Franck Passi: “The Strasbourg players are working hard in their matches, they have confidence with their latest wins. We want to capitalize on our draws against Nice and OM, and if we win, the players will be more confident in their heads.”
Thierry Laurey: “I saw a team from AS Monaco improve, who can play and keep the ball in the last games. They will be very careful and that’s the danger. Talented players, such as Golovin, Falcao, Rony Lopes or Fabregas, and on a play they can make a difference.”
