France: Coupe de la Ligue - semifinals
Match start: 21:05 (GMT+1)
In frames of the semi-final of the Coupe de la Ligue will meet Monaco and Montpellier, two interesting French clubs. Monaco continues to develop and Jardim renews his team after summer losses at the transfer market. As for Montpellier, the status of the middle level team of the national football suits this team and corresponds to its squad opportunities.
The club continues to spend money which Monegasques had earned on sale of the football players in summer 2017. So, the contract with the 16-year-old forward from Genoa Pietro Pellegri whose prospects impress has been signed in winter. Also we are glad with the fact that such football players as Falcao, Balde, Roni Lopes, Lemar, Subašić, Fabinho and Glik on whom the framework of new team is built continue to show excellent results. Leonardo Jardim skillfully heads the team and in frames of the Coupe de la Ligue Monaco is among the main favorites of the tournament, having reached already a semifinal stage of the tournament.
This French football club is focused on resale of young football players and earning some money on this process. Montpellier, despite continuous outflow of the leaders, takes the 7th line at the tournament brackets and demonstrates quite good level of football. Now the team has several loanees and several players who already attract interest of more prominent clubs – Mukiele, Skhiri, Roussillon and others. Montpellier can win the berth into the Euro cups in frames of the Coupe de la Ligue that will be difficult to achieve in the championship because of the serious competition.
In this match Monaco will play at home arena and will demonstrate its best line-up. The statistics of head-to-heads of Monaco and Montpellier also speaks completely in favor of the hosts who win in 70% of cases (all matches between clubs are taken into consideration).
