Monaco stay in dan­ger zone

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES SPORT -

Paris: Monaco missed the op­por­tu­nity to move clear of the French league’s rel­e­ga­tion zone af­ter con­ced­ing an in­jury-time penalty in a 2-2 draw at Mont­pel­lier on Sun­day. Striker Andy Delort’s ef­fort was poorly struck, squirm­ing un­der the goal­keeper’s body and just over the line.

Awin would have moved Monaco up to 16th place, but the draw means it is 18th and in the pro­mo­tion-rel­e­ga­tion play­off spot.

Por­tuguese for­ward Gel­son Martins scored his first goal since join­ing Monaco, slid­ing in at the back post to turn in a cross from the left af­ter 14 min­utes. Striker Gae­tan Laborde equal­ized mid­way through the sec­ond half.
