Monaco v Borussia Dortmund UEFA Champions League LIVEscore

Monaco v Borussia Dortmund UEFA Champions League LIVEscore

Recent history has shown that Monaco has a resolute but not impenetrable defense, especially to a team that likes to attack from various angles like Dortmund does.

The American is still only 18-years-old, but is a starter for Thomas Tuchel's Bundesliga outfit already.

It's now 22 in all competitions for the season for the French striker, which is all the more astonishing considering he didn't score his first until late October. "If you don't play in the Champions League, you play once a week".

The burly Greece centre-back made 17 tackles, launched a string of counter-attacks and won 76 per cent of his challenges on Saturday. Aubameyang has been clocked covering 30 metres in 3.7 seconds and he rarely goes twice without scoring in a tie.

Les Rouges et Blancs manager Leonardo Jardim added that he is expecting a friendly atmosphere inside Stade Louis II on Wednesday. At domestic level, Monaco beat Dijon 2-1 in Ligue 1.

The game took place amid heightened security after a review of the policing operation by authorities in Germany and Spain at all three Champions League games on Wednesday.

They like eye-catching, top-of-the-range products in Monaco so the locals will presumably appreciate the sight of Marco Reus rolling into town.

Dortmund fans' heartwarming response to the edgy situation captured the imagination of the football world, with many locals inviting stranded away Monaco fans into their homes to stay the night.

He doubled the advantage by tapping home the rebound after Luis Suarez's shot was saved, before Inigo Martinez pulled one back. As the hour mark approached, Jose found himself in space on the edge of the penalty area, but could not get his shot away.

And although Monaco have one of the most exciting attacks in Europe, Dortmund's is equally strong. That could mean the kind of space in behind that Reus and teenage wing wizard Dembele thrive on.

Both are still fighting for a major honor as a coach, but they have each had to prove themselves in their profession without having been players of any note.

The Spanish defender posted "proud to be part of this family!"

Monaco's high speed attack will undoubtedly cause trouble to Dortmund with the likes Kylian Mbappe, Radamel Falcao and Bernardo Silva looking so slick on the attack and counter.

Three explosions went off near the bus carrying Dortmund's team to the stadium on Tuesday just after it left a hotel, blowing in a window at the back and shards of glass struck Bartra.
