0-0. Here is the score of the last clash between AS Monaco and SC Toulon. It was August 1, a little over a month ago, during the Red and White’s last preparation game. But for Stéphane Nado, coach of the N2, this match is now a thing of the past. ” There is a big difference between preparation and official matches. We cannot draw a parallel between these two meetings. But we know what to expect. Toulon is an experienced team with a lot of ambition which aims for the top of the ranking. “Stuck in 13th place in Group D, Sporting struggled to take off at the start of the year. With four draws and one defeat, the Var club is looking for its first success in the league. And if AS Monaco has just won its first match in Lyon, there is no question of getting carried away. ” For the boys it will be a training match, as we are used to in this very tough Group D. We will support each other on our qualities, but we expect strong opposition“, Explains the Monegasque technician.

The will to progress, to put quality in the sessions must be used to improve individually but also collectively. ” Attitudes that the coach of the N2 would like to see more on a daily basis.
