The European Cup opponents of the Austrian FA clubs AS Monaco and OSC Lille split in round 14 of the Ligue 1 League 2-2.
Salzburg’s next Champions League rival Lille starts perfectly thanks to an early double from Jonathan David. After only five minutes, the striker takes a penalty kick and adds in the ninth minute.
European League opponent Storm Grass should shake off the principality for a while, but comes across Creppin Diatta before breaking the contact goal. Because Strahinya Pavlovic sees yellow and red in the 78th minute, the signals are actually Lille’s victory, but Monaco shows morale and equalized through captain Wissam Ben Yedder (85).
In the table, both teams clearly lag behind expectations: last year’s champion Lille is 12th with 17 points, and Monaco has 19 points in seventh place.
