Here’s why Monaco can win the Champions League

Can Monaco win The Champions League?

The answer to that question is definitely YES. Monaco have the best team they’ve had in years. Kylian Mbappé is on fire, Falcao has returned to the kind of form that had Monaco sign him in the first place, and having amazing overall teamwork.

Monaco started their Champions League campaign this season right as they topped one of the more competitive groups in the competition, which contained the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, CSKA Moscow, and Bayer Leverkusen.

Monaco really started moving towards the spotlight after becoming the team that has scored the most goals in Europe this season. (They still are as of today). They also participated in one of the most thrilling Champions League Round of 16 ties ever seen. After falling 5-3 to Manchester City away, Monaco were able to progress winning 3-1 at home due to City’s sloppy defending. Their next obstacle was Borussia Dortmund. The day of the match though, the Dortmund team bus was bombed and one of Dortmund’s starting defenders Marc Bartra was injured. The match was postponed by 21 HOURS, and even though that was definitely not enough time for Dortmund to get over what happened but nevertheless they played, and Monaco won 3-2. In the home leg, Dortmund were battered and overwhelmed by Monaco losing 3-1.

Now Monaco have to go up against the Old Lady, Juventus, in the semifinals and even though Juve knocked out Barcelona, this is probably the easiest draw Monaco could’ve asked for. Some people may be skeptical as Monaco has definitely had their fair share of luck during these knockout stages, but I believe Monaco can go all the way.

Kylian Mbappé currently has 22 goals this season, as an 18 year old, and as a winger. That is pretty impressive re youngster can definitely help Monaco to the glory, especially with Falcao and his 24 goals from Striker this year, and Valére Germain to come on as a sub and score goals. Bakayoko is a great defensive midfielder and can pop up with the odd goal or 2. Kamil Glik even has 7 goals from Center Back. Not only is Glik also a great defender, but he also looks terrifying, definitely player I would not want to come up against (cough cough Dybala couch cough) if Monaco win The Champions League, just remember, You heard it here first.
