While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that when it comes to injuries both teams have no cause for concern. Almost all stars are fit and ready to fight. However, Tottenham is a bit worried about the form of their last season’s best striker Harry Kane. After having failed at Euro 2016 he was goalless in the first three Premier League games, but made a contribution to his team’s win over Stoke City. As for head to head statistics, these teams have played three times. Both sides have won 1 game each and drawn once. It should be mentioned that this time betting previews are quite ambiguous because both teams are well-prepared for the fight.
The bookmakers consider the host to be a favorite: Tottenham – 1,72, draw – 3,90, Monaco – 5,35. As both teams are in good form The Spurs will need to show their maximum to get a win. In any case Monaco is able to break through Londoners’ defense and to score, that is why you can bet on Both Teams to Score (1,89). Since the French team shows a decent football the bet Monaco’s handicap (+1) (1,66) also seems to get through. However, if you believe in Tottenham you can pick out The Spurs’ win. Besides there is a Total Goals Over 2,25 (1,78).
