Monaco Set New Ligue 1 Record, win 15 consecutive matches

Monaco set a new Ligue 1 record as a 1-0 win at Metz made them the first team to win 15 consecutive matches in the French top flight. The 15th straight win saw Monaco pass Bordeaux to earn their place in the record books. Bordeaux achieved their 14-in-a-row feat in 2009, spanning the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.
After finishing last season with 12 successive wins and clinching the championship, Monaco have begun this campaign by seeing off Toulouse, Dijon and Metz.
Falcao struck after being fed by an exquisite chip over the Metz backline by substitute Rachid Ghezzal. The left-footed pass forward was carefully controlled by Falcao who ran wide of Metz goalkeeper Thomas Didillon and crashed the ball into the net from close range.
