- Monaco recorded its biggest away win in Ligue 1 with a 7-0 hammering of Mets at the Stade Saint-Symphorien to move top of the table.
Leonardo Jardim’s men made a fine start when Thomas Lemar opened the scoring after just seven minutes and Valere Germain doubled Monaco’s lead midway through the first half after an assist from Joao Moutinho.
Bernardo Silva made it three in the 39th minute and Metz was dealt another blow at the hour mark when Cheick Doukoure was given his marching orders.
There was no let-up in the final half an hour as Fabinho converted a penalty in the 68th minute, before Guido Carrillo netted a double to pile even more misery on the home side.
Brazilian youngster Boschilia had the final say in the 89th minute to complete Monaco’s record league away victory.
