Leonardo Jardim’s side secured a comfortable 3-1 victory to keep the pressure on the Champions League hopefuls in the French top flight
AS Monaco were in dazzling form as they defeated Evian Thonon Gaillard 3-1 in Ligue 1 on Saturday.
Anthony Martial opened the scoring on 18 minutes, profiting from uncertainty in Evian’s defence to fire powerfully into the roof of the net.
Just over 15 minutes later, it was 2-0. Dimitar Berbatov demonstrated the class that once made him such an admired talent in the Premier League, waltzing through the Evian defence before rounding Benjamin Leroy and firing home against the helpless Kassim Abdallah.
Right-back Almamy Toure bagged a third on the hour mark, before Modou Sougou’s late effort added a veneer of respectability to the scoreline for the home side.
