Monaco vs Fenerbahce: Preview and Prediction

Monaco vs Fenerbahce:
Champions League Qualifiers.
Date: Wednesday, August 3, 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Venue: Stade Louis (Monaco).

French Ligue 1 side Monaco will welcome Turkish Fenebahce at Stade Louis II in a bid to upturn a one goal deficit and get a chance into the next round of the UEFA Champion League.

Monaco lost the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round, they went down in the 39th minute, but Falcao pulled them level 2 minutes before half time but their opponents struck again in the 61st minute to beat them 2-1. They now need just a 1-0 win to qualify for the next phase of the competition.

Fenerbahce will get ready to defend their lead against Monaco as they travel for the second leg encounter, Emmanuel Emenike’s brace helped them overcome the Ligue 1 side, the Nigerian born striker scored the opener in the first half and also scored the winner in the second half. The now hope to hold on to the lead to qualify them for the next phase.

Monaco vs Fenerbahce: Head to Head

The first leg of this fixture is the only previous meeting between the sides, as it went Fenerbahce’s way.

Besides Fenerbahce, Monaco have played against one Turkish side in the past (Galatasaray). They have won 3 of their 6 games against them, they have lost 2 and drawn 1. Fenerbahce’s defeat made it their 2nd defeat on Turkish soil.

Fenerbahce have played 18 previous games against a Ligue1 side, they have won 5, drawn 3 and lost 10 times.Fenerbahce have lost 7 times in France and won just 2 games in France.

Monaco vs Fenerbahce: Prediction

This Champions League game seems to be the only football activities both teams have been involved in this summer. Monaco have a good record against Turkish teams, and are also good at home against Turkish teams. Fenerbahce are very poor against French teams, they are very bad on French soil. They have conceded 40 goals against French sides and scored 21.

I predict a win for Monaco, but I expect the two sides to score in the game.

Monaco vs Fenerbahce: Tips
