France: Ligue 1
Match start: 15:00 (GMT+1)
On Friday 17th of March in Swiss UEFA Headquarters ¼ finals draw of the Europa Championship was held. It started at 12:00 CET. The main difference of that draw from the previous at the stage of 1st round of playoffs is that the pairs of teams would be determined by the blind draw without the presence of seeded football teams.
The new list of top 8 Europe football clubs includes: Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Barcelona (Spain), Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund, Leicester (England), Juventus (Italy) and Monaco (France).
The red and white Monegasques
The last team that has reached the ¼ finals of the Champions League became Monaco. Let us remember that during the first match at Etihad Stadium the team of Josep Guardiola had won with the score 5:3. That is why during the 2nd leg at home stadium the red and whites had to win with the difference of 2 goals having missed not more than 2 goals (2:0, 3:1 or 4:2). At the end, the team had managed to cope with this difficult task – 3:1.
And now the team of José Jardim came to France, Normandy to meet with Caen (4-4-2):
Subašić- Sidibé, Glik, Raggi, Mendy- Silva Bernardo, Moutinho, Bakayoko, Lema- Germain, Falcao;
Simultaneously with the entry into ¼ of CL Monaco continues to struggle with PSG for the title of the best French team. Monaco was stronger than Bordeaux (2:1).
Now the red and whites will meet with Caen that has disappointed all fans this season. Let us remember that during the previous championship the team of Patrice Garande was fighting for one out of three Champions League berths. Now the main club of Normandy is struggling for survival…
Patrice Garande’s bid: (5-3-2):
Vercoutre – Gilbert, da Silva , Yahia, Ben Youssef , Bessat- Rodelin, Adéoti, Féret- Karamoko , Santini.
And now the team of Patrice Garande will have to meet with the leader and we doubt that it has any chances to gain even one point.
