DOR vs MON Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
AS Monaco will be playing for a pride when they host German giants Borussia Dortmund in the final UEFA Champions League group stage match at Stade Louis II, in Monaco, tomorrow on Tuesday night (IST).
Thiery Henry received praise from all corners of football fraternity when Belgium made to the semifinals of the FIFA World Cup in the summer. Some even went to distance to label him as the real brain behind the tactics of manager Roberto Martinez.
So when the former Arsenal superstar took over the reins at AS Monaco many predicted a sudden change in the fortunes of 2016-17 Ligue 1 Champions who were flirting with the relegation from the very first day of the campaign.
But the reality something different, The real heat of the matter is when you are at the forefront, taking all the decision, knowing you are the only one who will burn if things get nasty.
Henry may still be new at Stade Louis II but Monaco are still in the relegation zone, at 19th and three points away from the safety.
The team has won just two games under his guidance. The long list of injury hasn’t helped his cause either, and with nothing riding on this match, you can expect some wholesale changes to the playing 11, considering Monaco will be making a tough trip to Lyon.
Borussia Dortmund’s last home game in the Champions League could come back to haunt them if they get a formidable opponent in the last-16. Though there is no easy fixture in the Champions League, the opponent may be more benign if they finish first in the group.
However, the 0-0 draw against Club Brugge has left the Bundesliga giants in a precarious situation as Atletico Madrid won their game against Monaco and moved to the top of the table. Also, if Madrid beat Brugge in their last fixture, even a win for Dortmund would only fetch them a 2nd place finish in the group.
In the domestic campaign, the Westfalenstadion based side is looking in the groove to end Bayern Munich’s dominance. Lucien Favre’s men remained nine points away from Munchen after beating FC Schalke 1-2 in the Revierderby at the weekend.

DOR vs MON Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
According to reports, Marco Reus, Shinji Kagawa and Piszczek all have bee given a day off and won’t be playing in this match – meaning Gotze will start or may feature from the bench while Falcao is our captain.
Dahoud and Pulisic will start, while Raphael Guerrero is expected to play as well. While both Bennasser, Henrichs, Tielemans are Monaco’s best bet in the midfield.
Hakimi could start at the right-back considering Piszczek isn’t in the squad.
Well, both Akanji and Diallo starred against Schalke and we expect Favre to continue with that partnership at the back.
There are not many changes but we have Maximilian Philipp in the attack.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
AS Monaco have no confidence and are lacking in team strength considering injuries to key players.
We are backing an away win for Borussia Dortmund.
