LIGUE 1 – Monaco and Tchouaméni, “carefree”, are restarted en route to the Champions League

Monaco didn’t doubt for long. In that game against Rennes, which weighed heavily in the final sprint for European places, ASM quickly took the lead but stayed calm, solid. Like a rock, like a rock, the Monegasques equalized and then rolled into the Breton area with worrying efficiency (four shots on target, three goals).

From the 3rd minute, Tait shook Rohazon Park and reminded how dangerous the Bretons are in the first quarter of an hour thanks to an advantage in the penalty area and a header on a Traoré cross. Nine minutes, a deep call and a pass from Golovin, that’s what it took Vanderson to answer him. Why so fast? Aurélien Tchouaméni seemed to have the answer on Prime Video’s mic: “We’re a fairly carefree group, the neo-International confided. (…) The coach is doing a remarkable job, he brings us a lot of composure.

Monaco, the big hit


So relaxed, these Monegasques, that they rolled out quietly. Ben Yedder, started by Volland and well supported by the apathy of the Rennes hinge, then Boadu, served by Vanderson, brought fresh air to Rennes in the second half. It is interesting that the third goal came once again from a substitute. The opportunity for Tchouaméni to underline the importance of the men on the bench: “It’s about being a real group, not 11 players. We’re one of the teams with the best substitutes, and we saw that again today with Myron’s goal (bodu)”

We’re not concentrating on the Champions League

The red-blacks may have found some color at the end of the game and reduced the mark thanks to a Terrier penalty, Monaco was never more worried than that. And this from their equalization. A great performance, no stranger to the Tchouaméni-Fofana middle doublet. “At the moment we are good at Youssoufanalyzed Tchouameni. He’s back in top form and that helps us a lot as a team. You can see our game is working very well.”

“Is it conceivable to go to the World Cup without Giroud but with Ben Yedder and Nkunku?”

Philippe Clément, her coach, went a little further in the Fofana case: “Youssouf can still grow a lot. He’s already doing great things, but the potential is there to grow.”. Under his orders again next season? It seems so, because Clément is already planning. “We are not at the maximum, assured the Belgian. I am sure that we will continue to grow. Certainly next season after a joint preparation.”

But before next season this has to end, and in a very good way, if Monaco is to dream of the Champions League. “But that’s not what we’re concentrating on, Tchouaméni assures us. Before the game against Rennes we never talked about the Champions League. We want to play game after game“. A way like any other to relieve the pressure on results. But the young international will not lead anyone to believe that his people do not feel like trying to shine on the finest European stages.
