Makeover of Casino Square to dramatically change the look of Monte Carlo

Monaco victory virtually ensures Ligue 1 safety

Monaco victory virtually ensures Ligue 1 safety

By Staff Writer - May 19, 2019

Monaco has virtually made sure of their French Ligue 1 survival with a 2-0 win over Amiens on Saturday.

Radamel Falcao and Alexsander Golovin scored in either half at the Stade Louis II to take Monaco to 36 points and three above the drop zone with one match left to play.

While Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim was cutting a relieved figure, he found himself discussing the fact that Falcao was not wearing an anti-homophobia armband which had been distributed by the league.

“I was using Falcao’s armband, I wore it,” said Jardim. “The most important thing that somebody from the club wore it and applied what was demanded of us by the league.”

Monaco, the 2017 champions, are not mathematically safe but they have a three-point lead over Caen who occupy the relegation play-off spot with a goal difference of seven.
