Radamel Falcao put Monaco back in front in the 82nd minute and the game looked secure when, with three minutes to go, manager Jardim substituted striker Falcao for Carols Vinicius.

Three minutes later, defender Kamil Glik was shown the yellow card that led to a penalty for Montpellier, which Andy Delort converted.

With the score at 2-2, there was still more action before the final whistle as Vinicius was shown the yellow card and Jemerson was shown a red for a second booking offence.

Monaco now sits on 19 points, still in the relegation zone with enough games to go to lift themselves to safety.
