Monaco players get taxis to stadium after team bus breaks down

AS Monaco had to use taxis to get to the stadium after their bus broke down but their tale of woe this season was finally ended by Radamel Falcao's header in a 1-0 win at Nantes on Sunday.

The big spenders, who sold World Cup top scorer James Rodriguez to Real Madrid in July, had lost their opening two Ligue 1 encounters and rode their luck at times in Nantes.

Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic gave away a penalty midway through the first half but saved Serge Gakpe's spot kick.

Monaco are 17th in the table, which is led by Bordeaux after Saturday's 3-1 victory at Nice made it three wins out of three. Stuttering champions and title favourites Paris St Germain are sixth on five points following Friday's 0-0 draw at Evian.
