Monaco hold Marseille in 2-1 home victory in League Cup
Monaco are through to the final 16 in the League Cup after winning 2-1 at home to the formidable Olympique Marseille.
Jardim’s men were ahead 2-0 at half time, thanks to goals from Augustin in the 25th minute and Aguilar in the 40th. Monaco’s star goal scorer Ben Yedder was on the benches for the game, due to injury. Monaco also lost the services of Fabregas in the 14th minute, due to a thigh injury.
In the second half the visitors applied pressure, but it wasn’t until the 78th minute that Lecomte found the back of the Monaco net. Monaco held on and assured their place in the final 16. AS Monaco’s next game is on Sunday, November 3, away to Saint Etienne.
