twelve days and continued their unbeaten streak against Brest. How? 'Or' What ? Thanks in particular to Stefan Jovetić, who came into play in place of Wissam Ben Yedder less inspired than usual. After a strike to adjust his sights in front of a molten Gauthier Larsonneur, the Montenegrin international found the loophole thanks to his technical accuracy (76th, 1-0). With fifteen shots, including nine on target, Monaco deserved their victory and glued back to OL's basques (third, before their match against OM). Tempting, at lunchtime.
Hanging on by Brest, Lille loses ground / Ligue 1 (J25)
Despite their collective mastery, LOSC stumbled against a tough team from Brest this Sunday (0-0). He only keeps a small point on PSG. Christophe Galtier knows the adage: When you can't win a match, you have to know not to lose it. It's part of the journey of a season. The LOSC, which did not have its usual inspiration this Sunday against Brest, can attest to this.
Larsonneur, the return of the druid
If the sun is there to start this afternoon on the Riviera, Monaco intends to continue its radiant series of 29 points taken out of 33 possible during the last eleven days of Ligue 1. To do this, the Asemists must defuse the Brest bomb positioned in a low block. Niko Kovač's men play the game and create a first alert following a header over Aurélien Tchouaméni, served by a cake from Ruben Aguilar (20th), then a second on a strike from a well Sofiane Diop shifted by Wissam Ben Yedder. But the shooting of the French international U20 flies (26th).
Monaco continued its pressure towards the Finistère penalty area, and obtained a penalty with a hand fault from Romain Perraud in front of the stainless Aguilar. With ten goals in ten attempts since signing for AS Monaco, Ben Yedder comes in front of Gauthier Larsonneur with a lot of confidence. But the Brest goalkeeper leaves a decisive stop, for his return in the goal as holder (30th). Since his arrival in Ligue 1, Larsonneur has saved a quarter of the conceded penalties (three out of twelve) and thus regains legitimacy after the short interim of Sébastien Cibois. This rescue has the merit of waking up Brest at the end of the first period, but the recovery at the far post from Steve Mounié slips away from the frame (32nd). At the break, Ben Yedder can rethink his failure.
2021 UEFA Europa League odds, picks: European soccer insider reveals best bets for Thursday, Feb. 18
SportsLine's European soccer insider, Martin Green, reveals his best bets for Thursday, Feb. 18MONACO - NOVEMBER 21: Timo Werner of RB Leipzig celebrates scoring his sides second goal during the UEFA Champions League group G match between AS Monaco and RB Leipzig at Stade Louis II on November 21, 2017 in Monaco, Monaco.
Jovetić, the reef of too much
However, the ASM captain returns to the lawn of the Louis-II stadium with new ideas to solicit Larsonneur and his quick combination with Kevin Volland forces the keeper to take a reflex stop in front of the international tricolor (47th). The Monegasque waves continued and Caio Henrique (55th), Diop (57th) or Aguilar (58th) saw the crossbar or the impassable Larsonneur stop local attempts. It must be said that in times of storm, Brest is used to getting his ship to port. From then on, the Ty 'Zefs remained united and escaped the reefs of the Rock. Like Brendan Chardonnet, royal at the helm… Until the entry of Stefan Jovetić, killer enough to offer a deserved victory to his team. At the end of the match, Volland kills the suspense within six meters (89th, 2-0). Larsonneur may have bitter defeat: his individual copy was nearly perfect. Not enough, faced with this ever more credible ASM in the skin of a potential candidate for the podium. And in the title?
