Paris,(AP/UNB) – French champion Monaco got back to winning ways with a 2-0 home win against Caen on Saturday.Monaco lost three and drew one of its previous four games in all competitions. But coach Leonardo Jardim’s side was largely in control against a Caen side that started brightly and faded after Keita Balde’s opening goal and first for Monaco.“It was important to win, to get a bit of confidence back,” Jardim said. “We’ve been working hard and the players were very serious today.”Captain Radamel Falcao scored his league-leading 13th from the penalty spot in the 59th, confidently sending goalkeeper Remy Vercoutre the wrong way.The win moved second-place Monaco within three points of Paris Saint-Germain, having played one game more.
