Result: Monaco maintain title charge with victory over Guingamp

Monaco defeat Guingamp 2-0 at Stade du Roudourou thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Layvin Kurzawa.

AS Monaco have recorded their fifth straight win in Ligue 1 by overcoming 10-man Guingamp 2-0 at Stade du Roudourou.

First-half goals from Anthony Martial and Layvin Kurzawa were enough to see Claudio Ranieri's men stay within two points of leaders Paris Saint-Germain, who triumphed 3-1 at Rennes earlier today.

The 18-year-old striker opened the scoring in the third minute of the game, beating Guy N'Dy Assembe into the top corner after being set up by James Rodriguez.

Jonathan Martins Pereira received a yellow card for a reckless challenge on Rodriguez in the 19th minute and picked up his second four minutes later for a deliberate handball.

Layvin Kurzawa doubled the visitors' lead with a header from Rodriguez's corner three minutes before the break.
