AS Monaco won against Olympique de Marseille (2-1) at home, Wednesday night, in round 16 of the BKT League Cup.

In this poster of the 16th finals of the BKT League cup, you have to wait until the 12th minute of the game to see the first opportunity. For his debut as a title under the colors of Olympique de Marseille, young striker Marley Aké (18) crosses his shot too much on a serving of Bouna Sarr in the box.

After an early fight in favor of OM, Golovin, who came in to replace Fabregas (14th), served Aguilar in the box which forced Mandanda to intervene. A first notice at the Olympic Cage. And the other opportunity for AS Monaco will be the right one. In the center of Aguilar, Augustine chest control in front of Kamara and continues with a powerful strike from the right (25., 1-0). Mandanda can't do anything.

Crucial Aguilar

Superior Marseillais after their opening score scored the players of Jardim doubled their effort with a goal ofAguilar (40, 2-0), in all good offensive shots. After a strike from former PSG player Augustin, kicked by Mandanda, the ball returns to the left side which closes in a blank goal. With an eleven starting lineup, seven changes from the game against FC Nantes, on the 11th day of Ligue 1 Conforama, AS Monaco returned to the locker room with two goals in advance.

Despite a reaction from OM coach André Villas-Boas, with the entrances to Rongier and Radonjic for the second half, the Phoenicians still cannot lay the lawn of AS Monaco. Conversely, the ASM players are content to retain their advantage for the score, leaving the ball to Marseillais.

It's a glimpse Payet to allow OM to reduce the score (78th, 2-1). Number 10 eliminates Aguilar before turning between the legs of Lecomte who deflects the ball for his own goal. Reinforced, the Olympians will try to get back to the score in the final moments. Without success. AS Monaco won and qualified for the knockout stages of the BKT League Cup.
