Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Fenerbahce will be looking to defend their slim lead in the tie against Monaco when the two teams face each other at Stade Louis II on Wednesday evening. Nigerian attacker Emenike scored a brace in the first leg, but it remains to be seen if that is going to help the Turkish outfit book their place in the Champions League play-offs. Over the years Monaco have turned their Stade Louis II into a real fortress and they are Radamel Falcao and Co. are certainly capable of overcoming the deficit in the second leg. The Colombian Tiger found the net in the first leg and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line in Wednesday’s football match. It is well known that Fenerbahce often struggle on the travels and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Ligue 1 outfit are going to emerge triumphant in the second leg.
Highlighted Player (Radamel Falcao):
Radamel Falcao, nicknamed the “Colombian Tiger”, is considered one of the best players in the history of Colombian football. The 177-cm-tall attacker is well known for his brilliant finishing and his header technique gives him an advantage in aerial battles with opposition defenders.
Falcao was born in Santa Marta, Colombia on 10 February, 1986 and he started his senior career at Lanceros Boyaca. He played for Argentine giants River Plate between 2005 and 2009 and in 2009 he joined Porto. After scoring 41 goals in 51 league appearances for the Dragons, Falcao signed for Atletico Madrid on 18 August 2011 for a fee of €40 million.
The Colombian attacker helped los Rojiblancos win Europa League trophy in 2012, scoring 12 goals in the process. He played for Monaco in the 2013/2014 Ligue 1 campaign and in 2014 he signed a loan deal with Manchester United. He scored just 4 goals in 26 league appearances for the Red Devils and was later loaned to Chelsea before returning to Stade Louis II.
