Monaco 1-1 Saint-Etienne: Martial volley earns host a point

Monaco players celebrate Anthony Martial's equaliser


European hopefuls Monaco and Saint-Etienne shared the spoils in Friday's 1-1 draw at the Stade Louis II.

Anthony Martial's impressive volley earned Monaco a 1-1 draw against a Saint-Etienne side also hoping to gain a continental qualification spot.

The two remain separated by just a point after scoring a goal each in the space of six second-half minutes, leaving Monaco third and its guest one spot below it.

Following a goalless first half, Leonardo Jardim's side conceded its first Ligue 1 goal at the Stade Louis II since November's 2-2 draw with Caen.

Mevlut Erdinc angled a header from Franck Tabanou's cross that left Danijel Subasic with no chance two minutes after the hour.

However, Martial had the final say when he crashed home a volley to ensure a draw.

Layvin Kurzawa crossed from the left and Martial stole in unmarked to hammer an effort past Stephane Ruffier, registering his fifth goal in as many games in the process.
