Dortmund vs Monaco by MarcLonsain

Dortmund
VS
Monaco
Because of the attack on the Dortmund bus this clash has been rescheduled and will be played tonight. The hosts, Dortmund, are very strong in their own Signal Iduna Park and that is well known. Normally you would say that they are almost unbeatable at home. But despite of the good results in the group stage it seems that Dortmund are not only struggling in the Bundesliga. They conceded 9 goals in this group stage and only managed to keep two clean sheets against legia and against sporting. Dortmund is a strong team in attack, but they look vulnerable in defence. On top of that they will miss Bartra due to the attack of yesterday and he will be missed in the already vulnerable looking defence of dortmund. Bartra is not the only injured player on the Dortmund side. Reus, Schürrle, Götze and Castro will most likely not play as well. Missing these players wil decrease the offensive options that Dortmund has and we have seen the result of it in their last Bundesliga game. Of course they were playing against a strong Bayern, but the only produced 3 shots on target this match. It is clear that missing these players affects them a lot. Also the attack of yesterday will possibly affect the players mentally.

 

AS Monaco already showed what they are worth this Campions League. The visitors are able to score quit easily but also seem a little vulnerable in defence. Their group stage was not that fantastic but afterwards they showed some great football against a strong Manchester City with 6 goals over two matches, but also conceding 6 goals. In lique 1 AS Monaco are on top with 3 points ahead of Paris. And in Lique 1 they are scoring a lot of goals as well with 88 goals in 31 matches, which makes an average of almost 3 goals per match. With Mbappe and Falcao Monaco are really strong in forward and have shown great quality. Monaco will most likely play without the injured midfielder Bakayoko and defender Sidibe. Sidibe is not sure and might play. Both will be missed but as already told there is a lot of offensive power left in this team and they will score one or more goals in this game for sure. Lemar en Mbappe got some rest the previous match against Angers where Dortmund were not able to rest anyone in the clash against Bayern München.

 

So Dortmund is dealing with a lot of injury's, especially forward players and midfielders. They only managed to create 3 shots on target in their last Bundesliga match against Bayern and might have a hard time dealing with the attack of yesterday mentally. AS Monaco is at full strength offensive and only misses Bakayoko and maybe Sidibe, they do score easily and a lot so I do see them pick a goal or more in this game. AS Monaco had the chance to train yesterday and should be fully focused, where the preparations of Dortmund got disturbed. This being said I actually think that Monaco should get a win here in Dortmund, but to play it a little safe I will go for X2 at 2.40.
