Champions League Preview: Juventus v AS Monaco

Champions League Preview: Juventus v AS Monaco

The quarter-finals of the Champions League are upon us, and two French teams are involved. While the PSG project is the best-known big-money outfit representing Ligue 1, Monaco are perhaps the more interesting team. After a boatload of investment having won promotion for the 2013/14 season, issues chez Rybolovlev have led to cutbacks, and the departure of many of the big-name stars who helped them to a second-place finish – James Rodriguez to Real Madrid, Radamel Falcao…

How Monaco are Expected to Lineup against Arsenal

Monaco have a few issues going into Wednesday’s Champions League tie with Arsenal. At least eight first-team regulars are set to start, but there are a few doubts, which give Coach Leandro Jardim some food for thought before selecting his eleven. Jardim will set his team up to play 4-3-3 – they will be compact in midfield and look to hit on the break. Danijel Subasic will start in goal. The Croatian has enjoyed an…

AS Monaco v Stade Rennais: Coupe de France Preview

Are the wheels starting to come off the Monaco revival? Just a week ago, they were still going strong in both cups, had reached the Champions League knockout round (Arsenal await!), were up to joint-fourth in Ligue 1, and were in the midst of a nearly 800-minute shutout streak, having not conceded a league goal since November. Now, though, just a few days later, they’ve gone out of the Coupe de la Ligue on penalties…

Debut Goal for Lucas Ocampos Marseille’s Last Gasp Transfer

One of the most interesting moves of the January transfer window was the loan of Argentine winger Lucas Ocampos from Monaco to Marseille – particularly when it looked like it might not happen. How ironic that he would go on to save Marseille’s blushes this weekend. With the clubs in agreement, somebody pointed out that Monaco had made too many loans already. According to LFP Regulations (article 266), teams can only have seven players out on…

AS Monaco Made An Offer for Manchester United’s Target

Brazil international and recent Manchester United target, Everton Ribeiro has confirmed that his former club Cruzeiro rejected an offer from Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco before he signed for Al-Ahli on deadline day.
