Champions League Fixture: Tottenham vs AS Monaco

Tottenham has finally gotten back to the Champions League and will play their first match in Europe’s top competition since 2011 on Wednesday as they take on a team from Monaco they met in Europa League action just last year.

SHARK BITES
  • Spurs are coming off a 4-0 trouncing of Stoke City in Premier League action.
  • Monaco sits 1st in Ligue 1 action with 3 wins and a draw.
  • Spurs are unbeaten in their only 2 meetings with Monaco.

The last and only other time Spurs were in the Champions League they made it to the quarterfinals and had the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric in their starting XI. Although they do not have the same star power they did in 2010-11, Spurs are arguably a much deeper club. The signing of players like Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen and Moussa Sissoko has given Tottenham the ability to have fresh, skilled legs in both domestic and European competition and they should be able to come out on top of their fairly competitive group.

The best finish by Les Rouges et Blancs, as AS Monaco is known by its supporters, in the Champions League was when they finished runners-up to Porto in 2004. Their last showing in the Champions League saw Monaco defeated by Juventus in the quarterfinals in 2014-15.

Tottenham got the better of this Ligue 1 team in Group J play in Europa competition last season and has the class and the form to send Monaco out of England with its tail between its legs. Spurs come into this one as -133 favorites on Bet365 with the club from Monaco coming back at +425 in moneyline markets.

Spurs have been a solid defensive club in English competition so far but have yet to face a squad with a goal-scoring record like Monaco, which has 10 goals in its four Ligue 1 matches. This makes the BTTS (both teams to score) bet very appealing at the -110 line it’s being offered at.
