Monaco surprisingly finished at the bottom of their group last season after reaching the semifinals a year ago.

Leonardo Jardim’s men had an underwhelming start to the new competitive season. Monaco
Is win-less in four matches (2D, 2L) after starting the Ligue 1 season with a 3-1 win at Nantes.

Atletico also failed to impress at last season’s group stage, yet managed to finish third and eventually went on to lift the UEFA Europa League title.

Now, the things are no different with Atletico Madrid as they dropped points in recent La Liga matches as well. The weekend saw Simeone’s men being held to a 1-1 draw by Eibar before a 2-0 loss at Celta Vigo before the international break.

The Los Colchoneros did start their competitive season in stunning style by clinching the UEFA Super Cup brushing aside arch rival Real Madrid 4-2. They did bag a difficult point away at Valencia before edging past promoted side Rayo Vallecano 1-0.

Their recent crisis is mainly due to far too many individual errors, all from the defensive stalwarts. This doesn’t look like a typical Simeone’s team at this point.

Thus, both teams are in search of a morale boosting win after troubles in recent weeks and there is no better day to do it than Tuesday as they are up against a team with European pedigree.

  • At home, the Ligue 1 outfit lost 1 of the 10 games in the period, won 6 and drew 3.

  • However, they managed just 1 win in French soil from 6 visits, drew 4 and lost 1.

Monaco vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Both teams are shadow of what they used to be in previous seasons and opponents are finding it easy to penetrate their defensive lines. But this is not the only erroneous department, their attack is also guilty of squandering chances, while midfield is guilty of putting defenders and goalkeepers under pressure.

This leave us in an area of uncertainty on what will be the outcome this midweek. So, keep your fingers away from clicking on a full-time result. I would rather go with the goal markets, I do feel that this will be a match to remember for the neutrals.

Monaco vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

  • Both teams to Score at 11/10 (2.10)
