Monaco makes it harder

Despite opportunities, AS Monaco lost Tuesday night at home to Shakhtar (0-1), during this first leg of the Champions League.

Success did not come. Despite a statistics sheet to their advantage, 16 shots including 6 on target, the Monegasques could not deceive the giant Trubin (1.99m) in this first leg of the Champions League played Tuesday evening at the Louis-II stadium.

The goalkeeper of Shakhtar Donetsk was certainly helped by the amount on an attempt by Boadu (82nd), but the parades in front Chouameni (44e), Golovin (48th) and Ben Yedder (57th) have demonstrated its qualities.

Those of Ukrainian players, beyond their tinted South American technique, can be summed up by realism. Pedrinho’s slalom talent, in the 19th minute, caused the defeat of ASM (0-1) before the second leg.

The new UEFA rules notably eliminated the away goal in a two-way match. Which should make the failure of Niko Kovac players less painful. It is up to them to react next Wednesday in Kharkiv to see the group stage of C1 next month.
