HENRY’s MAGIC?!!! Falcao penalties lift Monaco out of relegation zone

Radamel Falcao scored a pair of penalties as Thierry Henry’s Monaco won 2-0 at fellow strugglers Amiens to climb out of the bottom three in Ligue 1 on Tuesday.

The Colombian had missed twice from the spot this season but calmly converted on 43 minutes at the Stade de la Licorne after Emil Krafth upended Benoit Badiashile.

Amiens defender Bakaye Dibassy was sent off for catching the Monaco captain with a raised boot in the 90th minute, and Falcao wrapped up a second victory in three games with another penalty deep into stoppage time. The result provisionally bumped Henry’s side up to 17th place above Dijon and Amiens on goal difference, confirming their recent upturn under the former France star in recent weeks.
