Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Stade Louis II when Monaco and Villarreal take on each other in the Champions League play-offs, return leg. The Yellow Submarine suffered a 2-1 loss to les Rouges et Blancs in the first leg at their Camp el Madrigal, meaning that they need to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s football match if they are to overcome the deficit. Defender Eric Bailly, who joined Manchester United in the summer transfer window, was sorely missed in the first leg and seeing that Monaco play well in front of home fans, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in the return leg. Leonardo Jardim’s team kicked off the new Ligue 1 campaign with a 1-0 win over Nantes and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon. It has to be noted that Monaco are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Champions League, speaking of home fixtures.
