Another position already defined is the third, in the hands of the Belgians of Brugge with five points. It will be up to them the right to play in the Europa League in the second half of the season.Thus, the only open fight is for the first place, for the already classified Dortmund, who is in second place with ten points (three wins, one draw and one defeat), and Atletico Madrid, who is 12 and will face, in the same time, the Belgians in Brugge.
Although it is a rather embarrassing situation, due to the current situation in Monaco, where the owner of the club has been jailed in a corruption scandal, early elimination has its positive side. The current French runner-up is threatened with relegation and without continental tournaments he will be able to focus on the fight to remain in Ligue 1.His most recent result was a relief to the fans. Dueling as a direct rival in the fight to avoid falling to the Second Division, the Monegascos as visitors beat Amiens 2-0 to the sixteenth round of the French Championship.They managed, in this way, to leave the sticking region. However, they returned to Z3 after their match on Matchday 17, which would be held over the weekend, was postponed at the club’s request. Thus, with 13 points (three wins, four draws and nine losses), the team fell to the nineteenth position, having made a match less than its main rivals.Coach Thierry Henry has, however, won more preparation time for the game this Tuesday, although this may not be very useful since Monaco faces a large number of injury problems. The goalkeeper is Danijel Subasic; defenders Kevin N’Doram, Dijibril Sidibe and Almamy Toure; the midfielders Jean-Eudes Aholou, Nacer Chadli, Rony Lopes and Amada Traore; and the attackers Stevan Jovetic, Jordi Mboula and Pietro Pellegri.

To reach or not the first place of the key, which concedes only a theoretical advantage at the time of the draw of the round of 16, certainly is the least of the worries of Borussia Dortmund fans, who are euphoric after the victory, 2: 1, away from home in the Schalke classic for the Bundesliga on Saturday, 8 December.In addition to the moral aspect, the success led the team to 36 points (11 wins and three draws) in the lead of the German Championship. They are seven ahead of second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach and nine ahead of third-placed Bayern Munich, which is what really matters.That calm should make coach Lucien Favre use the meeting in Monaco to promote the cast relay by putting on the field athletes who are usually on the bench. The problems of concussion, which become intense throughout the season, this time are minimal. Only defender Dan-Axel Zagadou and striker Marius Wolf are in the infirmary.
Before Borussia’s 3-0 win in Dortmund in the first round of the Europa League 2018/2019 group stage, the teams had faced each other in the 2016/2017 tournament kills. At the time, the Monegascos took the best scoring 3 to 2 (out) and 3 to 1 (home).
When they drew at home with Brugge, Borussia Dortmund virtually gave up the top spot in the group. Now to get there needs a stumble from Atletico Madrid. So you should not try too hard. Which will most likely mean placing a reserve team in the confrontation with Monaco. In theory, this even opens space for more risky hunches. However, the weak performance of the Monegasque leads to believe that the prognosis in the victory of the German team is still the best option for the confrontation.
