Match Preview: AS Monaco v Brentford B

Young Bees set for tough test on Wednesday

22 February 2022

Brentford B return to action on Wednesday morning when they take on AS Monaco away from home in a behind closed doors fixture with kick-off at 11am local time.

The young Bees will once again be in action abroad having recently been involved in the Atlantic Cup in Portugal where they took on Breiðablik, Brøndby IF and Halmstads BK. The tournament gave the side the opportunity to take on senior opposition and they’ll once again have a tough test ahead of them when they take on the Ligue 1 side.

About AS Monaco

Monaco currently occupy sixth place in Ligue 1 after 25 matches this season. So far they have won 10 matches, drawn eight and lost seven which puts them on 38 points.

Monaco earned a point through a Marcelo own goal on 67 minutes.

Philippe Clement is in charge of Monaco and he took the role in January this year after leaving Club Brugge. Clement’s playing career saw him turn out for teams such as Genk, Coventry City and Club Brugge, who he took charge of permanently in 2019.
