The AS Monaco football club has been on something of a roll, as of late. In addition to a streak of big victories in France’s Ligue 1, the team has recently picked up wins in the Coupe de la League and secured a spot in the knockout stages of the 2014 – 2015 Champions League. Now, the Red and Whites have pushed through to the round of 16 for the 2014 – 2015 Coupe de France, thanks to a 2-0 home win over Evian. Clearly, it’s a proud time to be a fan in the Monaco shirt.

It’s not surprising that Monaco is making a big impression in all circles of French football this year—and, indeed, in European football as a whole. In 2013 – 2014, the squad finished as the runner-up in the French Ligue 1 division, trailing just a bit behind Paris Saint Germain.
Early struggles in the 2014 – 2015 season left the wearers of the Monaco shirt in the lower echelons of the Ligue 1 standings table. Since those early week losses, though, the Red and Whites have been chipping away at the deficit, grabbing a bunch of wins along the way, and barely conceding any losses.
The hard work has brought the football club back into the top five slots of the division. With things relatively wide open in the 2014 – 2015 Ligue 1 (Olympique Marseille, Lyon, and PSG have all been battling for possession of the top slot), there’s certainly still some possibility that Monaco could have a championship soccer season on their hands.
The Coupe de France
Only time will tell if the Monaco away jersey 2014 – 2015 will be the garb of a French championship team. In the meantime, the Red and Whites have been making good progress in other avenues of football competition.
One of those avenues has been the 2014 – 2015 Coupe de France, currently in its “round of 32″ stage. Matched up against fellow Ligue 1 competitors, Evian TG, AS Monaco scored a big home win to advance to the next phase of soccer competition.
As the away team, Evian didn’t put up much a fight against the Monaco offense. The team has been floating around near the bottom of the 2014 – 2015 Ligue 1 table, and this French Cup fixture showed off some of the reasons why.
Specifically, Evian just wasn’t able to hang with the talented Monaco squad for a full 90 minutes of play. The two teams looked relatively evenly matched throughout the first half, reaching the midway point of the game with the scoreboard still reading 0-0.
But Monaco took control in the second half, though, with goals from midfielder Lucas Ariel Ocampos and forward Ariel Martial. The two soccer players are both quite young—only 20 and 19, respectively—but both certainly did the Monaco shirt proud in the Coupe de France match.
The Red and Whites will now head off for a round of 16 fixtures in the French Cup, though it is yet undecided which team they will play. The round of 16 traditionally takes place just before Valentine’s Day.
Fans in the Monaco away jersey 2014 – 2015 are hoping that their squad might have what it takes to go all the way in this year’s big French football tournament. Last year, the team made it to the semifinals but was defeated by Guingamp in a 1-3 away match. Guingamp went on to win the cup.
