During last night’s victory against Trabzonspor, an AS Monaco striker once again distinguished himself, to the delight of Philippe Clement.
AS Monaco: A victory full of hope for ASM
The pressure was there, and the Monegasques handled it perfectly. 3rd in their group before the kick-off of the third day of the Europa League, ASM had to win on their lawn. It is now chosen done, and with style. It must be said that the Turks made their job much easier, with in particular the expulsion in the 11th minute of Maxi Gomes, guilty of a nasty gesture on Camara. In the aftermath, the inevitable Wissam Ben Yedder already author of a triple last weekend against Nantes, will open the scoring, well served by Embolo. Just before the break, he will double the penalty to save AS Monaco.
In the second period, the Lonégasques will calmly manage their advantage. Axel Disasi will come to seal the fate of the meeting by scoring the third goal for ASM. The only downside was the but conceded in the 72nd minute by Anastasios Bakasetas. Final score 3-1, which allows AS Monaco to regain second place in the group at the expense of their evening opponent.
AS Monaco: Ben Yedder congratulated by Philippe Clément
Five goals in two games, with a hat-trick and a double, in other words, Wissam Ben Yedder is walking on water at the moment. In a press conference after the meeting, his coach Philippe Clément made glowing remarks towards his striker.
“When he plays like that and he’s fresh, he starts, that’s clear. But after each match, you have to look at his physical condition, as well as all the players in general. It is important that all attackers are ready, insisted the Belgian technician to the media. He was already in the previous weeks, but he lacked success when he nevertheless made good matches. We talked a lot and my confidence in him has always been there of course.“
Proposals that should delight the French international, two days before an important meeting at La Mosson against Montpellier HSC. With the World Cup in sight, it is very likely that Wissam Ben Yedder will face many teams badly until the break, to increase his chances of leaving for Qatar.
