Tottenham and Monaco are the other two teams featuring in Group E, but if we look at the group as a whole, we really can’t say which team was seeded first and which was seeded last. The most balanced group in this year’s competition features another great game in day 1 – between a team which rarely breaks top 4 in the Premier League and a French team which either relegates or surprises everyone with their great European performances.
Tottenham vs Monaco
The Spurs challenged for the title for the better part of last season and maintained most of their squad. They even brought in two great players – Wanyama and Janssen, which will surely be needed when the team plays games every three days across four competitions.
Their objective is playing in the knock-out rounds for the first time in recent history, but they will have to produce some strong performances to qualify – especially on home ground.
On the other hand, Monaco booked their tickets for the competition after eliminating Villareal in the playoffs rather surprising. They won both legs and produced other great results on the start of this season, like winning against PSG in a very convincing fashion.
The French team is currently first in their domestic league and want to prolong their great form for as much as possible. Although their squad lacks depth, they might be able to maintain this great style of play for another month or two, if they also stay injury-free.

That being said, we’re looking at a game between an in-form French team and a very inconsistent British one – Spurs alternated great games with not-so-great games so far.
White Hart Lane is still their fortress, so we don’t believe Tottenham will lose this game – 1X or even Tottenham +1,5 are things to look for.
Also, both teams to score is another smart bet – we think Monaco will score at least once and Tottenham won’t lose, so this bet is another clear one. Good luck!
