Prestige match for Monaco at Louis II

AS Monaco will meet with Borussia Dortmund in the 6th round of the Champions League group stage in Group A at the Louis II stadium tonight.

In this quartet, Atletico and Borussia have already reached the Champions League playoffs, but this group’s Europa League representative was rather unexpected.

After the draw, a majority of experts assumed that one of the fiercest battles for qualifying into the playoffs would take place in that group. However, unfortunately for fans, their expectations were shattered. Most of them were frustrated by Monaco, who were failing the season on all fronts. The Monegasques scored only one point in 5 matches and deprived themselves of the chance for the European spring.

AS Monaco won’t face any tournament tasks in this match. As for the Germans, they still can climb from second place to first. To do this, they need to beat Monaco and hope that unmotivated Brugge will take points away from Atletico in Madrid. Only in this situation Borussia will reach the playoffs from first place and can hope for a happy lot at the ⅛-finals stage.

Possible line-ups:

AS Monaco: Benaglio — Biancone, Jemerson, Mukinaj, Raggi — Diop, Massengo, Tielemans, Henrichs — Sylla, Falcao

Borussia Dortmund: Burki — Hakimi, Akanji, Diallo, Schmelzer — Witsel, Dahoud — Pulisic, Gotze, Guerreiro — Alcacer

Referee: Craig Polson
