Two goals from sensational striker, Radamel Falcao ensured that he helped his team through to win over their visiting opponents.

While the keeper had dived low to try and stop the goal, Germain had gone all the way through knocking the ball forward and over the keeper before tapping it into the back of the net.
Monaco saw another goal in the 29th minute when Falcao was able to professionally turn a cross from Benjamin Mandy into a goal.
Falcao went further to score a second goal in the 41st minute which saw him play a one two with Germain, before knocking the ball past Akinfeev to find the net once more.
