Game info Monaco x Estrela Vermelha


After breaking a four-game streak without a win, Monaco is fighting this Thursday, November 3, for survival in the Europa League. It receives the Estrela Vermelha in a confrontation that is part of the plan of the sixth – last – round of the group stage of the 2022/2023 version of the Europa League. The meeting point will be the Louis II stadium in Monaco. The start is scheduled for 17:45 UTC.


How does the Europa League 2022/2023 work?


The competition's regulations, which have been downsized since the last edition thanks to the creation of the European Conference League, were maintained. With 32 participants, the Europa League has eight groups in its first stage. Each of them has four teams facing each other in a round-trip system. At the end of six rounds, the first two are still in contention for the title.


However, the champion of each bracket advances directly to the round of 16. Whoever is in second place goes to the round of 16 stages, in which they will face a 'relegated' club from the Champions League. The third place in each group will have the chance to continue in an international tournament in the second semester. It will be relegated to the European Conference League.



Monaco took advantage of the weakness of Anger, who has been stepping into the relegation zone of the French Championship, to end their negative streak on Sunday, October 30. After two defeats and two draws, they returned to celebrate a victory by scoring 2-0 in the match for the thirteenth round of the 2022/2023 edition of the French Championship.


Yet he encountered a little more difficulties than might have been expected. In the first half, Ben Yedder missed a penalty kick in the 41st minute. The path to victory was only opened by Embolo's goal, assisted by Vanderson, nine minutes into the finals. In the 25th minute, Golovin, this time with Volland as a waiter, scored the second.


This allowed the Monegasques to reach the level of 24 points (seven wins, three draws, and three defeats) and occupy the sixth position in the league table of the French Championship. First place outside the classification zone for international competitions. It has 11 points less than Paris Saint-Germain, the leader. In the Europa League, to not depend on any other result, they need the victory to guarantee the right to continue in the fight for the title.

Although it is at the bottom of the Europa League key H, Red Star still enters the field this Thursday with chances and classification. For that, winning Monaco is a mandatory result. It would guarantee the rise of one of the two positions on the leaderboard that it needs to reach the 16th finals stage. I would then have to hope for a stumbling block for Trabzonspor, who will host Ferencváros.


But if the Turks win, there is still hope. In this scenario, they would be equal in the score and confrontation, which is the first tiebreaker. Before the ball rolls for the final round, they are also in a situation of balance in goal difference (one), which is the second. Trabzonspor is in the third position for scoring the most goals (10 to 8). Thus, to overcome the Turkish club, the Serbian team would have to defeat Monaco by a goal more than the difference established by Trabzonspor against Ferencváros.


On Sunday, October 30, Red Star achieved its fifth straight victory. In a meeting for the seventeenth round of the Superliga, the elite division of the Serbian Championship in its 2022/2023 season, scored 2-0 at Kolubara, acting as a visitor. The result took him 44 points (14 wins and two draws). They retained their lead in the tournament and a seven-point advantage over the second Partizan.
