AS Monaco is one of the most surprising teams in this season debut. They are currently leading in the Ligue 1, managed to win against PSG, and also their first Champions League game against Tottenham.
People have already started remembering that great season when Monaco played the final, but there still is a long way to go until then – with Bayer Leverkusen being their next opponents.
Monaco vs Bayer Leverkusen
The German team has been very impressive last time around but started this season very slow. They have yet to find their balance and form in the Bundesliga, only having one win.
Leverkusen has also played fewer games than their opponents – just 3 in the Bundesliga, 1 in the Champion League against CSKA and 1 in the preliminary round of the German cup – which is more like a friendly.
They have to be very careful and treat the competition seriously if they want to see spring in Europe – a defeat against Monaco can send them well on their way home.
On the other side, the French team is doing great at the moment. They are winning game after game, leading the domestic league and already gathering 3 European wins (2 against Villarreal and one against Tottenham).
A win against Leverkusen will make them favorites to win the group and will allow them to prepare for the double against CSKA Moscow more relaxed.
The only question that we can ask so far is how long can they maintain their great recent form – they aren’t used to competing seriously on many fronts.
Monaco vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips
A home victory is a definite possibility for this game. If you’re looking for easier bets, go for Monaco to score, or an over 2,5 goal bet.
Bayer Leverkusen is a team which both scores and concedes goals, but the French team’s better form should take them through and bring them the points.
