Monaco take step closer to French ti­tle

New Straits Times - - Sport -

PARIS Tiemoue Bakayoko and teen sen­sa­tion Kylian Mbappe dropped to the bench.

Valere Ger­main came in and he lat­ter cre­ated the third-minute opener, his cross from wide on the right tak­ing a de­flec­tion off To­bias Badila that caught out goal­keeper Guy Roland Ndy Assembe at his near post.

Silva dou­bled their lead five min­utes from half-time, head­ing in a Thomas Le­mar cross at the end of a break­away.

Mbappe came on as a late sub­sti­tute and set up Le­mar to make it 3-0 with four min­utes re­main­ing, as Monaco made it nine straight league wins.
