In a 4-4-2 game that looks more and more like a potential model team for Monaco next season, Niko Kovac’s men have moved to the Basque Country to face Real Sociedad. With his two points Wissam Ben Yedder and Kevin Volland, who played the first minutes of the preparatory season, Monaco lost in their fifth preparatory match against the Basque Country.
The match had started poorly from the start. From the fifth minute, Axel Disassi was in full recovery and presented Lianuzaj, who did not need to be asked, a golden opportunity to cheat Nobel. Thus, Monaco only tied at the end of the first half, through Alexandre Golovin (42), the opportunist after being stopped by the Basque goalkeeper.
Barely in front of goal
Pressing once they returned from the locker room, Monaco failed to exploit the advantage twice: in the 49th minute, Kao Henrique found the opponent’s small outside net, and Fofana, who entered in the first half, framed his first shot in the 50th minute. A few more minutes Willian Jose punished his players The Rock for their lack of realism in the 69th minute. Fabregas lit the final fuse from entering the area at the end of the game but nothing helped: the final score 2-1.
