Gelson Martins was used as a substitute for Monaco, after being released in the 67th minute, replacing Aguilar, in a match where the Monaco side won 1-0 against Nice, with Aleksandr Golovin scoring at 45+2.

Another Portuguese player in action, Abdu Conte, starting at Troeys, left in the 82nd minute, during the 0-1 defeat at home against Clermont, who scored in the 88th minute by Mahomed Bayo.
