Monaco – RB Leipzig – UEFA Champions League: 21st November 2017
Under the G-League of the Champions League on Tuesday, starting at 21:45, the Monaco-RB Leipzig will be played. With just two points accumulated so far, hosts need a win to hope for spring European. The confrontation will take place on Stade Louis II.
The competitive break seems to have been a good omen for the hosts, who made a new step in the fight for the title. Although they have evolved against the Amiens code, they have only scored one result, score 1-1. Things could have been worse if Jovetic did not score the equalizer goal just six minutes after entering the field. Transferred in the summer of Inter, the Montenegrin striker was at his second success for the French. Staying 6 points behind the PSG leader, Jardim’s band is now heading all the attention to the Champions League, where success is absolutely necessary. However, in the previous two games played on his own field he failed to get even one point.
On the other hand, guests come in turn after a tie. Although Leverkusen moved on and had an extra man in the 52nd minute, the “bull” managed only a 2-2. Thus, they remained with only one victory won in the last five games played in all competitions. In fact, this year’s foreign season developments were rather disappointing. Things were the same in the UCL, where they lost to the two goals gap with Porto and Besiktas
