Obviously disappointed with the result of the match against Strasbourg (1-1), the Monegasque central defender wanted to retain the positive of this fight, three days away from Angers.
Recover and repair. Despite a bitter fight against Strasbourg, the Red and White had to be satisfied with a 1-1 draw at the Stade Louis-II. A frustrating result in view of the face of the meeting, even if AS Monaco remains on the lookout for the top 5 in the Ligue 1 standings. Retain the positive, here is what Axel Disasi wished to underline at the end of a week marked by the qualification for the round of 16 of the Europa League. Extracts.
Good evening Axel. Comment do you analyze this draw with hindsight?
It was a big fight today. We knew it was going to be difficult against a Strasbourg team that never gives up. We know them, in front of them it’s always big battles. It’s a formation that is very difficult to maneuver, even if we have done good things. Unfortunately we did not know how to put this second but which could have allowed us to pocket the three points.
Once they equalized, the Strasbourg people are no longer too out of their part of the field, especially since they were evolving with this defense to five. We were prepared to respond to that, but it’s up to us to find the right sequences, the right automatisms to counter these regrouped teams.

What did he miss to be able to win?
We were not successful, because if the ball enters Wissam’s dive from the second minute of play, it is not the same match, the same physiognomy. Behind he does the job by scoring this penalty which does us good just before half-time. I would say that we lack a little luck, success in front of goal, to be able to ensure our end of the matches.
“BUT YES MY WISSAM!” ??
There is joy on Stad’Inside ✌️

It is never easy to evolve in the face of low blocks …
It’s true. Once they equalized, the Strasbourg people are no longer too out of their part of the field, especially since they were evolving with this defense to five. We were prepared to answer that, but it’s up to us to find the right sequences, the right automatisms to counter these regrouped teams, and to put the second or the third goal, to take the three points. We need to move up the standings.
Despite everything, the defense was not very concerned today. There is something positive to remember.
We have been strong. Apart from the penalty, they didn’t have a lot of opportunities to put us in danger in front, so it’s a choice that must be remembered and kept for the future. We must build on this solidity and keep it over the long term, to seek positive results and move up the rankings.
On a dispute a big match of the European Cup Thursday. Today we play again and Tuesday we go to Angers. So the watchword is really recovery, clearing your head, and seeing what we can do best for the next match.

Wasn’t there a little fatigue also with the sequence?
We will have to recover well before this Angers match, which arrives on Wednesday. It is true that this year we play every three days. On a dispute a big match of the European Cup Thursday. Today we play again and Tuesday we go to Angers. So the watchword is really recovery, clearing your head, and seeing what we can do best for the next match.
You mentioned the Real Sociedad game, it’s still a good week at the finish …
It is true that we must not forget this qualification in the Europa League with this first place assured in the group. Today everything is not to be thrown away, far from it, even if this is not the result we hoped for. There is always something positive to take from our games. It is now up to us to identify once again what we can improve in order to be able to move forward and change the situation in the next match.
