RB Leipzig vs Monaco
UEFA Champions League Group-stage – Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 13th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
At Red Bull Arena, Leipzig is hosting Monaco for the first match in the group stage of UEFA Champions League.
By finishing as runner-up of the Bundesliga, Leipzig is to make their first appearance ever in the most prestigious competition.
They are currently the fourth-ranked in Germany, thanks to the two wins, after the initial loss. They are coming from a 0 – 2 win away against Hamburger SV.
Their team has recently been improved with a midfielder Kampl, who was transferred from Bayer Leverkusen for € 20M.
Monaco is starting their competition in the group stage. Last year, they were eliminated in the semi-finals. Juventus defeated them with a combined score of 4 – 1.
They are coming from a loss away against Nice in French Ligue 1, which ended their streak of 5 consecutive wins. They are currently the second-ranked in France. Apparently, their team is in a good shape even though they are left without many valuable players such as Silva, Bakayako, Mendy, and most recently, without Mbappe. On the other hand, they brought some reinforcements to fill the voids, most recently, Jovetic from Inter and Balde from Lazio.
RB Leipzig vs Monaco: Head to head
This match is going to be their first head to head encounter ever.
RB Leipzig vs Monaco: Prediction
Both of them appear to be in a great shape. Leipzig has the advantage because of the home turf, but we still believe betting on the goals is safer than betting on the winner. They both are expected to give their best in this match, since there is no absolute favourite in their group. So, each of the teams have a fighting chance at finishing the group stage as the first-ranked.
