The best chance of a goal for Monaco was when they were given a penalty after 69 minutes. However, Captain Radamel Falcao’s shot was blocked by Lille goalie Mike Maignan, denying the lead to the home side.

Monaco keeper Benaglio had a good evening, saving a possible game-changer in the 74th minute. As a consequence of Monaco’s failure to win at home, PSG have taken a two-point lead after two games in France’s Ligue 1.
