Round of 32 of the Coupe de France
Monaco – Ajaccio: 2-1
Goals : Falcao (19th), Germain (66th) / Cavalli (65 sp)
Monaco had no room for error in his return from vacation. Opposed to AC Ajaccio in Round of 32 of the Coupe de France, ASM trembled throughout the encounter but eventually forced to go to the next round of the competition. Recognizing the importance of this meeting, Leonardo Jardim did not turn as this training and the first few minutes, Monaco has put pressure on the Corsican cage.
Three years after his serious injury sustained in January during a Cup match France against Chasselay, Falcao opened the scoring for the Monegasques on a centered Mbappe (1-0, 19th). Domineering, ASM has failed to worsen before the interval despite some dangerous situations. Opposite Ajaccio has procured a few occasions especially early in the game.
Left on the same basis as in the first half, Falcao failed to afford a double after the break. On a thumping header, the Colombian found the crossbar Mandanda (47th). The striking Mbappe found the same fate on the next action (48th). Despite its dominance, Monaco was upset by conceding a penalty for a foul on Diallo Madri. A penalty converted by Cavalli to boost Ajaccio in this encounter (1-1, 65th).
Corsican hopes did not last long since Germain restored the advantage to his few minutes later on a shot to France Moutinho (2-1, 66th). If the end game is completely packed, ASM held its result to reach the next round. Ajaccio defended well and with a little more luck could possibly take Monaco in overtime.
