Champions League Qualification,
Date: Wednesday, 27 July 2016,
Kick-off: 19:30 UK.

Monaco will lock horns with Turkish side Fenerbahce for the third qualifying round tie of the UEFA Champions League.

The former Champions League finalist Monaco who came third in last Ligue 1 campaign, will travel to Istanbul to face Fenerbahce of Turkey who finished second behind Beskitas in Turkish top flight last year.

Two ex Manchester United players Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao will play against each other in the game, Falcao left United after an unsuccessful loan spell in 2014/2015, he later joined Chelsea for another unsuccessful 1 year spell before going back to Monaco.

Monaco was unsuccessful in last years UEFA Champions League Third Preliminary round qualifying game, they were sacked by Valencia, but they look forward to progressing further this year.

Fenerbahce have had a poor form in their previous Champions League games, they have failed to score in their last four Champions League games, and will hope to change that in this fixture as they look forward to a home win for an advantage before they travel for the second leg of the game.
