Red Star Belgrade vs Monaco Tips and Prediction
Red Star will appear in either the Champions League or Europa League group stage for the sixth consecutive season after failing to advance past the first round of any European competition from 2008 to 2016.
Having impressively won Group L last year before losing on aggregate to eventual champions Rangers in the round of 16, they will now attempt to win the Europa League again after losing on aggregate to Maccabi Haifa.
Dejan Stankovic, a former Inter Milan midfielder, has been replaced as manager by Milos Milojevic after the 39-year-early old’s success stalled in recent weeks due to the aforementioned Champions League elimination and two straight draws in the Serbian SuperLiga, which allowed Novi Pazar to pass them at the top of the standings.
Red Star will have a chance to get back on track against Monaco on Thursday, as their performance in Europe will likely depend heavily on how well they do at home this season.
Meanwhile, Monaco, who also won their Europa League group last year before losing to Braga on aggregate in the round of 16, has followed a similar path to Red Star on the European arena during the previous year.
They were eliminated from the Champions League qualifying rounds earlier this season as well, with PSV Eindhoven advancing at their expense after Luuk De Jong’s extra-time goal leveled the match with just one minute left in regulation.
Philippe Clement will be confident that he can lead Monaco to another European championship, which would earn them a bye in the first knockout round in accordance with the competition’s new rules. Monaco was given a fairly favorable draw in Group H alongside Red Star, Trabzonspor, and Ferencvaros.
However, very few clubs find it simple to play their typical brand of football in Belgrade’s boisterous atmosphere. If Monaco wants to win the Riviera derby, they may need to display the same kind of resolve that helped them upset Nice on the road on Sunday.
Given that both of these teams won their respective groups in this competition last season, they are likely to treat each other with a lot of respect.
Therefore, should the game’s current situation indicate that, we wouldn’t be astonished if both agreed to split the spoils.
