Thanks in particular to a goal from Diop in the last minutes, Monaco won on the lawn of PSV Eindhoven (1-2), during the 3rd day of the Europa League. In the standings, the Kovac players are therefore at the top of group B.
Monaco, PSV Eindhoven and Real Sociedad must play a three-way game in this group stage of the Europa League. Traveling to the Netherlands this Thursday evening, the Principality’s club signed an important victory (1-2). A capital success when it comes to doing the accounts, and just as rewarding for its script. Because it was Niko Kovac’s men who took the lead in this match.
Monaco managed its highlights well
Well in their crampons, with an efficient defensive organization and a sovereign midfielder, the Monegasques had a good first period. There was real logic in the ASM unblocking the situation by Myron Boadu, well served by Caio Henrique after the quarter of an hour of play (0-1, 20th). Especially since the same Boadu, very restless, sent other shivers through the Batavian defense (8th, 40th). In short, Monaco imposes its law without anyone finding anything to complain about.
It was when we got back from the locker room that things got worse. PSV Eindhoven spent the second to offer a real highlight. After several hot situations, the premises resurfaced by Cody Gakpo shortly before the hour mark, author of a well-adjusted recovery of the right (1-1, 59th). The lines have stretched in the last quarter of an hour, and the ASM has finally found the resources to get back to the front on the wire. After a huge opportunity from the incoming Wissam Ben Yedder (82nd), Sofiane Diop took on the savior costume by exploiting a second caviar from Caio Henrique (1-2, 89th). An advantage that Monaco retained until the final whistle. The Principality’s club therefore takes control of this group B, ahead of Real Sociedad.
