Like last year, AS Monaco will face FC Metz on the second matchday, 29th to 30th August, at the Stade Saint-Symphorien.
That will be followed by two more away games, before Monaco goes up against Paris Saint-Germain in November.

Meanwhile, AS Monaco have announced the departure of German international full-back Benjamin Henrichs, in a loan with €15m option to buy deal with Bundesliga club RB Leipzig.
Henrichs arrived in the Principality in August 2018, making 44 appearances over the course of two seasons but never really finding consistency in an elongated crisis period that the club experienced.
