Montpellier 3-2 Monaco
Buts: Wahi (13e) and Mavididi (32e, 90e++1) for the MHSC // Ben Yedder (34e) and Vanderson (81e) for ASM.
First bowl for Clement.
Led 2-0 at the half-hour mark on Sunday at La Mosson, AS Monaco thought they had managed to save the day thanks to Wissam Ben Yedder’s thirteenth goal of the season and a delicious recovery from Vanderson slammed at the end of the match. Lost: on the gong, Olivier Dall’Oglio finally saw his band win three precious points (3-2).
When it was time to toast with the Monegasques, Montpellier had a dream: to finally afford a benchmark match against a top 5 club. the game was on fire and Elye Wahi first took advantage of a blocked shot from Stephy Mavididi to beat Nübel (1-0, 13e). The Héraultais then continued to press on the defensive largesse of Philippe Clement’s men and, in the wake of an attempt by Ben Yedder (28e), Mavididi found the small net for ASM (2-0, 32e).
Folded match? That’s what we thought for a while, but Monaco, held by a Tchouameni still in the oven and in the mill, reduced the score via a header from Ben Yedder before the break (2-1, 34e), then Vanderson equalized ten minutes from the end of a stifling match (2-2, 81e). Montpellier kept trying, Gioacchini chewed, Nübel resisted, but in stoppage time, after a Cozza rush, Mavididi blew the Mosson (3-2, 90e) and thus spun a prestigious success at the MHSC, which sticks Monaco in its retro.
