Author of a big performance in the Monegasque goals despite the defeat at Groupama Stadium, the German goalkeeper was elected man of the match against OL by the Rouge et Blanc fans on the AS Monaco App.
He was huge in front of his line against Lyon. Unfortunately, the result of the meeting, with this defeat against OL (2-0), was not rewarded with a high-level performance. Alexander Nübel was elected Monegasque MVP for the shock of the 10th day of Ligue 1 at Groupama Stadium. Frustrating therefore, for the German goalkeeper on loan from Bayern Munich, who made 6 decisive saves during the match, before giving in in the last quarter of an hour.
Six very important stops
The Lyon assaults were already early. To pay his 10th appearance in the top flight with AS Monaco, the last bulwark of the Red and White was first easily imposed on a strike from Xherdan Shaqiri (6th). But from the 22nd minute, he was forced to pull out all the stops on this strike from the left, after a good sequence from Karl Toko Ekambi. And it is again on a head of the Olympic striker, that he interposes perfectly, achieving in passing a beautiful horizontal (25th).
OH NUBEL! ??
He disgusts the opposing attacker and manifests himself perfectly to ward off danger.

Decisive, it is again on an attempt by Rayan Cherki (34th), and ahead of Tino Kadewere, who entered during the game (69th). But it is especially on this authoritarian exit in front of the Zimbabwean striker, that he impresses with his composure (70th). His intervention like a handball goalkeeper, without trembling, is remarkable. Unfortunately, he will be forced to give up a few minutes later on a penalty kick from Karl Toko Ekambi (1-0, 75th), which he had disgusted until then.
Six stops therefore, an address found with the ball at the foot, and a certain assurance in the aerial exits, which logically made him the favorite of the votes for the title of Monegasque MVP of the meeting. Moreover, Cesc Fàbregas was not mistaken, by selling the performance of his teammate on Twitter. In the end, Alexander Nübel totals 59% of the votes of the red and white fans on the AS Monaco App, and confirms his good form after two very successful outings against Real Sociedad and Bordeaux. Well done to him!
Thanks Alex !! #Daghe
