Tottenham vs Monaco
UEFA Champions League – Group E
Date: Wednesday, 14th September, 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Tottenham will return to Champions League on Wednesday as they play Monaco at Wembley Stadium London.
Tottenham haven’t played in Europe’s best competition for 5 years, they reached the quarterfinals in 2010/2011 season. Now they are drawn in group E alongside Bayer Leverkusen, Monaco and CSKA Moscow. Spurs have been good so far this season, they are unbeaten since the beginning of the season with 2 draws and 2 wins. They tore Stoke City apart on Saturday, with a 0-4 away win. They are hopeful of getting to the knockout stages again in this season’s Champions League competition.
Monaco defeated Fenerbahce and Villarreal in the 3rd qualifying round and playoff round respectively to get to this stage. They are currently top of the Ligue 1 table with 10 points, also they have been unbeaten since the beginning of this season. They did well to grab another win on Saturday, they defeated 0-4 Lille on the road. They will be hoping to carry their good form into the Champions League as they travel to London.
The other teams in Group E of the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League are Bayer Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow.

Tottenham vs Monaco: Prediction
Both teams have made a great start to the new season, they have kept a good record so far. Have won 3 of their 4 league games and drawn 1, while Spurs have won 2 and drawn 2 of their league games. Both teams also have a good scoring record this season which will make this fixture a tough one.
Tottenham are a great team with good quality, but Monaco’s recent form shows how hard the game will be for Spurs. The game will likely end in draw, but considering the defense of both teams, I count on Tottenham to win the game.
