Lemar scored as Monaco beat Cote d’Azur rivals Nice 2-1 at the Allianz Riviera on Tuesday to reach the French League Cup semi-finals.

Lemar, who has been heavily linked with a move to England, nodded Monaco into an early lead, before Alassane Plea equalised after a video review.

Monaco moved back in front before half-time through 21-year-old Adama Diakhaby and Leonardo Jardim’s French champions held on with the aid of a terrible miss by Nice midfielder Pierre Lees-Melou.

“This victory was deserved and it is very important for our fans,” said Monaco coach Jardim after his side’s sixth straight win.

“Diakhaby is progressing, even if he’s not doing everything right, he’s young and we believe in him.”
