“Today he started the training session with the squad. He’s been better. If he trains well tomorrow it will be good for the game (on Tuesday),” Jardim told a news conference.

Falcao has yet to play in 2018.

Monaco are second in Ligue 1 on 42 points from 20 games after a 0-0 draw at Montpellier on Saturday.
