Borussia Dortmund face Monaco at Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Borussia Dortmund and Monaco have seen their seasons go in two opposite directions. After an incredible week, Dortmund passed Bayern Munich to sit first in the Bundesliga. Monaco have not won a Ligue 1 game since the opening weekend of the season and are currently in the relegation zone. While in the Champions League, Dortmund defeated Club Brugge in their opening game, while Monaco lost to Atletico Madrid.
Dortmund hammered Nuremberg 7-0 on Wednesday before mounting an incredible comeback on Saturday, coming back from a two-goal deficit to beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-2. Marco Reus has caught fire for Dortmund, scoring three goals this week and has four goals and four assists this season. The addition of Paco Alcacer at the deadline has been a brilliant move as the Spanish striker scored twice against Leverkusen and has three goals in his first two games. The two players will lead the attack on Wednesday with Reus playing behind Alcacer.
Manager Lucien Favre will have to make a decision in his starting XI after the emergence of Jacob Bruun Larsen. The Danish winger has scored two goals in his first three games this season. Favre will have to choose between Bruun Larsen, Christian Pulisic and Jadon Sancho when selecting his starting XI.
Monaco have struggled to defend in Ligue 1, keeping only one clean sheet in their first eight games. In addition to their defensive woes, Monaco have struggled to fill the back of the net, scoring only eight goals but failing to score in their last two games. If Monaco are going to score against Dortmund, it will likely be Falcao or Youri Tielemans who finds the back of the net. The two players have combined for five of Monaco’s eight goals.

Dortmund and Monaco have only played two games against each other. Monaco won both legs of the 2016-17 Champions League quarterfinal. However, that meeting was overshadowed by the bombing of the Dortmund team bus prior to the first leg.
