Monaco vs Club Brugge
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 6 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Tuesday’s clash at Stade Louis II will be the last chance for the likes of Monaco and Club Brugge to try and catch up with Atletico Madrid in the battle for the second place with a three-pointer here. Whilst the Belgian champions were expected to struggle in this group, Monaco’s failures were certainly a disappointment.
Les Monegasques are just not pulling up any trees this season. They sit second from bottom in Ligue 1 with just 1 victory in 11 matches. The horrendous start to the 2018/19 campaign caused the board to part ways with Leonardo Jardim who enjoyed fabulous runs in the last couple of years in both Ligue 1 and Champions League.
Nevertheless, his replacement, Thierry Henry, is yet to turn a corner for the team which is still winless ever since the former Arsenal forward took charge on October 13th. Henry has a record of a single defeat and two draws in three games in all competitions. The thread includes a 1-1 draw away at Club Brugge in the third round of Champions League.
Monaco vs Club Brugge: Head-to-head
The match played two weeks ago at Jan Breydelstadion was the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams.
Monaco grabbed the lead through Moussa Sylla just after the half-hour mark, but the Belgians came up with the leveller eight minutes later.
There were no goals in the second half.
Monaco vs Club Brugge: Prediction
Club Brugge should head into this in somewhat higher spirits following a demolishing 4-0 victory over Oostende seven days ago. They thus kept ground on Genk who are three points away at the very top of the First Division A standings.
Given both teams lost their opening two games in the continental competition, none of them could settle with a draw here. This, combined with the lack of meticulousness both outfits showed defensively of late, makes both teams to score the best of betting options.
Les Monegasques shipped two or more goals in five of last six matches across competitions. It gives a tremendous value for Club Brugge to net two or more goals on the evening at 2.50 odds.
