Monaco vs Sparta Prague: Prediction and Betting Tips
Monaco have made it easy for them in the second leg
Monaco FC are looking for their 12th Champions League group stage appearance since the 1993-94 season. Their best result was reaching the final in 2004 and lost to DC Porto 3-0. Also, Les Monegasques made it to the semi-finals twice in 1994 and 2017.
On the opening day of the Ligue 1, Monaco drew at home with Nantes 1-1 last Friday. Niko Kovac’s team weren’t impressive offensively despite having 15 goal attempts of which only three were on target. On the other hand, Les Monegasques returned from Prague with two precious goals. That result must make Monaco’s task of advancing to the next round easier.
Monaco Key Points
- Monaco won six of their last ten matches
- Les Monegasques have scored in eight of their last ten matches
- The average goals scored by Monaco in their last ten matches is 1.6
Sparta Prague in search of a dream result
Sparta Prague will need a miracle performance to overturn their first-leg home defeat against Monaco. The Czech champions are looking for their first group stage appearance in the Champions League since 2005. They have advanced the group stage just once in the 2003-04 season when they were eliminated by AC Milan.
Apart from that defeat in the first leg, Sparta have won four of their last five matches. Additionally, the Czech side scored 12 goals in those four matches. In their last match in the Czech League, Sparta beat Karvina 2-0. That score would be a dream one for coach Vrba to send the tie to at least extra -time.
Sparta Prague Key Points
- Sparta have won eight of their last ten matches
- The Czech team had clean sheets in two of their last ten matches
- The Reds have scored in nine of their last ten matches
