Monaco

Last updated: Tue 18 September 2018 06:52
In Brief

Monaco held by Toulouse on Saturday. Yet to win at home this season. Lopes, Jovetic, Pierre-Gabriel all sidelined. Match comes too soon for Golovin.

Looking Back

Monaco’s difficult start to the season continued on Saturday as they struggled to earn a 1-1 draw against Toulouse. Although Youri Tielemans gave them the lead, they were second best throughout the game.

Leonardo Jardim’s side have just five points through their opening five Ligue 1 fixtures of the season, of which they have picked up only one win – and none in their last four.

Monaco have failed to win either of their fixtures at Stade Louis II so far this season. They were held to a scoreless draw against Lille and were then defeated 3-2 by Marseille prior to the international break, when they held a 2-1 lead going into the final 20 minutes.

Looking Ahead

Andrea Raggi and Danijel Subasic were both expected back in the squad for this encounter, though a lack of match sharpness may mean that they are not able to feature as prominently as they might otherwise. Subasic has been deemed short of fitness.

Numerous key players are missing for the Monegasques. Rony Lopes faces another couple of weeks out because of thigh trouble, while a calf issue will sideline Stevan Jovetic. Full-back Ronael Pierre-Gabriel is absent, too. Young attackers Pietro Pellegri and Willem Geubbels will not be fit either.

Aleksandr Golovin has started running again, but this game will come too soon for him.

Radamel Falcao will start after being benched at the weekend following international duty.

Points of Interest

Vice president Vadim Vasilyev has been forced to defend the club’s early-season form, which has been disjointed. He has said that it will take several weeks for Monaco to show their best, pointing out similar problems in 2016, when they reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Atletico Madrid

Last updated: Tue 18 September 2018 08:57
In Brief

The only suspension Atletico Madrid have for this one is a touchline ban for coach Diego Simeone. They have injuries to Santiago Arias, Vitolo, Stefan Savic and Nikola Kalinic.

Looking Back

Atletico Madrid may have won the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid to start their season off well, but they have struggled in LaLiga so far and have just five points from four games.

Most recently, Atletico Madrid hosted Eibar and, although they played well and were frequently denied by some inspired goalkeeping, they needed a last minute equaliser to draw 1-1.

Looking Ahead

No players are suspended for Atletico Madrid, but coach Diego Simeone must serve a touchline ban which is carried over from last season.

Backup right-back Santiago Arias is out with a rib injury.

Backup winger Vitolo is out with a knee sprain.

Sometimes-starting centre-back Stefan Savic is out with a calf injury and this means Jose Maria Gimenez should start.

Backup striker Nikola Kalinic is out with an ankle injury.

Lucas Hernandez, who has regularly been starting at left-back, had to go into hospital at the weekend with abdominal pain. He has recovered enough to make the squad, but Filipe Luis might be the one to start the game, with Lucas on the bench.

Points of Interest

Atletico Madrid will have to fill their bench with some youth teamers since they have so many absences.
