Spurs’ Champions League hopes on the line at Monaco

Tue, Nov 22, 6:13pm by Senior Writer

Tottenham fans have waited six years to get back into the Champions League, but desperately need a win in this week’s match in Monaco if they are to get back on track for qualification to the knockout stage.

Spurs may have finally broken a seven-match winless streak at home to West Ham last weekend, but it was hardly convincing and a loss in this match could see their hopes of progression ended, having gathered just four points from their first four games.

There is still a fitness doubt over Harry Kane, who scored twice late in that Premier League match against the Hammers, while Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele will also be assessed.

Despite that, and the fact that Monaco beat them when the two teams met in September, Spurs, currently fifth in the EPL, are $2.80 to win this, while Monaco are $2.62 and the draw is at $3.20.

Monaco only need a point to progress from Group E and are unbeaten in their past six in all competitions.

Leicester City’s Champions League form has been the polar opposite to their work in the EPL this campaign and a win in the home fixture against Club Brugge would assure them of progress to the final 16.

The Foxes are $1.44 to win this match and little wonder seeing they are unbeaten in the Champions League while their opponents are yet to gather a point. Brugges are $7.50 with the draw at $4.50.

In contrast, Leicester are in 12th in the League having lost to Watford on the weekend.

The battle for the top in Group H heats up with Sevilla hosting Juventus in a much anticipated clash.

Sevilla ($2.50) are on ten points, with Juventus ($3.10) on eight and a win from either side will seal their progress. Both teams are expected to go through with Lyon some four points adrift of second place.

The best of Thursday’s games (AEDT) sees Group A pair Arsenal and PSG meet at the Emirates for the right to go top of their group. That pair will go through regardless, but Arsenal ($2.20) will be keen to get back to winning ways after a couple of 1-1 draws with Tottenham and Manchester United in the league.

PSG, currently third in the French league, are $3.30 to win this match with the draw at $3.40.

A win by Manchester City ($1.80) at Borussia Monchengladbach ($4.20) would seal their spot in the final 16, regardless of the result between Celtic ($11) and Barcelona ($1.29).

Group B is by far the tightest of the lot, with Benfica one point clear of both Napoli and Besiktas. Besiktas ($2.80) host Benfica ($2.60) in Turkey in a crucial clash, while Napoli ($1.40) host Dynamo Kiev ($8).

Suggested Bet: Take Monaco to beat Spurs at $2.62
