Embolo offers the derby of the Côte d’Azur to Monaco, which sinks Nice

Thus, the first Cote d’Azur derby in the 2022-2023 season will be in favor of ASM. A few days before the start of their European campaigns, Monaco won a short header in Nice (1-0) this Sunday, at the end of the sixth day of the French League. For this southern shock, Lucien Favre decided to trust Laborde-Delort-Pépé trio at the 3-4-3 lead, when Philippe Clement preferred to line up Embolo rather than Ben Yedder at the front. Perhaps the first period was in favor of the Aiglons, who failed to make a difference. It must be said that Nübel, the janitor of the ASM, was impeccable in front of Atal (12), then Pépé (29) and Dante (45). Note that the Algerian side was also forced to give way to Lutumba shortly after the hour mark due to a spur in the left thigh.

The Monegasques had a little more trouble being dangerous, except for this blow from Golovin who escaped from Schmeichel’s frame (42). Upon returning from the locker room, it was clear that Niçois was determined to take the lead in this clash. Their debut hinted at some interesting things after a disappointing first half. It didn’t last long, and rockers were the most dangerous. Golovin found the post before sneaking off (52′), while Embolo missed the target (57′). Before setting the spectator with his head, on the middle fallout from Henrique, to open the scoring (0-1, 69). It is enough to stop the series of 4 matches without a win for Monaco, who are back in tenth place in the standings. Good news before moving to Belgrade to challenge Red Star on Thursday in the Europa League. Le Gym, now 16th and unbeaten in Monaco for more than two years, confirms its delicate start to the season. Receiving a cologne, at a regular conference, can be a breath of fresh air, or drive the point home.
