AS Monaco fought until the final whistle to scrape back a draw against Nantes, away in the third game of the season on Friday, August 25.
The Monégasques conceded only five minutes into the match as a result of a successfully converted Mostafa Mohamed penalty, and fell further behind by 2-0 at the 15th minute thanks to a Jean-Charles Castelletto goal.
Thankfully Takumi Minamino was on hand to score at the 27th minute to make it 2-1, carrying on in his newfound form.
Mohamed did not hesitate to make the Principality side’s trip up north any easier by scoring his second goal shortly after halftime, extending the hosts’ lead to 3-1 at the 48th minute.
However, Monaco Captain Wissam Ben Yedder was on hand to score his fourth goal to bring the visitors back into the game at the 58th minute, scoring in the third consecutive match this season.
It was looking like a loss, but Monaco’s own Myron Boadu found the back of the net at the 85th minute to salvage a draw in the dying moments.
The match concluded with a 3-3 scoreline, leaving Monaco with one point from the encounter. The next opportunity to get ahead will be on Saturday, September 2, with a visit to the Principality from serious Ligue 1 rivals Lens.
