BRANDON WIGGINS - Friday, November 22, 2013
Alejandro Bedoya and FC Nantes host AS Monaco in one of their biggest matches of the season this Sunday.
Bedoya is coming off of two straight starts for the U.S. Men's National Team in its recent set of international friendlies.
His recent appearances in the National Team rotation have a lot to do with Bedoya's success at Nantes, where he transferred to over the summer. He has become a main part of the club's midfield rotation and generally been in good form in his appearances for the team.
Nantes as a whole is coming off of a terrific 3-0 win over Bordeaux in their most recent Ligue 1 match.
Now, he and fourth-place Nantes face a Monaco squad that has struggled recently, losing three straight matches. However, Bedoya and Nantes must be careful not to underestimate Monaco, who currently sits directly ahead of Nantes in third-place.
Bedoya personally must be careful in this match as he already has a yellow card in Ligue 1 play, along with a number of Nantes players that includes the club's leading scorer Filip Djordjevic.
