Dominant for a long time in the first half, the Rouge et Blanc made the difference on their return from the locker room to finally win, logically, against Stade Brestois 29 (1-0). It’s the team’s second win in two games since the break, and their first in 2023.

It’s two from two! The AS Monaco players recorded a second win in a row this Sunday to start off 2023 at the Stade Louis-II, overcoming a well-organized Brest team, 1-0. These three latest points allow the teammates of Aleksandr Golovin, who scored the match’s only goal, to put pressure on the leading teams.
