Author of a double, Tchouamni offered the victory Monaco on the lawn of Lille (2-1), this Friday, at the start of the 36th day of Ligue 1. The club of the Principality double Rennes and Marseille to temporarily climb the 2nd position in the ranking.
Tchouamni scored a double Lille
Fourth at kick-off, Monaco had to take advantage of this trip to the lawn of a Lille team, which had nothing left to play, to put pressure on Marseille and Rennes. It’s done, since ASM won 2-1 this Friday, at the start of the 36th day of Ligue 1, and temporarily occupies 2nd place in the standings (thanks to a better goal difference than OM) before the matches of its competitors.
Chambered by their supporters, who threw ol on each opposing pass during the first minutes, the Lille nevertheless made an interesting start to the match. But the Mastiffs did not materialize their good first twenty minutes, the attempts of David (7th), Gudmundsson (9th, 19th) and Weah (12th) not really worrying Nbel in his cage.
Chuamni, Act I
Opposite, Philippe Clement’s men did not show much on the lawn of the Pierre-Mauroy stadium. The fault is a lack of rhythm in the game and of inspiration when approaching the opposing surface. But the light came from Tchouamni. Author of ASM’s only two dangerous chances before his goal, the midfielder gave his team the advantage with a shot from the left between the surface (0-1, 42nd).
Upon returning from the locker room, the match fell into a false rhythm. There was not much to eat and it was not until the 69th minute that the game was awakened by the equalization of Gomes, who eliminated Maripan before beating Nbel with a roll from the right (1- 1, 69e). This goal gave a little voice to the Lille public who watched in the crowd Zhegrova’s strike stopped by Nbel (71st) then that of Celik who passed near the post (72nd).
Chuamni, Act II
This equalization could have made Monaco gamble, but Tchouamni, again, gave his side the advantage with a terrible strike from the right from 30 meters (1-2, 75th). What a cannonball! Behind, LOSC tried to react at the end of the match but Nbel was still vigilant in front of Zhegrova (85th) in order to preserve three very precious points for Monaco. Without shining in the game, the Mongasques did the job. For LOSC, this end of the season promises to be really painful…
Match score: 5/10
In a sulky Pierre-Mauroy stadium, the match struggled to get off the ground. The first period was very quiet until the goal of Tchouamni. The second act was disappointing for a long time, but Gomes’ equalizer and Tchouamni’s terrible strike woke up the Lille public a little. In short, the three goals come to save a very average match.
The goals :
– Vanderson fights on the right side to recover the ball at Djalo’s feet and gives Ben Yedder. The Mongasque striker comes to fix the Lille defense at the right corner of the surface and shifts in the axis towards Tchouamni, who fixes André and scores with a shot from the left low to the ground (0-1, 42nd).
– On a long ball from Botman, Bamba shifts to the left side before returning to Gomes. The Lille striker infiltrates the area, eliminates Maripan and scores with a coiled shot from the right (1-1, 69th).
– Served from almost 30 meters, slightly off-centre on the left, Tchouamni fired a powerful shot from the right which lodged between Jardim and his right post (1-2, 75′).

Man of the match: Aurlien Tchouamni (8.5/10)
The AS Monaco midfielder simply died on screen. Full of confidence, as proven by his cross with a scarf, the French international was decisive for ASM. After a side header from a corner (26th) then a shot over (31st), he did not miss the target to open the scoring with a shot from the left at the entrance to the surface (42nd). In the second period, he restored the advantage to his team with an overpowered strike from 30 meters (75′). Besides his double, he was precise in the game and very good defensively. A full game!
Lo Jardim (4): a frustrating match for the Lille goalkeeper. While he had no saves in the first period, the Brazilian bowed on the first strike Mongasque signed Tchouamni (42nd). In the second half, he was still pierced by the missile from the Mongasque midfield (75th).
Mehmet elik (4): the right side of LOSC had a bad evening. The Turk was in difficulty defensively and proved to be very skilful in the game since he very often lost the ball on his climbs in his lane.
