Thanks to its victory against Real Sociedad (2-1), this Thursday evening, on the fifth day of the group stages of the Europa League, AS Monaco is guaranteed to finish in first place in group B and valid thus his ticket for the round of 16. A success, acquired at the expense of a catchy Spanish formation and second in Liga, which could, moreover, allow the Monegasques to free themselves in Ligue 1 (note: ASM is eighth in the French championship). In any case, this is the hopes of Djibril Sidibé, questioned at the end of the meeting.
“It was a tough group, Champions League level, we were keen to qualify, we did it”, first of all welcomed the defender Djibril Sidibe at the microphone of Canal + before adding: “We knew that we would have weak times against this big Real team, but we remained united. We know it was a different context but we have to rely on this kind of service in L1. It’s up to us to question ourselves to start a series, because the championship remains the most important. ” Next meeting ? Next Sunday when the ASM will host Strasbourg on behalf of the 15th day of Ligue 1.
