EUROPA: Champions League – Group Stage
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
The forthcoming battle of two underdogs of group G is extremely important both for hosts and for guests of the famous football arena Louis II. The team that will lose this match will lose also even theoretical chances for getting into the first round of play-off:
Group G: Beşiktaş – 10, Porto – 6, Leipzig – 4, Monaco – 2;
It is obvious that the vice-champion of Germany is now at more advantage ground. But we doubt that the guests will be pleased with goalless draw …
FC Leipzig Germany (the head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl)
During 4 last rounds of the group stage the vice-champion of German Bundesliga has won only one home victory over Porto (3:2). And one more point Leipzig has earned at home arena at the match against Monegasques (1:1).
But two away matches of the teams of Ralph Hasenhüttl had ended with two final defeats in Istanbul (2:0) and in Porto (3:1). This fact speaks about absolutely different level of game of Leipzig at home arena and abroad. .
Monaco France (the head coach Leonardo Jardim)
The semi-finalist of the previous championship of the Champions League is experiencing now some difficulties. According to the results of last rounds the team that had destroyed this spring Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund, is now up in the air.
It is natural that in two left meetings against Leipzig (on the 21st of November) and Porto (on the 6th of December) Monegasques need only two victories. But at the same time, the champion of France has to hope for the fiasco of the Dragons at the match of the 5th round in Istanbul.
So, let us summarize! Neither hosts nor the guests of football arena Louis II will be pleased with goalless or resultative draw. And that is why, the teams of Ralph Hasenhüttl and Leonardo Jardim will furiously fight for the victory.
Monaco – 2.25, draw – 3.50, Leipzig – 3.00;
