An advantage that was not enough for the men of the Principality, joined in two stages by Rodez. Just before half-time, when Pembélé found Mendes’ header in the top corner (2-1, 42nd). Then at the end of the match, when Abdennour (a former ASM player) found himself alone in front of Didillon to shoot the second Monegasque goalkeeper (2-2).

Golovine sent a match point into the clouds on the fifth shot, and Magassa missed on the sixth, superbly released by Cibois.
