Axel Disasi: "An exciting match with high stakes"
Take control of thier destiny. The players from the Principality club know what they have to do when they host Red Star Belgrade this Thursday at the Stade Louis-II (6:45 p.m.). Axel Disasi and his teammates want a victory to reach the knockout stages of the Europa League and thus continue their journey in the competition, even against a big club from the Big 5. This is what the Monegasque defender explained in press conference.
His feelings before the match
There is no stronger pressure than before this game. Despite everything, it is an exciting match with high stakes. We are competitors and it is above all a pleasure to play this kind of match. But in my opinion we should not put unnecessary pressure on ourselves and simply play our football.
We don’t think about the different scenarios that may come our way. We want to stay focused on ourselves, our game and our principles. And I think if we can do that, we’ll have a great night.
A win in the reverse fixture
I would say that every game has its own story. Despite everything, getting three points from the first match was a good performance and it put us on the right track. Not every team can say the same because it’s hard to win in Belgrade. But we must disregard this first match, because it will be a completely different match.
100 matches in Rouge et Blanc
It is a point of pride to reach this milestone of 100 games with AS Monaco. When I signed here, it was to progress in my career, to grow, and to become a regular on the pitch. So I’m very happy to have reached this number. I haven’t had a lot of injuries so far, which has allowed me to rack up so many appearances pretty quickly. I hope this will still be the case in the future.
💯 matches for Axel Disasi with the Diagonale!

A feeling of desire
It will take a bit of everything to get a result against Belgrade. It will take desire, but also peace of mind to gauge the situation, and above all good thinking tactically. But it’s true that desire is a feeling that characterizes me, that represents me well. Whether on defensive or offensive actions (3 goals and 4 assists this season). If it can give even more energy to my teammates, so much the better. In any case, we are all focused on the same objective.
