Monaco did not start the French League 1 in the best way, taking 1 point from two matches, and in the 3rd round they will face Lance for the first victory. The previous season was successful for Monaco, after finishing in 3rd place, right after Lille and PSG. Despite the not very successful old man, it is still the beginning of the championship and the team has enough matches to enter the top teams in League 1 again, and now the main goal is to qualify in the groups of the Champions League.
Shakhtar has already played 4 matches in the Ukrainian championship, and after 3 wins and one loss to Alexandria, ranks third in the Ukrainian Premier League, with the same number of points as Dynamo Kyiv and 3 points behind interim leader Desna Chernyshev. Shakhtar definitely has a lot of experience in Euro tournaments. He has often qualified for Champions League groups in recent years and it will hardly be easy for the French to eliminate him. Statistics show that in 2015 the Ukrainians successfully coped with the French team, after 3-0 in Donetsk.
