Monaco vs Bruges Betting Tips
With a berth in the Europa League in play, Monaco and Brugge will face each other on Tuesday 6 November at the Louis II stadium in Monaco. The clash is part of the fourth round of group A of the European Champions League 2018/2019 edition, the first of the second round. The kickoff is scheduled for 15:55.
Tied for third place with a point-win, the teams still have hopes of reaching one of the two places that the group have booked in the UCL (Uefa Champions League) round of 16. This possibility, however, is minimal.
Thus, in practice, the Monaco and Belgian fight is even in third place, which will allow them to continue in the ‘continental second division’ in the second half of the season, since Borussia Dortmund, who has nine points, and Atletico Madrid , with six, who will face each other from 6:00 p.m., are expected to stay in the standings for the last 16.
The continental tournament, however, is at present the least of Monaco’s concerns, which has already changed coaching this season. The Portuguese Leonardo Jardim was dismissed. Frenchman Thierry Henry, who has stepped in his place, has not achieved better results. On Saturday, November 3, for the twelfth round of the French Championship as visitors, the Monegasques were beaten 1-0 by Reims.With that, they reached the mark of 14 matches (five draws and nine defeats) – involving all competitions – to no avail. The most recent victory came on 11 August. It was the 3 to 1, like visitor marked on the Nantes, by the Ligue 1, still with the direction of Garden.
Having a commitment, also at home, against the powerful Paris Saint-Germain scheduled for Sunday, November 11, Henry has in the confrontation of this Tuesday an opportunity to make adjustments in the team.
However, your options are quite limited. He can hardly count on goalkeeper Daniel Subasic; with defenders Kevin N’Doran and Djibril Sidibe; with Jean-Eudes Aholou and Rony Lopes stockings; and with strikers Willem Geubbels, Stevan Jovetic and Pietro Pellegri, who are in the care of the medical department.
A boost for the confrontation is veteran Italian defender Andrea Raggi. The 34-year-old defender has not been able to play in the matches of the French Championship because of suspension, but may play in duels in the European Champions League.
When the UCL (Uefa Champions League) draw was held in its 2018/2019 season, fourth place seemed to be Brugge’s sealed fate in a key with teams so superior technically and so more economically powerful. In this way, reaching the day of number four with the possibility of reaching a place in the Europa League can be considered a victory.
The team also had a commitment to the local championship on Saturday, November 3. Acting out of their dominions was in the tie, by 1 to 1, with Genk. He extended to five his series of matches without defeat. It is not, however, an impressive unbeaten sequence. There were four equalities and only one victory.
With 31 points (nine wins, four draws and one defeat), he takes second place in the league table of the Jupiler League. It’s three points behind Genk, the leader. When only the results are considered as visitors, it is the fourth best in the tournament. He accumulated 12 points (three wins, three draws and one loss) in that situation.
Coach Ivan Leko has two incumbents in the ward and depends on the positioning of the medical department to know if he can count on them in the game on Tuesday. In the case of striker Jelle Vossen, the scorer of four goals in six matches in the Belgian Championship, the situation is difficult. A knee injury should still cause you to spend more time off the lawn.
However, there is still hope to have striker Emmanuel Dennis as well. The Nigerian, who scored twice in eight matches in the Jupiler League, started the match against Monaco in Belgium but suffered a muscle injury that took him out of the next three games. Must be re-evaluated.

The Monaco situation does not allow the team the luxury of focusing efforts on international tournaments. It is necessary to put order in the house in order to avoid relegation in Ligue 1. Brugge, on the other hand, with better defined situation in the Belgian Championship, can seek a classification until then unexpected for the Europa League. The unusual scenario makes the prognosis in the visitors’ victory a good option for the confrontation on Tuesday.
