The game: 0-0
Fairly expected, the clash between Monaco (4th) and Lille (5th) gave birth to a sad duel (0-0), on a terribly slow lawn. Organized in a cautious 3-4-2-1, with Jakobs and Vanderson on the sides, ASM suffered in the offensive animation. After a good first half hour, during which they created three chances by Jakobs, Minamino and Boadu, the local team showed nothing more. Nübel was called upon after the hour mark. He won a fiery duel against Weah (64th) then proved to be solid in front of Bamba (68th). He thus allowed his team to hold on against his pursuer, who remains at five lengths. ” The idea was not to lose, confessed Axel Disasi after the meeting. We wanted to keep them away. ” It succeeded.
Lille has won only one of its last 7 trips to Ligue 1 (3 draws, 3 defeats), it was in Toulouse on March 18 (2-0).
The fact: Minamino and Boadu, losing choices
Big winners of the victory in Angers, the usual substitutes Minamino and Boadu obtained the right to continue against Lille. But they did not confirm. Preferred to Diatta, the Japanese suffered in the duels and lost many balloons. He also missed the target by crossing his shot too much at the start of the match. For his part, the Dutch striker saw Chevalier make a superb parade, in the duel (31st). He suffered greatly against the Fonte-Alexsandro hinge before leaving injured, hit in the hamstrings.
The returns of Ben Yedder, Embolo, the impatience of Volland or the breadth provided by Diatta will hurt the Minamino-Boadu duo, who should only benefit from a few crumbs of playing time at the end of the season. It would therefore be very surprising to see them in the eleven during the upcoming trips against OL and Rennes.
