Strasbourg down to earth to Monaco

Nothing is forever. He found out (if he didn’t know) the Monaco this Wednesday when he was defeated at home to the Strasbourg (1-0). It was in a painful way, to fit in the added time that it was the only goal of the match, but it should be noted that not unfair, because by merits made by those of Niko Kovac they were inferior to their rival. The Monegasque team did not know the feeling of losing so far in 2021, having chained up to 12 consecutive matches of League 1 without losing, but the Strasbourg woke him up from his dream.

The control of the ball, however, was of the Monaco. Almost 70% of the possession accumulated those of Kovac, although without fluency or the rhythm necessary to surprise a Strasbourg that, very well planted on the green, was at all times very dangerous on the counterattack, putting in check on more than one occasion to Lecomte.

Knowing the result of the match, it is logical to assert that the Monaco should have raised the meeting in another way, but the truth is that he left the Stade de la Meinau of vacuum for very little. Because it was already in the added time when Guilbert, who grabbed the ball in his own field, advanced to the edge of the area to send a direct left-foot to the net from there. 1-0 and shortly after final whistle to the uneasiness of Monaco.

These three points are golden for him Strasbourg, which expands its mattress with respect to the drop zone up to 8 points, while the Monaco remains 4th, 7 of a Lille that did not fail this Wednesday before the Marseilles.
