Ligue 1: Monaco striker Radamel Falcao suffers knee injury
Monaco's progress to the Coupe de France last 16 may have come at a cost after Radamel Falcao suffered a knee injury.

The Colombian surprisingly started against the fourth-tier outfit, in a side otherwise much-changed from the weekend win over Toulouse, and he scored the first of Monaco's three goals in the 29th minute.
But he was then caught by a tackle from MDA defender Soner Ertek shortly before half-time, for which Monaco were perhaps unlucky not to be awarded a penalty.
Falcao did not return after the interval, Emmanuel Riviere taking his place.
A club statement after the match read: "Radamel Falcao took a blow to the left knee. We must await further tests in the coming days to determine the exact nature of the injury."
Riviere scored twice in the second half to wrap up a 3-0 win over the team captained by former Monaco favourite Ludovic Giuly.
