The French newspapers pay much attention to the AS Monaco FC - PSV tie. It is striking that quite a few journalists seem to be wary of the attacking power of Vennegoor of Hesselink.The sports newspaper L'équipe presents the headline VOH 'indispensable' and has an interview with Vennegoor of Hesselink, who scored the equalizer in the closing stages of last season’s game (1-1). He is also portrayed in one of the match previews. Monaco-Matin, a local paper, has an interview with AS Monaco captain Julien Rodriguez, who also feels that Vennegoor of Hesselink could be dangerous. The general feeling in the French newspapers is that the hosts are confident they will enjoy victory tonight. L'équipe has some nice statistics to report: 41% of all teams that lost the first leg 0-1 succeeded in eventually getting through to the next phase. This has happened 474 times since the 1980-1981 season.
