Monaco have been showing a few signs of improvement recently under the guidance of Thierry Henry and they are worth backing to manage something from their clash with Borussia Dortmund, thus ensuring that the Bundesliga side don’t finish top of Champions League Group A. The Germans desperately need a win in Monaco in order to be in with a chance of finishing as group winners, however they also need Atletico Madrid to slip-up in their trip to Club Brugge in the other group match on Tuesday evening. Dortmund have already secured their place in the last sixteen of the competition alongside Atletico Madrid irrespective of whatever happens on Tuesday evening, however opponents Monaco are guaranteed to finish bottom of the pile with four points currently separating them from third-placed Brugge and just a single game left to play in the group. Indeed the club from the millionaires’ playground won just one of their opening eighteen games this season although they have won two of their last four and will present Dortmund with tough opposition on Tuesday evening, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Monaco v Borussia Dortmund.
Heading into their weekend Bundesliga meeting with Schalke (result not known at time of writing), Borussia Dortmund’s only defeat this season had been against Atletico Madrid where they lost 2-0 in the Spanish capital, however they handed the initiative to their group rivals by only managing a goal-less draw with Club Brugge in their last European outing. As such, we’re finding it hard to be optimistic about Borussia’s chances against a Monaco side which may have failed to win at home this season but which continue to show signs of recovery and we’ll be siding with the hosts to manage something from this clash, Unibet Bookmakers going 11/10 on Monaco-Draw on Double Chance market.
