AS Monaco returned to the Europa League after participating in the Champions League Play-Off. On November 26, 2015 the Red and Whites still control their own destiny before facing Anderlecht.

Second in their group before the match, the Monegasques fail to qualify for the round of 32. This premature elimination allows AS Monaco to focus everything on the league and earn a Champions League spot at the end of the season.
