The perfect shot for Montpellier, Mavididi offers himself a double, the defensive fragility of Monaco… Find our Tops and Flops of Montpellier-Monaco (3-2).
Stephy Mavididi in her garden
The left winger of the Montpellier team will have been the great architect of his team’s success. Against Ruben Aguilar, Stephy Mavididi shone with his technical quality. He also showed his physical power in the offensive sector to allow his team to go up the block. Always present to make a deviation towards a partner, the Englishman was opportunistic. Served in depth by Cozza, he made his sense of goal speak to allow his team to snatch victory (90 + 1st).
Elye Wahi rises in power
Expelled against Strasbourg two weeks ago, Wahi has not (yet) served his suspension. What makes the business of Montpellier since it was illustrated just before the quarter of an hour of play, allowing the Montpellier players to take the lead on the scoreboard (13e). A fox goal from the surfaces. Apart from his goal, his agreement with Mavididi has been good for the MHSC attack. A young duo who will have brought freshness to the attack which mixes with defensive experience.
Aurélien Tchouameni equal to himself
The international environment has established itself as a leader in the midfield. Even if the Monegasques leave with regrets, Aurélien Tchouameni can be happy with his performance on a personal level. The French player thought he was helping his team to hold a precious point in the race for Europe, but Olivier Dall’Oglio’s attackers decided otherwise. Philippe Clement can appreciate his player’s copy. Monaco holds its leader in midfield.
Valère Germain inside
The former Marseillais remained in the shadow of the Wahi-Mavididi duo for 87 minutes. Discreet and silent, Valère Germain has done many races in the shadows without getting opportunities. Replaced by Junior Sambia, his trainer sends him a strong signal by leaving Stephy Mavididi. A paying choice that proves Dall’Oglio right. The competition on the offensive front is launched.
Caio Henrique, a more offensive than defensive side
The Brazilian left-back made a lot of runs to accompany his team’s offensives. But, that at a price. The defensive efficiency is no longer the same. On the first two goals of the Héraultais, it is on the left side that the solution has come. With a defense in difficulty in this meeting, the offensive contribution of Caio Henrique did not have the expected effect. The Brazilian will have to be more patient in the future.
