Monaco vs Trabzonspor
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 6 October 2022
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Both Monaco and Trabzonspor are trailing three points below the toppers, and with only a handful of games remaining in the group stage, they are under pressure to start performing at a much better level.
Monaco are part of the French top flight, where they managed to finish third in the table the last season. Disregarding the first-placed PSG, they were trailing only two points below the next best team.
This time around they are placed fifth in the table at the moment, and need a surplus of just six points to climb level with the second-placed squad.
It also needs to be noted that they lost just two times so far in the Ligue 1 this season.
Meanwhile, Trabzonspor are champions of the Turkish top flight, and lost just three times all through the campaign. They had a lead of eight points at the top of the table at the end of their run.
Note that they scored the second-most number of goals in the Super Lig, and conceded the least as well the previous season.
And in the current edition of the Turkish league, they scored the second-most number of goals till now, and are primed to go after a spot in the podium.
A win is a must for both these squads, and it goes without saying that the pair will go after each other for a victory at any cost this Thursday.
