Less radiant than usual in the game, the brilliant Russian once again led his team to victory, as against Metz (2-0) a fortnight ago. Decisive passer, from a corner, for Zakaria's header (16th), the Monegasque number 17 doubled the lead in the second half with a beautiful shot curled into the top corner (69th). With 5 goals and 2 assists in 10 days of Ligue 1, Golovin shines individually and allows his partners to shine. His technical quality is a luxury for Monaco, who hope that physical problems will leave him alone all season.
Arriving this summer from Torino, the Ivorian defender impresses with his physical power and his sense of positioning. Alongside Guillermo Maripan, he left nothing to pass, illustrating himself with unfailing solidity against Le Douaron then Camblan. Now installed in the three-man defense of ASM, he demonstrates his high potential week after week. Also dominant in the aerial game, Singo does not have many faults and the Rocher club benefits from this.
The Brest midfielder was at the origin of numerous actions even if his foul on Folarin Balogun prevented Le Douaron from opening the scoring at the start of the game (11th). With a large volume of play, the former Nice player demonstrated all his technical quality, both in the short game and in the crossbars opposite Romain Del Castillo. However, like his team, nothing smiled on him, his beautiful left shot hitting the crossbar in particular (77th). The Brestois tried a lot, never gave up but leaves the Principality frustrated.
Very promising, the French international hopeful had the opportunity to shine by starting the match, to the detriment of Takumi Minamino. But the Brest opposition in the midfield made life difficult for him despite his good intentions. The 21-year-old left-hander was very discreet until his exit in the 65th minute, replaced by Wissam Ben Yedder. Very good against Marseille then interesting against Metz, Akliouche struggled this evening. His high-level learning continues.
Two goals disallowed for a disputed foul and a millimeter offside, a crossbar, an outgoing post and 15 unconverted shots. Pleasant in the game, Stade Brestois leaves the Rock with enormous frustration. For 90 minutes, everything went in the wrong direction for Eric Roy's team, even reduced to ten at the end of the match following the expulsion of Lillian Brassier. Still 6th in Ligue 1, Brest suffered its third defeat in the league, after Lille (0-1) then PSG (2-3), but can capitalize on encouraging performances. And success risks turning in his favor over the coming weekends, as the football gods have turned their backs on him this Sunday.
