Soccer-Champions League now a scary prospect for Monaco

By Julien Pretot PARIS, Sept 15 (Reuters) – Monaco had a squad with every reason to be excited about playing in the Champions League a few months ago, but the prospect now looks rather scary as they prepare to host Bayer Leverkusen in their Group C opener on Tuesday. Since qualifying for Europe’s premier club competition, the Ligue 1 side have lost coach Claudio Ranieri, who guided them to second place last season, as well as World Cup revelation James Rodriguez and fellow Colombia forward Radamel Falcao. The team from the Mediterranean principality have been struggling to adjust, suffering three defeats in their five league outings so far, the last one on Friday when a 2-1 loss at Olympique Lyonnais left them one place off the bottom. Having Rodriguez and Falcao in his team might have helped, as it would against Leverkusen.

Soccer-Modest Malmo aim for third on Champions League debut

Malmo reached the final of the old European Cup in 1979 but the Swedish champions are aware that the days of such fairytales are well in the past and have more modest aims on their debut in the Champions League group stage. The club where Zlatan Ibrahimovic began his career visit Juventus on Tuesday (1845 GMT) and will be happy to finish third in their four-team group as they end Sweden’s 14-year absence from the competition. “It was fantastic to watch the draw and see ourselves in such exalted company,” said Age Hareide, their 60-year-old Norwegian coach, after his side also landed Atletico Madrid and Olympiakos in Group A. “It will be a real challenge for us. Third place in the group means that one arrives at the round of 32 in the Europa League.

Soccer-Shinji-mania grips Dortmund ahead of Arsenal clash

By Karolos Grohmann Sept 15 (Reuters) – Borussia Dortmund are hoping attacking midfielder Shinji Kagawa, who returned after two years at Manchester United, can help lift the German team past Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday despite a growing injury list. The 2013 Champions League runners-up host Arsenal on Tuesday after the two sides were drawn together in the group stage for the second season in a row. Kagawa, a crowd favourite who won back-to-back league titles in 2011 and 2012 before leaving for United, returned this season and scored in his first match back, a 3-1 win over Freiburg on Saturday. He still needs a bit more to catch up with us but he’ll get there.” Kagawa’s return could not have come at a better time with Dortmund missing midfielders Nuri Sahin, Marco Reus, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Ilkay Guendogan along with captain Mats Hummels for the Group D opener.

Van Gaal wants more from match-winner Di Maria

Manchester United's Dutch manager Louis van Gaal (C) pictured with the club's latest signings Colombian striker Radamel Falcao (L) and Dutch midfielder Daley Blind during their unveiling at Old Trafford in Manchester on September 11, 2014Manager Louis van Gaal urged Angel di Maria to give even more after he inspired Manchester United to a 4-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on his home debut. The Argentina international, United's record signing, upstaged debutant Radamel Falcao in Sunday's game at Old Trafford with a goal, an assist and a hand in the home side's two other goals. He came off in the 82nd minute after suffering cramp and although Van Gaal heralded his contribution, he said that he expected the £59.7 million ($98 million, 75 million euros) winger to get even better. "Di Maria is all right, but he has cramp.
