Monaco dominated but failed to score against Bordeaux

Monaco remains 5th on League 1 ladder

Honoring the Paris victims at Stade Louis II @CelinaLafuenteDeLavothaThis past Sunday everybody at Stade Louis II stood up before the match Monaco-Bordeaux, but instead of observing a minute of silence to pay respect to the victims of the recent Paris terrorist attack, they were honored with a heartwarming minute’s applause from the fans, including Prince Albert who was in the Royal box. The players from both teams were wearing black armbands as a tribute.

The match started with a fast pace and Toure from Bordeaux had a clear shot on goal that Danjiel Subasic stopped in its tracks. The first half was somewhat entertaining and the fans on both sides remained hopeful. We could describe the second period as rather lackluster, and in spite of Monaco dominating ball possession and having a few shots on goal, they failed to convert and finished in a tie, taking only 1 point to remain 5th in the ladder ahead of Bordeaux. Willy Sagnol’s team was not at its best so the Monegasques missed a great chance to extend their winning streak and accumulate some points to solidify their position on the top of the table. The truth is they have not lost for 7 matches in a row all competitions concerned, so we have to recognized that Jardim’s men are having a good run.

Let’s hope the Monegasque players still have a lot of energy in store to keep them going for the rest of January as they have 6 matches to contest.
