Monaco’s poor start to the new season continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw by promoted Nimes.
Antonin Bobichon gave Nimes the lead after 19 minutes but Colombian striker Radamel Falcao managed to equalize for Monaco with a deflected shot from outside the box. The former Manchester United and Chelsea striker could have made it 2-1 early in the second half but his shot crashed against the bar from close-range.
Leonardo Jardim’s side sit in 12th place after managing only one win from their opening six games. Monaco finished runners-up to Paris Saint Germain last season but are currently 9 points behind the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
