Betclic Elite: Monaco easily dominate Pau and lead 1-0 in their semi-final


Damaged by Strasbourg in the quarterfinals of Betclic Elite, Monaco ideally kicked off its Championship semi-final against Pau-Lacq-Orthez on Thursday. An undisputed first victory (94-65) against outdated Palois with 15 points from Ouattara and six Roca Team players with ten points or more.

The gap is steadily rising, to 21 points (73-52) at the start of the fourth and final quarter, then 27 points less than five minutes from the final buzzer (81-57) and then 33 points 92-59) in the last two minutes.

The players of Eric Bartecheky, winners of the French Cup in mid-April, will try to lie the statistics, because since the return of Monaco in the first division in 2015, the Palois have won only once in 17 regular season games and playoffs, over the last seven seasons.

Monaco is still chasing its first national title

The next match of this half played in the best of the five matches will take place on Saturday afternoon (4:15 pm), again in the Principality.

Monaco, new big engine of the French championship for several seasons (2nd budget of the Elite behind Villeurbanne), winner of the Eurocoupe (antechamber of the Euroleague) in 2021 and who rose to the quarterfinals of the Euroleague this season, still chasing a first French title.
