The first major goal for the Red & Whites is the friendly match against Servette Genève, recent winner of the Swiss cup, scheduled for July 6. Before that, the players who are available will resume training at the Performance Centre as of Wednesday afternoon.

Under the leadership of Adi Hütter, AS Monaco is planning a series of friendly matches to fine tune the players’ preparation. In addition to the match against Servette Genève, the club will face Cercle Bruges on 13 July at the Performance Centre. The Red and Whites will then head to the Netherlands for a final warm-up match against Feyenoord on 31 July.

A training camp is also planned in the Austrian coach’s homeland from 15 to 21 July. The trip to Windischgarsten will conclude with a match against Sturm Graz on 20 July. As a reminder, AS Monaco faced the 2023-24 Austrian champions in the group stage of the Europa League in 2021, emerging unbeaten with a win (1-0) and a draw (1-1).
