Monaco rally to open three-point lead in Ligue 1

17/04/2017

Monaco restored their three-point lead over Paris Saint-Germain at the summit of Ligue 1 after coming from behind to defeat Dijon 2-1 at Stade Louis II on Saturday.

Cedric Varrault gave the visitors a surprise lead shortly before half-time when he bundled home after keeper Danijel Subasic failed to clear a long-range header.

Monaco clicked into gear in the second-half, first through a long-range free kick by Nabil Dirar who drove an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.

Radamel Falcao then nudged Dijon closer to relegation when he also beat keeper Baptiste Reynet with a free kick.
