PARIS, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Radamel Falcao's third goal of the campaign could not earn Monaco three points as last season's runners-up extended their winless streak in Ligue 1 to five matches with a 1-1 draw against promoted side Nimes on Friday.
Snatching their only win in the season opener, Monaco currently rank 12th, nine points adrift leaders and defending champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Following midweek's UEFA Champions League defeat to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid, Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim introduced fresh faces into his starting line-up, but that didn't change the hosts' sluggish performance since the season start too much.
Nimes captain Anthony Briancon powered a header past goalkeeper Diego Benaglio for his first ever Ligue 1 goal in the 19th minute.
Falcao found an equalizer eight minutes later with his powerful shot beyond Paul Bernardoni from 25 meters.
PSG, who keep their winning record intact after five rounds, will visit Rennes on Sunday.
