Great play from Monaco, but a 5-3 loss to City

Great play from Monaco, but a 5-3 loss to City

For a time it looked as if Monaco were going to come home with a stunning victory over Manchester City in the Champions League game at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night, taking the lead 3-2 before an equaliser from Sergio Aguero in the 71st minute. After that, Monaco’s hopes were dashed with John Stones finding the back of the net six minutes later and Leroy Sane taking Manchester City to five goals just five minutes later.

Falcao was on great form all night, scoring twice for ASM, and narrowly missing a third in the 85th minute, with Kylian Mbappe providing the third Monaco goal. City enjoyed almost twice the time in possession.

The verdict of all who saw the game was “fantastic football.” For Falcao, this was much more than a return to form – he’s already done that – despite the loss, it was a sweet revenge for his unhappy spell in England’s Premier League before returning to Monaco and a great season in France’s Ligue 1.
