On Sunday, AS Mónaco suffered an away defeat to Lille at the Stade Pierre Mauroy. Lille were looking to pick up points after winning their previous two games against RC Strasburg away and RC Lens at home, by 3-0 and 1-0 respectively. Monaco had secured a point against Clermont Foot in their previous match. Lille are now in 6th place on the table and have 22 points while Monaco sit in 7th with 21 points after 12 matches.

Les Dogues started the first half well, when Alexsandro Ribeiro found the net, 22 minutes in. However, their lead didn’t last for long, Caio Henrique producing an equaliser on the 34 minute mark, bringing The Monégasques level. However, each side looked hungry to win and Lille then found the back of the net, 39 minutes in thanks to Remy Cabella, taking the score to 2-1. However, their lead was short-lived, as Axel Disasi equalised for Monaco just before half-time, to take a 2-2 lead into half time.

Monaco started strong in the second half and were able to dominate, when Wissam Ben Yedder found the net on the 53 minute mark. However, their lead was short-lived, as an equalizer from Remy Cabella, at 62 minutes, brought Lille level. Lille then scored again and found the back of the net thanks to a goal from Jonathan Bamba on the 71 minute mark to give a final score of 4-3.
