Badiashile gives Monaco victory against Metz

The young defender of the Monegasques scored a beautiful goal that allowed the Kovac team to achieve their first victory of the season in Ligue 1.


A fantastic volley by Badiashile, also from set pieces, like last week against Stade Reims, allowed Monaco to take the 3 points of the always difficult Metz field and thus certify the first victory of the season in Ligue 1.

The Monegasque team traveled to the Moselle with the obligation to win, even more so after last week's draw against Stade Reims. Niko Kovac repeated the same system of the first day with the main novelty of Sidibé, who occupied the left lane, at the expense of the debut of Caio Henrique, recently signed from Atlético de Madrid.

The first setback for Monaco came in the 13th minute. After an encouraging start, in which they had several arrivals on the wing, Golovin, their best player along with Ben Yedder, requested the change due to muscular problems. The Russian international has not yet been able to settle in Ligue 1 due to injuries and this season it took him only two days to get injured.

Despite the misfortune with Golovin, Monaco took the lead on the scoreboard in the strong point of Kovac's team in the two rounds we have played: the set piece. Badiashile, recently wanted by Real Madrid, took advantage of an indecision from the Metz defense to quickly hit a big shot that ended up in the squad of the goal defended by Alexandre Oukidja. Last week, both goals for Monaco came from set pieces and the work of their two centrals, just like today against Metz.

Monaco was hit hard again early in the second half. Youssouf Fofana was reckless about Angban, arriving too late for a split ball and seeing the red card. It is the 11th expulsion that the Monegasque team has seen since last season, being the one with the most difference in all of Ligue 1. From then on, the occasions followed one another on the local side, the clearest being a shot in the front of Centonze with his left leg he crashed into the post. Despite the final suffering, Monaco was a solid and compact team with 10 and ended up certifying the first victory of the season.

Bordeaux and Saint-Étienne debut in Ligue 1

Of the bulk of the day played at 3:00 p.m., it is worth highlighting Saint-Étienne's first victory in Ligue 1. The Rhône team could not play the first day due to the increase in cases of coronavirus in the squad and today they won with sufficiency 2-0 to Lorient. Hamouma put the locals ahead with a beautifully crafted goal with his left leg and the Saint-Étienne winger took advantage of a great move by Nordin in the second half to sign a double that practically sentenced the game.

Despite having lost their coach a week before the start of Ligue 1 and having been unable to sign in the market, Girondins de Bordeaux surprised and beat Angers 0-2. The team coached by Jean-Louis Gasset made an impeccable first half and managed to get ahead from set pieces through Maja. A minute later, “Les Bordelais” increased their lead, in a great counterattack that Basic ended after dodging the two rival centrals with great oriented control. A victory in a very complicated field that places Gasset's team with 4 points out of 6 in the upper zone of the classification.

For their part, Nantes had to suffer until the last minute to certify their victory against Nîmes (2-1). Les Canaris went on to win 2-0 on the scoreboard thanks to goals from Girotto and Louza from penalties, but the latter expelled himself as soon as the second half began and Nîmes cut back thanks to a great goal from Fehret. The local team finished with 9, as Fabio also saw the red card after a tough tackle on Ripart, although the three points remained in La Beaujouire.
