Thierry Henry’s Monaco are out of the relegation zone as the Ligue 1 club moved to 17th with a win over Amiens on Tuesday.

It was the first time they would drop out of danger in 10 weeks,

Monaco held on for a 2-0 victory over Amiens, who entered the match one spot ahead of the principality club in 18th place.

The two goals were scored by striker Radamel Falcao via penalties on 43rd and 90 minute.

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.

In another match, Nice extended their unbeaten run under Patrick Vieira to six games with a 0-0 draw at home to Angers, who saw goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle dismissed in the closing stages.

PSG will be without Neymar as they look to continue their undefeated record in Ligue 1 this season on Wednesday’s trip to Strasbourg.

The world’s most expensive player came off early in the second half in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Bordeaux after hurting the same groin he injured playing for Brazil against Cameroon last month. (NAN)
