Falcao fires as Monaco start off with victory

ENGALURU:
Second-half substitute Radamel Falcao scored one goal and provided the assist for another as last seasonís runners-up AS Monaco cruised past Nantes 3-1 for a winning start to their Ligue 1 campaign on Saturday.

Skipper Falcao came on after 67 minutes at the Stade de La Beaujoire and sparked Leonardo Jardimís team into action as they scored three times in 14 minutes to kill off the contest.

Attacking midfielder Rony Lopes got the opener, heading a deflected cross past Nantes goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu in the 69th minute.

Falcaoís clever flick then helped fellow striker Stevan Jovetic double the lead 10 minutes from time. Colombia international Falcao rounded off the scoring by running on to Samuel Grandsirís pass and neatly finishing in the 82nd minute.

Nantes substitute Emiliano Sala pulled one back for the hosts in added time. Newly-promoted Nimes Olympique marked their first top-flight match for 25 years with a comeback victory over Angers in a seven-goal thriller.

Nimes forward Clement Depres scored a brace while Sada Thioub and Renaud Ripart also found the net to cancel out strikes by Pierrick Capelle, Angelo Fulgini and Ismael Traore. Former France and Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira began his career in charge of Nice with a tame 1-0 defeat by Stade Reims.

Nice never recovered from Malian winger Moussa Doumbiaís third minute goal. St Etienne needed a late goal from French forward Lois Diony to seal a 2-1 victory over Guingamp.

Wahbi Khazri had given 10-times Ligue 1 champions St Etienne the lead in the 45th minute before Guingamp equalised through Marcus Thuram, the son of former France defender Lilian Thuram. Lille powered past Stade Rennais 3-1 while Dijon too began with a win by seeing off Montpellier 2-1.
