Monaco wins 1-2 in Lille!
The Principality club can say a big thank you to Tchouameni, author of a fantastic double. Monaco has an 8th success in a row in Ligue 1 and is provisionally runner-up to PSG. The pressure is on OM, who go to Lorient on Sunday, and Rennes, who will travel to Nantes on Wednesday.

Lihadji makes one of his rare appearances
He replaces Bamba for the remaining minute.
3 minutes of additional time
Lille have lowered their tone.
Djalo leaves apologizing with his hand
He was originally guilty of the first Monegasque goal. He is replaced by Bradaric.
Andre is warned for protests
We thought for a second that it was for Fonte, already warned.
Lille does not abdicate
The Mastiffs fell on a too strong Tchouameni, but have the merit of continuing to try to push.
Volland is replaced
Jean Lucas, who has been playing less lately, makes his entrance.
Weah knock above
He was at a tight angle and tries the potato with his left foot, without finding the frame.

TCHOUAMENI TURNS THE MATCH AGAIN!
He does everything, all by himself! The Monegasque midfielder again takes responsibility for taking a very long shot, and sends a heavy post. 1-2!
The people of Lille are reconciled (a little) with their public
The Mastiffs have attempted a few long shots since the equalizer. It’s not the most thrilling match of the season, but the public is pushing now. It’s already that.
WHAT AN EQUALIZATION FROM ANGEL GOMES!
It is his first goal in Ligue 1, but he will remember it. The Englishman hooks Maripan in the area and continues with a curling right shot that leaves Nübel on the spot. 1-1!
Ben Yedder is replaced
He gives way to Boadu just after taking a delayed yellow card.
Gomes smashes his shot too much from afar
He could probably have shifted his teammate who was coming on the right.
The VAR has been put to use
The ball had hit a Lille hand in the box. Not voluntary enough for it to be a penalty.
It’s the caterpillar in the gallery of the ultras
Lille fans continue their actions on the theme “You are on vacation, we are too”.
First game changes
Golovin is replaced by Jakobs on the Monaco side. The Russian hasn’t been very prominent so far.
In Lille, Angel Gomes and Zhegrova replace David and Gudmundsson.
Fonte is warned
The Lille defender claimed a penalty on the previous action, where Onana had finished his race by being hit by a defender.
Small lack of accuracy of Lille in the opposing area
Onana hits and serves David, whose pass is a bit too long. Weah can’t shoot optimally and his strike is blocked.
Jardim releases with both fists
However, the Monegasque’s header did not seem very powerful. This strange choice will have at least made it possible to see a nice shot from Tchouameni’s scarf to cross in stride (this time, the Lille goalkeeper captures the ball).
Here we go again !
No changes at the break.
0-1 in favor of Monaco at the break!
LOSC came out under the whistles of its public. Tchouameni created a goal in a first period without very dangerous actions. The ASM is satisfied with it for the moment.
TCHOUAMENI OPENS THE SCORE!
It only took one opportunity for the Monegasques to strike. Vanderson steals the ball from Djalo, Ben Yedder transmits to Tchouameni at the entrance to the area, small feint to open the angle from the left, strike well slammed. 0-1!
Caio Henrique complains that he has no solutions
The lack of movement is indeed one of the great themes of this first period.
Celik is the first warned player
We felt that a yellow card was going to come out at one point or another.
It’s a little more intense
And besides, we see more faults and tension on the pitch. We would like that to materialize in terms of a show now.
Bamba tries his luck from afar
It is well above, but it confirms the good start to the Lille match.
Tchouameni slams the ball from a corner
It’s not on target, but Volland is very close to emerging at the far post. The German is finally a little short, or surprised by the rebound.
Unexpected action by LOSC
André crosses, Gudmundsson heads. The first succeeds very well in what he has to do, the second does not manage to fit while moving back.
First quarter of an hour not very thrilling
The LOSC holds the Monegasque attack rather well, and has even allowed itself a few situations of lag in front. But overall, it lacks opportunities and intensity… and atmosphere.
Weah still does not open his goal counter
The American international had however well controlled a ball which had returned to him in the surface. Almost too well: he struggles to follow up a shot because the ball is too close to his foot, and his shot ends up in Nübel’s arms.
ASM in great shape outside
Monaco have won 4 of their last 5 trips to Ligue 1 (1 loss), one more than in the first 12 this season (4 draws, 5 losses).
David is thrown deep
From a tight angle, the Canadian tries his luck with his left foot. Nübel is not even afraid, it is largely next to it.
The LOSC is chambered by its public
“Olé! Olé!” ring out as Monaco spin the ball around.
The first overflow is from Volland
The German adjusts his center stung at the far post for Vanderson, but the Lille defense is attentive.
Let’s go !
Kick off given by Lille, in an icy atmosphere.
The players enter the lawn under a few whistles
Strange atmosphere in Lille. The Monegasque parking lot is however well filled.
“You are on vacation, so are we!”
This is the banner of Lille’s ultras, who are in summer dress in their stands. So we should have a strange atmosphere tonight.
