Radamel Falcao is hopeful of being fit for Mona co’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Manchester City on Wednesday.

The Colombian came off the bench for the last 25 minutes for the Ligue 1 leaders’ 2-1 win over Bordeaux on Saturday and immediately inspired the opening goal for Kylian Mbappe.

Coach Leonardo Jardim revealed Falcao suffered a hip injury in the final moments of the match which could rule him out as Monaco seek to reverse a 5-3 deficit against Pep Guardiola’s men.

But Falcao returned to training in a limited capacity on Monday and gave an encouraging update on his fitness afterwards.

“I feel good,” he said. “I hope I will play.”

Falcao scored twice but also missed a penalty as City came out on top in a thrilling first leg three weeks ago.
