The first friendly for new force in French football this summer, will be held Sunday, July 13, 2013 starting at 18:30. Specifically AS Monaco will play a friendly match against the Germans in Dusseldorf, band that relegated at the end of last season in Bundesliga 2. Bundesliga odds are not as unbalanced as much as we expected, especially after transfers fabulous value hundreds of millions of euros that they have made the French this summer.
Dusseldorf, as I said, he said goodbye to the first stage of German football at least for one season after he relegated the previous season. The Germans had started the championship with force, but by the end they were lost and finished the championship on the penultimate position in the rankings.
During the summer Dusseldorf has played three friendly matches so far already, and this could be considered an advantage ahead of AS Monaco, the French being at the first training match. Dusseldorf ticked win 2-0 with Wattenscheid, a 1-1 draw with Grasshoppers, and a defeat 3-0 against more highly rated, FC Basel.
On the other hand, as I said, AS Monaco has invested the most in Europe this summer before transfers being of hundreds of millions. The most important acquisitions of new promovatei in Ligue 1 are Falcao, James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho, only they exceed EUR 3 100 million.
A certain disadvantage of Monaco in this game can be considered games lack standing. With reference to figures from the French Ligue 1 last season, we can say that they won the championship step, having the best attack (64 goals scored) and third in Ligue 2 defense (33 goals conceded).
