The Nigerian played until the 55th minute when he was withdrawn and Albert Elis was thrown into action when Monaco were already enjoying a 2-0 lead.

 

With an assist from Aleksandr Golovin, Aurelien Tchouameni scored Monaco's opening goal in the 35th minute before Golovin himself scored the second goal in the 48th minute with an assist from Wissam Ben Yedder.

 

In the 64th minute, the home side won a penalty and Ben Yedder converted to give his side a 3-0 scoreline that they managed to hold onto and won the three points against Kalu's team.

 

Senegal international Krepin Diatta was involved for Monaco as he came on in the 73rd minute for Gelson Martins. For Bordeaux, Gideon Mensah of Ghana was also involved when he replaced Ricardo Mangas in the 69th minute.

 

At Beaujoire Stadium, Moses Simon's Nantes picked up a 2-0 win against Youssouf Kone's Troyes. Andrei Girotto and Ludovic Blas - through a penalty - scored for Simon's side in the 58th and 69th minutes, respectively. 

 

Jean-Charles Castelletto of Cameroon and Pedro Chirivella, both of Nantes, were yellow-carded in the second minute of added time in the first half and in the 90th minute, respectively.

Gerson Rodrigues (66th) and Nasim Chadli (83rd) are Troyes' players who were cautioned after the break.

Meanwhile, Mamadou Gueye provided an assist as his Metz side went down 3-2 to Angers at Raymond Kopa Stadium.
