1 – 0

The game is quite balanced. The first threat is Reims, a leader of the young striker Mbuku who does not pass far from the frame (16th). In contrast, Montpellier shows the Tangiers, with a good strike from the left foot of Mollet well repelled by Rajkovic (33), then a head from Hilton passing near the frame (34). It is quite logical that the two teams join the wardrobe with a purposeful drawstring.

Cafaro unpunished

A few minutes later, Montpellier defender Ristic is ruled out for an error in the position of last defender at Greek striker Donis (69th).

0 – 3

Monegasques is far in the game, like Golovin, very present. But LOSC has offensive arrows that hurt. Victor Osimhen loses a first duel with the returning Subasic (18th), but wins the following one minute later with a nice cross stroke on the right side of the surface (0-1, 19.). Unfortunately, the Nigerian tip comes out immediately after its target, dizzy. Rémy replaces him and will be just as dangerous. After a superb pass from Ikoné, the Lille attack missed the goal (44th). But, like Osimhen, Loïc Rémy Don't miss his second chance. Utilizing the errors in the Monaco defense, he enters the ball with the foot area and pushes the ball under Subasic to make the break just before the break. (0-2, 45. + 2).

Rémy is double

Leonardo Jardim's team quickly get a penalty after the break, Augustine's center was blocked by Soumaoro. Slimani starts, but sees his shot from the right foot being repelled by Lille keeper Leo Jardim, just as inspired in the exercise as teammate Maignan (54th)! Jovetic, who had not played since April last year, returns by replacing Fabregas in time. However, Montenegrin does not prevent AS Monaco from leaving the BKT League Cup. LOSC creates several clear opportunities, stumbling across Subasic (Rémy, 67th, Ikoné, 82nd) ​​or the position (Yazici, 83rd), but Loïc Rémy eventually finds the opening again for a Bradaric center (0-3, 86.) to secure Mastiffs qualifying in the quarterfinals.
