AS Monaco loses its second top scorer, Breel Embolo, hit in the knee.
Fourth in Ligue 1, respectively 5 and 3 points behind OM and Lens (2nd and 3rd),AS Monaco can’t count on Breel Embolo these next few weeks. The 26-year-old Swiss international suffered a knee injury in the last match before the break, against Ajaccio, and must rest for several weeks, as indicated Nice morning.
With 14 goals in 38 matches in all competitions, Embolo is ASM’s second top scorer this season behind Wissam Ben Yedder. And if he was not a starter in the league lately (Philippe Clément starting Eliesse Ben Seghir in support of “WBY”), he was a major asset for the Red and Whites coming off the bench.
The Monegasques resume the championship by receiving Strasbourg on Sunday (5:05 p.m.), before facing Nantes, Lorient and especially Lens, on April 22 at Bollaert.
