AS Monaco hosted Girondins de Bordeaux at Stade Louis II on Sunday, October 3, and put on a show for home supporters as they claimed their third consecutive win in Ligue 1.
In a first half that was largely dominated by the hosts, the scoring was opened by Aurélian Tchouameni, who claimed Monaco a relatively early lead at the 34th minute.
The Monegasques kept up the pressure going into the second half, and were rewarded with an Aleksandr Golovin goal just three minutes in, extending Monaco’s lead to 2-0 at the 48th minute.
Having already contributed to his team’s success up until that point, Golovin was substituted off for Sofiane Diop, who drew a penalty at the 63rd minute.
Naturally, it would be team captain Wissam Ben Yedder who stepped up to the mark, and converted the penalty with ease, bringing the scoreline up to 3-0 and bagging his fifth goal this season.
It would be light work for Monaco to see the match off thereafter, as a determined Principality side held on to their considerable 3-0 lead for another victory on their path to comeback in Ligue 1.
This win provisionally places Monaco in sixth place on the Ligue 1 table, just a couple of points away from the podium places.
For their next fixture, Monaco will travel to Lyon on Sunday, October 16.
