Monaco will take on Trabzonspor, the visitors in round 3 of the UEFA Europa League group stage. The match will take place at Stade Louis II in Monaco on Thursday, October 6.
Montenegro is again limited to the Europa League. The Monegasques were eliminated from the Champions League qualification in 2021. They lost to Shakhtar Donetsk, Kharkiv by an own goal. Niko Kovacs was soon out of the job. Philippe Clement, his replacement, was able return the club to third place in Ligue 1. The Belgian, however, failed to qualify for the Champions League. It’s also a shame that they lost in extra time to PSV after leading Eindhoven 2-1 at home. They must limit their efforts to the Europa League. It won with a score of 1-0 against Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade. They lost to Ferencvaros at home with the same score.
Transzonspor is not as strong as last season. The “Burgundy blue” – Turkey’s champion club, although it isn’t based in Istanbul. It was impossible to regain the title, and the maximum was 2. The triumph of 2021/2022 was brighter – Abdullay Avji’s wards issued the “gold” earlier than expected. The project was not as convincing after the summer holidays. The return to Champions League was a defeat by Copenhagen (1-2, 0-0). Trabzonspor, who had moved to the Europa League began the group stage in Budapest along with Ferencvaros with 2-3. They beat Crvena Zvezda at their field. Trezeguet, the Egyptian player, assisted Gamsik and then scored his own goal. Only in the 89th minutes, the Serbs were able issue a classic “goal for prestige”
Monaco and Trabzonspor both have a lot of international activity. These two ambitious clubs from France, Turkey and Turkey didn’t even meet at a friendly level. Both sides have their doubts. Monaco still plays on its own turf, and it seems a bit more convincing. We bet that Clement’s Wards will win.
Prediction: Monaco to Win.
