A look at Tottenham’s betting odds
Mauricio Pochettino’s men finally look to be firing on all cylinders, shooting up the table following a 4-0 win at Stoke after an unbeaten yet also unspectacular start to the campaign.
This will be tough, even though the omens are in Spurs’ favour – only four visiting French sides have visited the Lilywhites in competitive football history and they were all sent packing, the most recent Monaco in the Europa League last December.
Harry Kane’s first-scorer odds will shrink after last term’s Premier League top marksman bagged his first of the campaign in the Potteries, but the England number nine might need a while longer to get back in full flow.
Erik Lamela sat out most of the win over Stoke and bagged a hat-trick against Leonardo Jardim’s men at home last term, so the Argentine is one to keep an eye on in the scorer betting.
A look at Monaco’s betting odds
The principality outfit finally look on the verge of challenging Paris Saint-Germain’s dominance for the Ligue 1 title this year, with Jardim and co currently perched at the top of the pile having beaten the champions 3-1 last time out at home.
Spurs’ record against French sides suggests they’re up against here, especially considering Pochettino’s charges saw Monaco off so easily nine months ago, but they did score an impressive 3-1 victory at Arsenal the last they visited London in this competition the season before.
