Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund: Preview & Prediction
For this quarter-final of the Champions League, AS Monaco will have to be careful in front of Borussia Dortmund, as the Germans will be extremely revengeful after all the events of the first leg.
Remember, Borussia Dortmund’s bus was the victim of a terrorist attack on the way to the stadium. Marc Bartra was injured in the attack and, above all, the Borussia was not necessarily in the best conditions to face the ASM.
AS Monaco “took advantage” to win 3 goals to 2, but be careful, Dortmund will have to take his revenge. Unfortunately, the Germans will not recover many of their executives, Bartra, Durm, Götze and Schürrle. The only good news is the return of Marco Reus, his second striker.
This weekend, Borussia Dortmund regained a bit of mental freshness by winning 3-1 in front of Eintracht Frankfurt, thanks to Reus or Aubameyang …
Borussia Dortmund will try to win in the Principality, but will have to win 2-0. The Germans are not in a position of strength, especially that far from their bases, in Champion’s League, they have often been defeated in recent months, no one in Madrid, defeat in Lisbon …
In recent years, Borussia Dortmund has been beaten in Madrid, Arsenal, Turin, Lisbon … AS Monaco will therefore have the favors of prognostications, but the Monegasques can also afford to insure and defend.
If AS Monaco will be deprived of Sidibé and Fabinho, the staff will recover T. Bakayoko. The ASM has been on four victories, all competitions combined with successes at home before Lille, FC Dijon … In Champion’s League, AS Monaco is unbeaten this season, a draw in front of Bayer Leverkusen (1-1 ) And three successes in front of CSKA Moscow (3-0), Tottenham (2-1) and Manchester City (3-1).
