Monaco v Juventus Betting Tips: Wily visitors can get the job done

Most people would not have predicted that either of these two teams would be in the Champions League semi-finals if asked at the start of the season. However, their performances have more than earned them the right to be here. Out of these two sides, Monaco are certainly the biggest surprise package and their sensational form in Ligue 1 has transferred to Europe’s premier competition. They have won four out of their last five matches in all competitions. The sheer number of goals that Leanardo Jardim’s side have been scoring this season is absolutely incredible and is no doubt the…

Caen v Monaco Betting Tips: Jardim’s men to remain top of the pile

Having secured a place in the last eight of the Champions League during the week, Monaco get back down to business in Ligue 1 on Sunday as the travel to take on Caen at Stade Michel d’Ornano. The visitors will undoubtedly be riding high having beaten Man City to set up a mouthwatering tie against Borussia Dortmund, but there is still the small matter of a title race to focus on before their European adventure continues. Sunday’s fixture against Caen looks to be an excellent opportunity for the hosts to maintain their position at the top got the table. With no…

Group E is incredibly tight with just three points separating bottom from top. This of course means that each match is incredibly important for all teams, even when first place plays last place as we have in this fixture on Wednesday night. All four teams still have a chance of making it through to the knockout rounds. As well as topping Champions League Group E, Monaco are also doing well in Ligue 1 with Leonardo Jardim ‘s side second place in the league, six points behind surprise leaders Nice and ahead of oil-rich Paris Saint-Germain on goal difference. Monaco are…

Tottenham Hotspur v AS Monaco Betting Tips

As mentioned in my tip on the other Group E match, this group looks incredibly competitive so these first matches are incredibly important for teams to establish themselves as the head of the pack. Tottenham had suffered a somewhat stuttering start to the season after last season’s incredible title chase. That was until they went to Stoke on Saturday and thrashed their opponents 4-0 with key striker Harry Kane finally netting his first goal of the campaign. Spurs will play their Champions League matches at Wembley this season whilst construction continues at their normal home ground of White Hart Lane.…

AS Monaco v Villarreal Betting Tip

This match is certainly intriguing as, despite the fact they conceded two away goals in the first leg, Villarreal are by no means out of this tie. Monaco secured an outstanding result by beating the Yellow Submarine in their own waters and securing two away goals in the process. This impressive win against one of the bigger names in Europe followed on from their impressive 5-2 aggregate victory over Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the previous round. Their Ligue 1 campaign also got off to a good start with a win away at Nantes. However, Leonardo Jardim’s team have even more…

Lyon – Monaco. Laure James’ prediction

This is the game nobody wants to miss! Lyon and Monaco go head to head to fight for second place, and an automatic ticket to the Champions League. Monaco will be using one of their biggest threats, the counter-attack, but Lyon will be well drilled on how to handle this. Lyon are also definitely a much stronger side now than at the start of the campaign, and their success is borne from a convincing, confident turnaround, leaving them the envy of everyone in the league, besides champions Paris Saint Germain. Monaco will let them have the ball, they just have…

Rennes – Monaco. Laure James’ prediction

The battle for European places in Ligue 1 is set to come down to the wire with just four matches left and several teams still fighting. Monaco reclaimed second place from Lyon last weekend after a 2-1 win over Marseille. Rennes’ plough has been slowed by back-to-back defeats so they have a key motivation for Sunday’s tie. Their goalkeeper, Benoit Costil, said “everything’s still possible” and he’s right. Monaco meanwhile still have to go to Lyon on the penultimate weekend, who sit in third.  I’ve not been hugely impressed by Monaco lately, but this is too tricky to pick an…

Monaco – Marseille. Dmitry Khlestkin’s prediction

Monaco have won only one out of the last six. Marseille haven’t won even a single match in these six. If the hosts continue like this, they won’t see the Champions League next year. With Marseille the things are even worse, they are only six points away from the relegation zone. Of course, I don’t believe they will leave Ligue 1, but it’s a matter of honour for them to show good football tonight. This makes me think this will be an extremely nervous match with a lot of fouls. That’s why I suggest picking over 4.5 cards here. Antony…

PSG – Monaco. Laure James’ prediction

PSG demolished Troyes last week to claim their fourth title on the bounce, and now Monaco are out to spoil their homecoming party. As set up as this is for an upset, I really can’t see PSG allowing their rivals, who they’ve beaten twice this season, to ruin things. If you heard about the bust-up between Zlatan and Gregory Van der Wiel, you can guess they’re capable of disruption among themselves… Thiago Motta returns from suspension, and we could see Blaise Matuidi back, while Marco Verratti is still out with a groin strain. Let’s go for Match Handicap -1 Goal…

Angers – Monaco. Laure James’ prediction (VIDEO)

Monaco can continue their good run of form away to an out of sorts Angers. They were punished by Paris Saint Germain on their last outing, beaten 5-1 at Parc des Princes, and are missing the aggression and flair of Mangani in midfield. Monaco meanwhile are unbeaten in their last six, and capable of defending solidly from this opposition’s only real threat of set pieces. There are a few players out including Lacina Traoré, Elderson, and Jérémy Toulalan… But we might see Wagner Love, but Guido Carillo will hope to retain his starting place. There’s good value in Monaco getting…

Tottenham – Monaco. Laure James’ prediction (VIDEO)

Tottenham’s Europa League group stage adventure ends with Thursday’s meeting with Monaco. Spurs are already through and playing only for top spot while the Ligue 1 side must better Anderlecht’s result to progress. Mauricio Pochettino is going to rest Harry Kane, but top of the group brings big advantages so can he afford to? Monaco are not pushovers. And they’re set up to counter-attack which will probably help them as visitors. Needing to win is great motivation but I don’t think it will get them over the line. William Hill are offering both teams to score and Spurs to win,…

Monaco – Caen. Laure James’ prediction (VIDEO)

You’d think this would be pretty easy to call on paper but Monaco are without Jeremy Toulalan, he’s missing through injury, and Lacina Traore is missing through suspension. Caen defeated Bordeaux 4-1 in their last game, two of those scored by central defenders, but I think they’ll find this a much tighter affair, much cagier, and that goes for Monaco too. If you check out William Hill’s website they’ve got score draws, 1-1 at 7.0, 2-2 at 19.0 but I think 1-1’s a safe bet.
