AS Monaco lost on the field of Lyon. For example, Philippe Clement’s team again drops points and is definitively eliminated for the Champions League.
However, the match could not have started better for Philippe Clement and Monaco. They were awarded a penalty after fouling Wissam Ben Yedder. He converted the penalty kick himself.
A few minutes before the break, Lyon restored the balance. Alexandre Lacazette scored on a pass from Bradley Barcola. 1-1 was also the halftime score.
After the break, Maxence Caqueret gave the home team the lead. He was in the right place to work the ball into the rebound into goal. Monaco pressed on, but fifteen minutes before the end, Rayan Cherki dispelled all doubts. Lyon won 3-1. Eliot Matazo played just over an hour.
Monaco lost points again. It took 4 out of 15 in the last 5 games and so it remains in 4th place in Ligue 1. With 2 games to go, it is 8 points behind Marseille, which is 3rd. Monaco is therefore eliminated from the Champions League. Only the top 3 are entitled to this. Lyon remains 7th after his victory, but is level with Rennes.
