Monaco making comeback in the match against Lyon

In
the central match of the 24
th
round of the championship of France Lyon
played against Monaco. Together with Marseille these teams are
fighting for the second place which gives the direct berth into the
group stage of the Champions League therefore additional motivation
for football players wasn’t necessary. It was the third head-to-head
between Lyon
and Monaco this season. In the first round of the championship and
Cup Les
tisseurs
won with the similar score 3:2 so Monegasques had to think of a
revenge.

On
the 12th minute Lyon
had
managed to take the lead. Mariano Díaz unexpectedly decided on from
thirty meters at the left – the ball has touched the full back and
on a curve which was so artful for the goalkeeper, flew under the
left post! Danijel
Subašić
in a jump has tried to save the team but was traumatized. Leonardo
Jardim had to substitute his main goalkeeper and to field of Seydou
Sy. Bruno Genezio’s team continued to look more interestingly and
shortly strengthened its advantage. Ferland Mendy from the left wing
had brought the ball into goal area where Bertránd Traoré took the
lead sent a ball into the gates!

Already
in the waning half an hour of the playing time Monaco reduced the
goal difference. Keita Balde with a head-start had rushed on a right
wing of the penalty area– the ball flew into the gates. And then
the referee awarded a penalty to Lyon,
having observed Ferland Mendy in the penalty area took Kamil Glik
during the set piece. Anthony Lopes struck aside Radamel Falcao’s
blow from a penalty line, however the Colombian successfully played
on follow-up. That is how quickly Monegasques won back two goals.

Tempers
flared and the referee started to give the cards right and left. At
the end of the first half Monegasques were playing in minority after
Keita Balde received another warning for a rough game. It is
interesting that the football player received the first card for an
unsporting behavior, namely a kick after a whistle. Before the break
Lyon
could take the lead but Andrea Raggi rushed under the dangerous kick
of Kenny Tete. The first half ended with the score 2:2. By the way,
on the way to a dressing room football players managed to quarrel in
the subtribune room.

After
a break Lyon
tried to set in motion numerical superiority and Monaco started to
defend the gates. Nevertheless, on the 55th minute Radamel Falcao had
a goal chance but he missed a little. In this episode the Colombian
goal-scorer received injury. He wasn’t able to continue the game
and Stevan
Jovetić
substituted him.

In
twenty minutes till the end of the meeting the football players of
Leonardo Jardim organized good counterattack. It ended with excellent
kick of Lopes in the upper left corner but Anthony Lopes in a
beautiful jump had made a save. Soon after Youri Tielemans from
behind the borders of the penalty area got under the crossbeam,
however in this episode the goal scorer of Lyon
saved the team. At the end Monaco in minority was able to score.
Stevan
Jovetić
gave the ball to Lopes and he had scored!!

Final
outcome is 3:2. Sending-offs and injuries of two leaders didn’t break
Monaco. The team to Leonardo Jardim in minority gained the comeback
victory over Lyon
and took the third place.
