Atletico Madrid – Monaco
Atletico Madrid welcomes Monaco in a match from Group A of the UEFA Champions League. This game is going to be played at the Wanda Metropollitano in Madrid on Wednesday night. Let’s take a look.
Atletico Madrid are currently engaded in a fight for the first place in the group with Borussia Dortmund. Both teams have 9 points won so far, but Dortmund are leading the group because of a better goal difference. In the same time the German side hosts Club Brugge at the Signal Iduna Park.
Atletico dissapointed their fans with a crushing 0-4 defeat against Borussia Dortmund on German soil, but soon after this they avenged the loss with a 2-0 win against Dortmund at the Wanda Metropolitano. Saul and Antoine Griezmann scored for the Spanish side, saving their chances for the first place in the group.
Monaco on the other hand just enjoyed their first win under the management of the legendary Thierry Henry. This happened in Ligue 1, where Monaco beat Caen with 1-0 away from home.
Henry replaced the sacked Leonardo Jardim and now he has the tough task to make Monaco bounce back on their feet. In the Champions League Monaco are currently 4th in the group with just 1 point won. They still have a theoretical chance to beat Club Brugge for the 3rd place in the group, but it’s safe to say that their priority at the moment is survival in the Ligue 1.
In their last game in the Champions League Monaco suffered a devastating 0-4 loss against Club Brugge at home, which can tell you about the condition this club currently finds itself.
These are our thoughts about the Champions League clash between Atletico Madrid and Monaco from the Champions League group stage. Good luck!
