AS Monaco defender, Elderson Echiejile, is confident of his side advancing to the play-offs of the UEFA Champions League after being drawn against Young Boys of Switzerland.
Echiejile who made two assists in Monaco’s 3-1 win against PSV Eindhoven on Friday admitted that playing against the Swiss side in Zurich, in the first leg, could sway the tie in their favour.
“They are a good side, but we have a good chance,” Echiejile told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“The first leg is away and it’s tricky, but that could favour us in a way,” He added.
Monaco, who reached the quarter-finals last term, are one of three sides in the draw to have made the 2014/15 knockouts along with Shakhtar and Basel.
