Monaco edged further away from relegation trouble in Ligue 1 with a 2-0 win against Lyon on Sunday.
Winger Gelson Martins and midfielder Rony Lopes put Monaco in control early in the game, while Lyon striker Memphis Depay’s second-half penalty was saved. Martins is the first Monaco player this season to score a goal in three consecutive games in Ligue 1.
Monaco, who began the day two points above the bottom three, have leapfrogged Amiens into 16th place.
They have won three and drawn one of their last four league games under Leonardo Jardim, who was reappointed boss after Thierry Henry was sacked in January after just three months in charge.
Jardim called the win an “important victory”.
“The performance sometimes varies but the quality of my players remains the same,” said Jardim. “Today we performed better but we can not rest. We are already thinking about the next match… Our goal is to be at the same level as the best teams in France. For the moment, that’s the case.”
The National Council and government have come together for the 3rd Joint Monitoring Meeting on Covid-19.
As lockdown continues, the fire brigade of Monaco is taking additional steps to ensure the rules of confinement are respected, notably by integrating a drone as part of its public safety repertoire.
The Assembly has unanimously re-elected Stéphane Valeri as President of the National Council, with Brigitte Boccone-Pagès remaining as Vice-President.
Two Monaco-based companies are doing their bit to help during the Covid-19 pandemic.
