Falcao helps Monaco thrash Dijon
Kylian Mbappe watched on from the bench as Radamel Falcao struck a hat-trick in champions Monaco’s 4-1 victory away to Dijon in Ligue 1 on Sunday.
Jemerson also scored in a comprehensive victory for the principality side that made it two wins from two after they started the campaign by beating Toulouse 3-2 last weekend.
It was also their 14th consecutive league win, equalling the record set by Bordeaux in 2009.
They join Lyon, Marseille and SaintEtienne on maximum points before Paris Saint-Germain - with Neymar poised to make his debut - visit Guingamp later (1900 GMT).
But it was the absence of Mbappe that will likely prove the biggest talking point of Monaco’s trip to Burgundy.
The 18-year-old France forward was one of the stars of Monaco’s title triumph and run to the Champions League semifinals last season.
However, he is said to be determined to leave the principality before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month, with Real Madrid keen but PSG his preferred destination. His club want 180 million euros ($213 million, £164 million) if they are to sell.
