AS Monaco are licking their wounds after a 2-1 loss away to Bordeaux on Sunday. Monaco’s only goal was scored by 17 year-old Pietro Pellegri, his first for the club since joining from Genoa in January at the age of 16. He is the first player born in 2001 to score in Italy’s Serie A and much is expected of him at Monaco.
Bordeaux’s win was sealed by two goals from Guinea forward Francois Kamano, who scored his second in injury time after Bordeaux had failed to score from a penalty in the 89th minute following a lunging tackle by Monaco goalkeeper Diego Benaglio.
After just three games in the new season, AS Monaco now lie in second place behind Paris Saint Germain. The next game in France’s Ligue 1 is at home on Sunday, September 2, to Olympique Marseille. The game starts under floodlights at 21:00.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
