Monaco ends its internship in style


Against Portimonense SC in a friendly match this Saturday, at the end of their training camp in Portugal, the Red and Whites won 2-0, thanks to goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Youssouf Fofana.

A victory to close the training camp in Portugal! Before flying back to the Principality, the Red and Whites beat Portimonense SC (2-0) this Saturday at the Estadio Municipal Fernando Cabrita in Lagos.

Three days after the draw against Austria Vienna (2-2) on the same lawn, Philippe Clement decides to field an eleven quite different from that of the previous meeting, with in particular a Matazo-Jean Lucas duo in the midfield, the return of Benoît Badiashile as holder and the resumption of Wissam Ben Yedder.

Wissam Ben Yedder opens his counter

Facing a team 12e of the last Portuguese championship, the Monegasques faced a solid opposition but still managed to create danger, in particular forcing the goalkeeper to two good saves on strikes from Aleksandr Golovin (12e) and Kevin Volland (25e). Radoslaw Majecki also works on a vicious free kick from Rui Gomes (38e), but it was ultimately Monaco who found the fault through the inevitable Wissam Ben Yedder, well served by Gelson Martins after a nice collective movement (1-0, 43e).

After this first goal of the season from the Monegasque captain, the second half was less animated, in particular due to the many changes made by the two coaches. On the Monegasque side, the entire eleven is modified between the recovery and the 62e minute, with in particular the first minutes in this preparation by Myron Boadu.

Youssouf Fofana takes a break

If the actions are rather rare, the majority is in favor of AS Monaco, with a shot from Youssouf Fofana captured by the goalkeeper (67e), but especially the post found by Mohamed Bamba in a tight angle after clearing the goalkeeper (78e). And if Yllan Okou, with a double attempt, fails to make the break (88e), Youssouf Fofana takes care of it, in two stages too, after a nice deep serve from Myron Boadu (2-0, 89e).

Meeting against Inter

Still undefeated in this period of preparation, the Monegasques will now continue their work at the La Turbie Performance Center and will face Inter Milan on July 16 (8:30 p.m.) for their next friendly match. Nice job guys!
