A shock, a real one. Winner of Strum Graz two weeks ago, Monaco challenges this Thursday a very attractive Real Sociedad team, which was held in check by PSV Eindhoven during the first day of the Europa League (2-2), but achieves a Superb start to the season in La Liga with a second place after 7 matches.
For the Monaco reception, Imanol Alguacil is deprived of several important players: David Silva, Asier Illarramendi, Alexander Sørloth, Nacho Monreal and Alexander Isak. According to the Basque press, Real Sociedad should evolve in 4-3-3 with in particular the French defender Robin Le Normand.
The probable line-up of Real Sociedad: Remiro – Zaldua, Elustondo, Le Normand, Muñoz – Guevara, Zubimendi, Merino – Januzaj, Portu, Oyarzabal
As for AS Monaco, Niko Kovac is deprived of Harisson Marcelin and Cesc Fabregas, but can otherwise count on all his living forces. ASM should appear tonight in 3-4-3 at Anoeta with in particular Sofiane Diop rather than Aleksandr Golovin. The Team also sees Eliot Matazo start in the middle instead of Youssouf Fofana.
The probable composition of Monaco: Nübel – Sidibé, Maripan, Badiashile – Martins, Matazo, Tchouaméni, Caio Henrique – Volland, Ben Yedder, Diop
The Real Sociedad-AS Monaco match will be broadcast at 6:45 p.m. on RMC Story and RMC Sport 2 and can also be followed live on DailyMercato here.
