French Ligue One: Balogun Shoots Down AS Monaco


Nigeria-eligible forward Folarin Balogun was the hero of the day in Stade De Reim’s away win over AS Monaco on Sunday.

Arsenal’s loanee has been the biggest revelation in the French Ligue One this season after he scored 15 goals before today’s game.

The first half of the keenly contested encounter ended goalless.

Reims upped their game in the second half and their effort paid off quickly in the half as Balogun netted the only goal of the game in the 51st minute.

The youngster was replaced in the 87th minute by Seirhuis as Reims earned the 3 points away from home.

Balogun’s goal against Monaco made it his 16th of the season for Reims.
