Monaco opened their Ligue 1 title defence by coming from behind twice on Friday night for a 3-2 victory against Toulouse at Stade Louis II.

Zinedine Machach scored for the visitors after just six minutes before Jemerson equalled for the champions with a header after 28 minutes.

Radamel Falcao rescued Monaco with the second goal for the home side after Andy Delort had shocked the hosts with a goal for Toulouse 53 minutes into the game.

The thrills continued as, with 20 minutes of the game remaining, Kamil Glik headed home Joao Moutinho’s free kick from close range to rescue Monaco’s fight back.

However, Monaco’s three-point win was somewhat marred when Kylian Mbappe was injured after 74 minutes and had to leave the field with an apparent knee injury. Eighteen-year-old Mbappe scored 26 goals in 44 appearances for Monaco last season and has been the target of transfer bids from Arsenal and Real Madrid.
