RB Leipzig vs Monaco by Rahul

This is a matchup between the 2 big surprise acts of season as Leipzig in their first season in the top flight landed in 2nd spot while Monaco upset the odds and won the Ligue 1. Leipzig come into this campaign on the back of a solid victory over Hamburg and Freiburg where they managed to score 6 goals while conceding just 1 in the bargain. The form of Timo Werner has been outstanding as has been on a tear of goals since then netting 6 goals in his last 4 games after that including 3 goals on international duty with Germany last week. Along with the strong attack of players including Sabitzer, Keita, Forsberg, Poulsen and Bruma; he should have enough support to help take the attack to Monaco. Keita and Forsberg are major doubts for this game; but Leipzig should have enough firepower to handle Monaco. Leipzig's defense hasn't been tested on this stage and they were vulnerable when taking on the better teams in Germany like Bayern, Hertha, Dortmund, Gladbach and that might be of concern as Monaco travel to face them.


Monaco were the darlings of the top European leagues; upsetting the odds to beat PSG to the title but more importantly have since been gutted of their key players with the likes of Germain, Mbappe, Mendy, Bakoyoko and Bernardo all getting sold in the off-season. Monaco still have some talented players with the likes of Lemar, Falcao, Coutinho, Fabinho, Glik, Sidibe and Subasic  along with the new blood including Diakabhy, Jemerson; Tielemans, Lopes, Jorge and the newly signed Jovetic; but all of them proved to be ineffectual in their 4-0 embarrassing loss on the weekend against Nice. The defense has shown to be vulnerable as they have now conceded in 6 out of their 8 competitive fixtures for a total of 10 goals in that time. They were particularly vulnerable to the counter attack of Balotelli and Plea on the weekend; and that is something the likes of Werner, Augstin and Bruma could potentially exploit.


Games of Monaco have been entertaining averaging 3 goals per game last season; and one could expect more of the same tonight. With both defenses struggling and teams wanting to make an early impact in this group; we should see a goal glut here. I am backing Over 2.5 Goals & both to score in this encounter.
