At one point last season, Monaco securing a Champions League spot was unthinkable, however, the French side did well towards the end of the campaign to grab the third spot. Now Philippe Clement’s side have a tough challenge on their hands to secure their passage into the group stage of Europe’s premier club competition. Meanwhile, PSV finished second last season in the Dutch league to Erik ten Hag’s Ajax. They started their current campaign with a stunning 5-3 win over Ajax in the Johan Cruijff Schaal clash. It was the first official match for Ruud van Nistelrooy as PSV manager.
The arrival of Takumi Minamino and Breel Embolo will be a boost for Monaco. However, their participation in the upcoming match is not fully clear. Even though Aleksandr Golovin and Kevin Volland will miss their league opener due to suspension, both will be available for the Champions League qualifier. Question marks, however, linger over the participation of Benoit Badiashile. Meanwhile, PSV could miss Noni Madueke for a good while if reports are to be believed. Besides, Carlos Vinicius, Olivier Boscagli and Mauro Junior might also join him on the sidelines for this clash.
