Monaco’s last appearance in the Champions League was back in the 2018/19 season but they barely made any headways then as they were in a tough group that had the likes of Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. They are looking to get back into the thick of things again this time and are in a great position to do so after picking up the 2-0 win in the first leg in Prague.
After finishing third in Ligue 1 last season, they began the 2021/22 campaign with a less than impressive 1-1 draw against Nantes at their Stade Louis II stadium. Nico Kovac’s side dominated the encounter from start to finish but couldn’t quite draw the dagger.
Perhaps he may have had an eye on this return leg going by lineups in the game. The big priority at this point in time is obviously dining at the high table with the crème de la crème of Europe.
Sparta have had a longer path to get to this stage. After finishing third in Czech’s top flight, they had to square it off with Rapid Vienna in the second qualifying round which they won 3-2 on aggregate despite losing the first leg in Vienna.
They have been quite impressive in the domestic competition this season. Last weekend’s 2-0 win over Karvina maintained their 100% to the season with 3 wins from 3 matches, taking them to the top of the league.
This is certainly their biggest task of this young season. Pavel Vrba’s side will need to put a performance for the ages if they are to overturn this two-goal deficit against Monaco.
