Monaco can book their place in the first knockout round of the Champions League if they beat Tottenham on Tuesday, while the Spurs need to at least avoid defeat if they want to keep any chances of pulling through. Monaco have won the reverse fixture 2-1 at White Hart Lane in September, which was their first ever competitive win over Tottenham. Last season the two teams have met in the Europa League group stage, Tottenham won 4-1 at home while drawing 1-1 away.
Monaco are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competition, with consecutive wins in their last three games. Last weekend they won 3-0 at Lorient and sit second in the Ligue 1 table, just three points behind surprising leaders Nice. In the Champions League, Monaco are leading the table in Group E with 8 points collected in four games, two clear of second-placed Leverkusen and four above Tottenham. Head coach Leonardo Jardim has all his first-team players fit and ready to go, but Joao Moutinho might have to settle for a place on the bench after having recovered from injury.
Tottenham finally managed to end their seven-game winless streak last weekend as they defeated West Ham 3-2 in the Premier League thanks to a very late goal from Harry Kane. Mauricio Pochettino's men are in real danger of being knocked out of the Champions League at the end of the group stage matches, they have lost twice already and another defeat would most likely put them out of the race. Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela and Ben Davies are injured and won't be able to play on Tuesday.
Monaco: Subasic - Raggi, Glik, Jemerson, Sidibe - Lemar, Bakayoko, Fabinho, B. Silva - Falcao, Germain
Tottenham: Lloris - Trippier, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose - Wanyama, Dembele - Sissoko, Alli, Son Heung-Min - Kane
My prediction: 1-1 draw.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Monaco win - 2.60
Draw - 3.40
Tottenham win - 2.88

Obviously the two teams have been in completely different shape lately, Spurs who had long spell without win and Monaco unbeaten since a long time. That's why the Monaco in shouldn't be a surprising fact I think.
Looks like Spurs will play in Europa League next, their favourite tournament, they never miss it.