Tiago Djal (3): established in the left lane, the Lille defender did not have an easy evening. Although he had started his match rather well, the Portuguese lead his team before the break with an unnecessary loss of the ball which led to the opening of the Monegasque score (42nd). Replace the 87th by Domagoj Bradaric (not not).
Jos Fonte (5): the captain was still very nervous. If he responded present in the duels, he does not really bring the serenity that his team would need behind at the moment.
Sven Botman (6): the LOSC defender was level. He was rarely put in trouble and he made several valuable interventions, including a perfect tackle on Vanderson in his box.
Gabriel Gudmundsson (4): another very average match for the Swede. Established in the position of left midfielder, he weighed very little in the debates. We will remember his too soft shot after having eliminated three players (9th) and his header which passes aside (19th). Replace the 56th by Edon Zhegrova (not not)who solicited Nbel on two strikes (71st, 85th).
Jonathan Bamba (4): the attacking midfielder showed desire, but he was not fair enough in the area of truth. Like his shot not framed (30th) then his failed control on a shift from David in the area (50th). Replace the 90th+1 by Isaac Lihadji (not not).
Benjamin André (5): as often, the Lille midfielder spared no effort in defensive work. But he did not manage to prevent Tchouamni from shooting Monaco’s first goal (42nd). In the game, he had waste in his passes.
Amadou Onana (5): the Lille midfielder was rather interesting. His desire to always play forward and break the lines through the pass is a plus for his team. However, this requires a great deal of precision, and he sometimes lacked it.
Jonathan David (3): the LOSC striker failed again. As too often in recent months, the Canadian international was very little dangerous up front. Apart from a side shot at the start of the match (7th), he did not try much. Replace the 56th by Angel Gomes (no not)who scored the 1-1 goal after a small number in the Mongasque area (69th).
Timothy Weah (5): Like his team, the American international was enterprising at the start of the game and got a good chance, but his shot lacked power to deceive Nbel (12th). He was rather hard-hitting with the ball at his feet to fix the Monegasque defenders and give interesting balls to his partners.
Alexander Nbel (5.5): the Monegasque goalkeeper made little contribution, except on a not very dangerous shot from Weah (12th) and two attempts from Zhegrova (71st, 85th). He is beaten by Gomes’ shot in his area (69th).
Ruben Aguilar (5): Monaco’s right-back was correct in this match. He did the job defensively to close his right lane, except on the Lille goal where he let Bamba go on Botman’s long opening.
Guillermo Maripn (5): the central defender was not put in difficulty very often, but he defended very badly on the goal of Gomes (69th).
Benoit Badiashile (7): the young defender of ASM makes a good copy. He was impressive in his area to repel danger several times (7 defensive aerial duels won, 2 interceptions, 4 clearances). A rock.
Caio Henrique (6): we knew the more offensive Mongasque left side. But the Brazilian defended rather well and ended the match all the same with a decisive pass on Tchouamni’s second goal.
Youssouf Fofana (5): in form in recent weeks, the Mongasque environment has marked time this evening. He had more difficulty projecting himself to recover the ball, which was his strength in recent games. Defensively, he was a little less impressive too.
Aurlien Tchouamni (8.5): read the comment above.
Vanderson (5): long discreet, the right midfielder came out of the woodwork to recover the ball at Djalo’s feet and launch Ben Yedder on the action of the first Mongasque goal (42nd). It’s about the only brilliance of his match.
Kevin Volland (5): the German striker did not spare his efforts but he did not have many opportunities to shine in front of goal during this meeting. It is too short to take a header from Tchouamni at the far post (26th). Replace the 81st by Jean Lucas (not not).
Aleksandr Golovin (6): author of a shot in the small net (46th), the Russian was not decisive but he still weighed in the game with 3 dribbles and 3 key passes. He also worked defensively (3 successful tackles). Replace the 55th by Ismail Jakobs (not).
Wissam Ben Yedder (6): the captain of ASM did not find the net to score his 22nd goal of the season in Ligue 1, but he delivers a decisive pass Tchouamni (42nd). Without being flamboyant, he remains decisive for his team. Replace the 66th by Myron Boadu (not not).
