Mbappe sparks Monaco
Teen prodigy Kylian Mbappe scored his 10th league goal of the campaign as Monaco beat Bordeaux 2-1 on Saturday to cement their place at the top of Ligue 1.
Mbappe opened the scoring midway through the second half at the Stade Louis II and a beauty from Joao Moutinho doubled the principality side’s lead.
They held on to take all three points after a howler from goalkeeper Danijel Subasic allowed Diego Rolan in to reduce the arrears.
Monaco, who will look to overturn a 5-3 first-leg deficit when they host Manchester City in their Champions League last 16, second leg on Wednesday, are five points clear of local rivals Nice at the top with nine games left.
However, Paris Saint-Germain can go back up to second and cut Monac o’s lead b ack to thre e points with a win at bottom club Lorient in a late match yesterday in their first outing since their Champions League humiliation in Barcelona.
