Monaco saw their season take another turn for the worse with a shock 3-1 home defeat by Metz in the French Cup on Tuesday on a sombre night for football in the country after the suspected death of former Nantes striker Emiliano Sala.

Thierry Henry’s struggling side, who are winless at home in the league this season and stuck in the top flight’s relegation zone, failed to bounce back from the weekend’s 5-1 thrashing by Strasbourg. A minute’s silence was held before the last-32 game in tribute to Sala, who is missing presumed dead after a light aircraft he was travelling in disappeared over the English Channel just three days after his move to Cardiff City.
