AS Monaco urgently needs points. If the victory in the Europa League was good and the draw in Nice (2-2) reassured about the combativeness of the troops, Monaco today has a victory deficit to fill in order to relax the atmosphere and start a rise in the ranking more in line with the club’s status and ambitions. “We have to start a series now, that’s our goal “, suppose Kovac.
On paper, the Saint-Etienne de Puel seems the ideal opponent for the rebound: 19th, the Greens do not succeed, like the defeat conceded Saturday in the cauldron and under the deluge against Bordeaux (1 -2). Volunteer Greens but a little too tender and not helped by the success either lately, despite the efforts of Wahbi Khazri (3 goals).
the replacements of the Allianz Riviera in the eleven
For this 3rd meeting in 6 days, some of the Allianz Riviera replacements (Diop, Volland, Diatta, Aguilar, Pavlovic, Lucas, Boadu) should be called upon to take up the challenge in the eleven. It is up to them to seize their chance to also jump into the right car.
