The French Riviera derby is back once again as Monaco make the short trip to the Allianz Riviera to avenge their earlier loss against the Aiglons at the start of the season. We take a look back at some notable matches between the two Southern sides.
Fransesco Farioli’s men were flying high at the start of the season and extended their unbeaten run with a last minute goal at Stade Louis II thanks to Jermie Boga.
