Monaco is not going through its best moment. The French team goes penultimate in Ligue 1 and has won only one game of the last 15. It was against Nantes on the first day. Even Thierry Henry, the child prodigy of the Monegasque club, has not been able to correct the team's bad performance. Since replacing Leonardo Jardim as coach, the club lost in Strasbourg, drew against Bruges and lost again on Saturday in Reims. Falcao will be the reference of the Monaco in the attack. The Colombian wants to debut in the current edition of the Champions.
The Bruges has a key opportunity to reach the third place that would give access to the Europa League. This is, in any case, the feeling of the manager of the club, Vincent Mannaert: "In fact, it is our ambition, we are still in the fight, so we have to go all the way," he said. In sports Schrijvers comes at a great time. The Bruges striker has scored four goals in the last three games.
In case of victory, the Belgians will not only distance themselves in third place, but also end a catastrophic series in the Champions League. The Belgian champions have not won a match in this competition since November 2005 (3-2 against Rapid Vienna). That's 13 years without a victory.
