Actually this will be the first match in an official competition between Manchester City and AS Monaco. Monaco are by no means pushovers. They played good matches at Stade Louis II and eliminated Tottenham from the group stages. They came out on top of Group E with 11 points and a record of 2 wins, 3 draws and only one defeat. Furthermore, they have lost only two matches in the last four months in any of the competitions they are participating (Ligue 1, French Cup, League Cup or Champions League)! Therefore, AS Monaco is not to be underestimated under any circumstances!
On the other hand, Manchester City managed to score 3 goals this season against Barcelona, and played against Celtic for a historic 3-3 draw. At this time they have a lot more positive results that defeats being second at the Premier League and finishing second in Group C of the Champions’ League group stage.
