Monaco vs Leipzig
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 13 September 2017

Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig
AS Monaco team has, before the start of the UEFA Champions League, suffered a “cold shower” and a difficult defeat in the derby of the Cote d'Azur and it was their first defeat in the season, if not counting the loss in the Super Cup at the very start when it was defeated by PSG. Monaco started the championship with three highly victories, while, in the fourth round, in the first derby of Cote d'Azur, mastered Olympique Marseille with 6-1. The opposite happened on Saturday against Nizza, when Monaco lost with 4-0.
The same team was on the field in these two appearances and it was a bit inconceivable that they played so differently, that they lost to Nizza in a similar way that they defeated Marseille, because they have received two goals this time in the first 20 minutes. In the end, however, Monaco sold player, Mbappe, to their biggest rival PSG, but it also brought two valuable reinforcements at the end of the transitional period: Balde and Jovetic. The latter entered from the bench in the last round, while Balde had not yet started. Now the refreshment could be player Ghezzal instead of Lemar.
RB Leipzig, on the other side, played a bad match at Gelsenkirchen at the begining of the season, and they lost to Schalke deservedly, but they showed strength in the next two rounds, and their matches have reminded their followers on those last season’s that brought them the title of vice-champion. Leipzig received the first goal in the second round against Freiburg and then scored four goals in the furious second half. In the last round, the team again dominated in Hamburg and scored goals again in the second half, this time two that were enough for 2-0 victory.
Coach, Hasenhuttl, decided to put Bernard on the right-back instead of Klostermann, while Bruma played instead of the injured player, Forsberg. The worst thing that happened in Hamburg for Leipzig was the injury of the midfielder, Keita, who will not be able to play in this duel, so the newcomer Kampl could jump in instead. Player, Forsberg, recovered and should return to the field, and Y.Poulsen could returntoo.

Probable Lineups:
AS Monaco: Subasic – Sidibe, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Moutinho, Fabinho, Lopes, Ghezzal – Diakhaby, Falcao
RB Leipzig: Gulacsi – Klostermann, Orban, Upamecano, Halstenberg – Demme, Kampl – Forsberg, Sabitzer – Y.Poulsen, Ti.Werner
