ATL vs MON Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Atletico Madrid will be playing host to Monaco for the first time in Europe at Wanda Metropolitano, in Madrid tomorrow on Wednesday night as the Champions League group stage heads to its culmination.
Los Rojiblancos are 2nd in their Champions League Group A, on 9 points from the first four games and behind Borussia Dortmund on head-to-head record.
Atletico managed to beat Lucien Favre’s team in the reverse fixture but the 4-0 chastening defeat against Dortmund on the matchday three could prove to be vital for the top two teams in this group.
Despite winning that match and even if Atletico win their next two games, Diego Simeone’s team may still finish 2nd in the group. Eventually, the qualification to the knockout rounds is the ultimate target, but topping the group has its own advantages.
Talking about their form, Madrid are unbeaten since losing in Germany, winning four times in that period. They drew their last game in La Liga where they conceded a 90th-minute goal against Barcelona and missed a glorious to go top of the table. However, only two points separate them and Sevilla at the top.
Monaco finally ended their barren run under their new manager Thiery Henry when they beat Caen 0-1 on the road in Ligue 1 at the weekend. But the damage has already been done as far as meeting the minimum target is concerned for Monaco.
Les Monégasques surprised the whole world when they usurped PSG from the top of French football, winning the Ligue 1 title in 2016/17. Also, that was the season when they made deep into the Champions League. However, things have certainly changed on the shores of Monaco as they sold too many key players to the big European teams. The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Fabinho, Bernardo Silva, Thomas Lemar, and Bakayoko, who were the backbone of the team in that title-winning season have all departed while the team failed to re-invest the money on right talent.
Also, Leonardo Jardim has been sacked after the team won just once in the first nine league games.
At this moment, Monaco are in the relegation zone, two points away from the safety. While the Champions League hopes have died already as they can’t qualify to the knockout rounds. However, a Europa League passage can be achieved provided they collect at least four points from their final; two games and hope Club Brugge lose both.

ATL vs MON Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Diego Costa is a huge doubt and we have left him out of the squad. Griezmann will be leading our attack, with Lemar in the midfield playing as a deputy.
Niguez and Correa are the other two midfielders from Atletico.
We certainly think an easy Atletico Madrid win in this game and that’s we have more home players.
Griezmann and Falcao remains and are the captain and vice-captain respectively.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Atletico Madrid’s come-from-behind 1-2 win over Monaco remain the first-ever meeting between these two countries till date. Monaco won their last match and should be more confident in this match than they have ever been this season.
However, Atletico are playing at a totally different level and we expect an easy win for the hosts in this match.
