13 years ago an unfancied AS Monaco side packed with stars of the future stormed the Champions League to make the semi-final stage, and history is repeating itself at the Stade Louis II as Leonardo Jardim’s wonderfully exciting side prepare to take on Juventus in the last 4 of Europe’s premier club competition tonight.
They could hardly have wished for tougher opponents, however, with Juve having their eyes firmly set on continental glory after a number of close calls in recent years.
With the hosts having already scored a frankly ridiculous 138 goals this season it’s almost guaranteed to be a hugely exciting game, but who will come out on top?
|ATTACKING FORM AVERAGES|
|DEFENSIVE FORM AVERAGES|
Our Ultimate Form Guide (above) suggests it’s set to be an incredibly tight affair, with each side topping their opponent in 6 out of 15 key statistical areas over their last 10 respective outings.
In attack, this free-flowing Monaco side inevitably has the edge. They have seen an incredibly high 28% of their shots find the back of the net of late, and this has lead them to 10 consecutive wins.
Juventus, however, have an utterly formidable defense that is currently conceding an average of just 0.4 goals per game. If there were ever a unit that could stop Monaco, it’s the Italians’.
It really does look set up to be an absolute classic, and one which either team has an excellent chance of winning. A bet on either side would not be a wasted one.
