Mangala collects a yellow card
On a breakthrough by Tchouaméni, Eliaquim Mangala makes a mistake and is logically warned by the referee.
Boadu hits the post
Ben Yedder’s replacement was close to scoring. The Monegasque striker touches the post after several hooks.
Adil Aouchiche returns
Pascal Dupraz makes a change when the match resumes with the entry of Adil Aouchiche in place of Maçon.
Here we go again
After long minutes of interruption, the match of the 34th day of Ligue 1 between ASSE and AS Monaco finally resumes.
The game will resume
The match will resume at 9 p.m., announces the match referee in Geoffroy Guichard’s press conference room.
The public gives voice
If the meeting has been interrupted for several minutes now, the supporters of Geoffroy-Guichard continue to sing and set the mood.
A crisis unit is convened
A crisis unit was convened after the incidents which have just taken place in the stands of Saint-Etienne to rule on the continuation of the meeting.
The game is interrupted
New fireworks are fired from the Green Angels’ Kopp. The game is interrupted.
Double change for Dupraz
Pascal Dupraz made two changes shortly after the hour mark. Kolodziejczak and Khazri gave way to Trauco and Hamouma.
Superb flight from Bernardoni
Paul Bernardoni makes a superb save following the powerful strike of Vanderson. The Stéphanois goalkeeper maintains a little suspense in this meeting.
Kolodziejczak scores an own goal
It’s a new own goal for Kolodziejczak. The Saint-Etienne defender throws himself to tackle but the ball he deflects ends up in the back of the net.
Double change for ASM
Philippe Clement makes two changes. Golovin and Ben Yedder give way to Jakobs and Boadu.
The show continues in the stands
The Green Angels continue to celebrate their 30th anniversary. The ultras from Saint-Etienne crack other smoke bombs. The Cauldron smokes up.
Bouanga remains on the ground
After a tough duel with Sidibé, Dennis Bouanga gets up with difficulty and seems to suffer from ankle pain.
The Greens have the ball
Since the return from the locker room, it is the Greens who have control of the ball even if, for the moment, it remains quite sterile.
Djibril Sidibé made his entrance
Philippe Clément made a change at halftime. Djibril Sidibé replaced Gelson Martins. Vanderson will certainly step up a notch in this second act.
Here we go again
Everything is still undecided in this meeting of the 34th day of Ligue 1. If ASM seemed to have made the difference, Wahbi Khazri’s goal just before the break completely revived this match.
End of the first period
It’s over for this first act at Geoffroy-Guichard. ASM leads two goals to one in a spirited first period on and off the pitch.
Wahbi Khazri warned
The Stéphanois striker was warned after a late intervention on Caio Henrique. Khazri will miss the game against Nice because of this warning.
Mini fireworks are fired, match stopped
The Green Angels launched mini fireworks from their Kop. The match is stopped but will resume after an announcement from the announcer.
Gabriel Silva is out
Tactical readjustment for Pascal Dupraz and Saint-Etienne. The Saint-Etienne coach brings in Arnaud Nordin in place of Gabriel Silva.
Wahbi Khazri is not mistaken in front of Nubel. The Tunisian international takes the Monegasque goalkeeper on the wrong foot and completely revives this match.
Penalty for ASSE
The referee designates the penalty spot! Aurélien Tchouaméni tackles in the feet of Camara who had projected himself into the penalty area. The opportunity for the Greens to restart the match. The Monegasque midfielder receives a yellow card.
Nice defensive intervention by Mason
It took this defensive intervention from Mason to prevent the Monegasques from still being threatening on Bernardoni’s cages. The Stéphanois side cuts a nice pass from Fofana behind the defense.
The Greens lack accuracy
It has been a leitmotif since the start of the match. The Greens manage to approach the Monegasque surface but lack, for the moment, the technical accuracy to be dangerous.
Another opportunity for ASM
The disagreement between Ben Yedder and Volland. On a ladle from Henrique in depth, the two ASM attackers procrastinate and let Bernardoni intervene.
Mason’s shooting center worries Nubel
Voluntary or not, Yvan Maçon’s attempt almost deceived Alexander Nubel, who covered his first post well to prevent the center shot from the Saint-Etienne side from finishing in the back.
Volland scores Monaco’s second goal
Incredible! ASM scores a second goal in stride on an almost similar goal. Fofana launches Martins who crosses towards Kevin Volland. The German finishes with a flat foot and deceives Bernardoni.
Ben Yedder strikes again!
On a school action, Wissam Ben Yedder concludes in the penalty area. Previously, Aurélien Tchouaméni sends an excellent ball to Henrique who crosses towards the French international who scores his 20th goal of the season.
First yellow card of the game
After a loss of ball from Gelson Martins, the Portuguese tries to catch up but commits a foul on Khazri. The referee gives him the first yellow card of the match.
Nubel’s new stop
Again Bouanga and again Nubel. The two men are still in action following the strike from the Gabonese. Alexander Nubel wins, once again, in two stages while Wahbi Khazri was lapping.
Good intervention from Nubel
The Monegasque goalkeeper is involved for the first time in the meeting. Bouanga is launched in depth by Nadé. The Gabonese crosses but Nubel wins in his area in two stages.
What Nubel Relaunch Error
On a harmless free kick recovery for ASM, Nubel is totally torn. His raise landed at the feet of Boudebouz who could not follow up.
The defense of AS Monaco too quiet
Vanderson loses a ball in front of Boudebouz. This is not the first time that one of the Monegasque defenders has struggled to raise. For the moment, the Stéphanois do not benefit from it.
Already several mistakes
This start to the match is bumpy. There are a lot of fouls and the intensity is tough. The referee has already intervened several times to calm the 22 players.
Many smoke bombs are lit
Already a first animation in the Kop of the Green Angels who celebrate their thirty years. The ultras from Saint-Etienne crack many smoke bombs to accompany their songs.
First big chance for ASM
Paul Bernardoni makes a nice save following Volland’s strike. The ball returns in the axis towards Gelson Martins who takes over in the first intervention but his shot goes over the Saint-Etienne cages.
Big intervention by Nadé on Volland
The tone is set in this meeting. Nadé intervenes with a lot of desire behind Volland’s back. The referee signals a foul.
Volland’s first strike
On a long bell-shaped ball from Vanderson behind the Saint-Etienne defense, Kevin Volland took his chance but his recovery largely missed Bernardoni’s cages.
Let’s go to Geoffroy-Guichard
