He arrived at the perfect time. During his 101st appearance in the jersey of AS Monaco, Kevin Volland scored his first hat-trick with the Rocher club, to allow his team, even if they got scared during the second half, to dominate quite widely Red Star Belgrade (4-1). This success at home allows the players of Philippe Clément, second in group H, to join the Europa League play-offs, where they will face a reverse of the Champions League, next February.

Ajax Amsterdam, FC Barcelona, ​​Juventus… Monaco could afford a gala poster, in just over three months, in C3. Qualified for the next round, the team from the Principality did not miss the opportunity to continue their European adventure, in front of their public at Louis II, where it was the Serbian supporters who were heard the most throughout throughout the evening.

Head, right foot, left foot… The perfect hat-trick for Volland

Very quickly, Volland enjoyed himself by heading a perfect cross, coming from the left, from Caio Henrique (1-0, 5th). Launched on good track, the Monegasques, under the eyes of Guy Stéphan, the assistant of Didier Deschamps came to take some last lessons before the list of the Blues is revealed, next Wednesday, then doubled the bet. Not by Wissam Ben Yedder, rather discreet this Thursday, but by the German, author of a victorious recovery of the right on a service from Krépin Diatta (1-0, 27th).

Upon returning from the locker room, everyone, including the Monegasques, quickly believed that the match was over, after Milan Rodic pushed Aleksandr Golovin’s strong cross into his own goal (3-0, 50th). But Alexander Nübel’s teammates saw Benoit Badiashile totally revive the game, with an uncontrolled tackle on Mirko Ivanic who offered a penalty to the winners of the C1 in 1991. Kanga perfectly transformed the offer (3-1, 54th).

Monaco was even very scared, Ivanic’s goal for the 3-2 (68th) being finally refused by the VAR for an offside position, before the number 4 of Etoile Rouge came close to the frame with a splendid strike (81st). Finally, on a counter where he placed his recovery from the left well, Volland put an end to all suspense (4-1, 88th). While he had only scored one goal since the start of the season, he has completely revived and offered his team the right to dream of a beautiful European destiny this winter.
