In a game of few real clear-cut chances, neither side were able to make the breakthrough at Stade Louis II.
Yassine Benzia, who WAS named up top in place of the hamstrung Alexandre Lacazette, nearly opened the scoring when he fired narrowly over the bar after taking down a pass on his chest on the edge of the box.
After the break, Layvin Kurzawa wasted a good chance when he blazed over the bar after good control to present himself with the opening.
Fabinho was next to try his luck for the home side, but he followed up a jinking run with a weak toe-poke that was easily gathered by the goalkeeper.
In the end, neither side were able to trouble the scorers as both teams settled for a point apiece.
