More than a thousand AS Monaco supporters will be in Manchester on Tuesday night to support their club in the knockout round of the Champions League against Manchester City.

Not all the fans will be from the Riviera, with many planning to travel from the north of France. A group of 50 devoted supporters from Monaco will be making the trip. Josep “Pep” Guardiola, the City trainer has no illusions that Monaco will be a tough team to beat. He told the sports press on Monday that Monaco are a complete and balanced team.

Mr Guardiola admitted in the interview that critics are waiting to “kill” him and Manchester City if they fail to get past Monaco in the Champions League last 16.

AS Monaco has won plaudits from other teams for inexpensively building up the side by nurturing young players, after splashing out millions of euros in a major spending spree three seasons ago.

The Principality’s footballers have a good record playing in England, beating the Spurs in September. Kick-off is at 7:45 pm, UK time.
