The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well.
Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group.
Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016
FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20
Monaco is one of the nice surprises of this season. They’re doing great both in the domestic league and in Europe, leading the CL group with 11 points and without losing a single game.
They are undefeated in all competitions since mid-October and are also a formidable team when playing away from home.
Of course, they won’t field their best eleven since they have a hard game in Ligue 1 during the weekend, but their team is great even with 5-6 changes to the first eleven.
On the other hand, Leverkusen has qualified from the group in an almost incredible manner, especially due to the very bad quality of their game.
They have won a single game in their last five and won a single game in the CL group – a 1-0 victory away from home against Tottenham, coupled with 4 other draws.
Since their form in the Bundesliga is far from perfect, and they really need their best players available on Saturday, it’s hard to think they’ll field a good team against Monaco.

From a betting perspective, we have a few ideas for this game. We’re fairly sure that Monaco will score, at that they won’t lose the game.
X2 is a great idea, as well as over 0,5 goals for Monaco – and for the bold of you, you can even go for a solo away win, since Monaco will field lots of players who want to prove themselves.
