Monaco managed to take home three points despite suffering not a little. Clement’s men imposed themselves with the minimum difference but, to be honest, they never found themselves below in the score. After 46 minutes of play comes the first Ben Yedder ring. The Metz, with a tactical disposition aimed at obtaining the right mix between the offensive phase and the containment phase, is already with its back to the wall and a prompt reaction is required, but being careful not to concede a double that would make any recovery really complicated. The draw becomes reality in the 62nd minute. Both teams, however, want to make a full loot and are not satisfied with a point each. The seal on Monaco’s victory is set by Boadu who gives his team the final 2-1 success.
After the 0-0 in the first half, the second half was daring. Wissam Ben Yedder’s initial goal in the 46th, Ibrahim Amadou responded in the 62nd for Metz, equalizing the match and bringing the result to 1-1. Boadu’s final goal in the 72nd minute closed the scores and brought the three points to his team.
Confirming the final result, Monaco were in control of the match: they had more ball possession (57%), made more shots (14-17), and hit more corners (6-3).
The guests successfully completed more passes than the opponent (493-352): Ruben Aguilar (79), Benoît Badiashile (64) and Aurélien Tchouaméni (59) stood out. For the hosts, Amadou was the most accurate player with 46 successful passes.
Ruben Aguilar despite not scoring was the player who tried hardest for Monaco with 3 shots towards goal. For Metz it was Nicolas de Préville who attempted to resolve the offensive actions personally and tried the conclusion 6 times.
In Monaco, defender Axel Disasi was the best of his opponents in tackles won (8 out of 11 total) and contributed to the dominance of his team in the overall figure (100%). Defender Jemerson was the most effective in the ranks of Metz with 12 tackles won (15 played in total).
The victory of Monaco has the obvious consequence of putting three points in the farmhouse, raising Clement’s team to 47 points in the standings. The setback of Metz instead leaves D. Bronn and his teammates at 23 points
