Real Madrid vs Monaco: Prediction and Betting Tips
Real Madrid favorites to win their second game of the season
After a very convincing win in their opening game against champions Anadolu Efes, Real lost their second game against Olympiacos. Now Los Blancos host their first game on home soil at the WiZink Center. Notably, this is the first-ever match between these two teams.
However, in a relatively low-scoring game in Athens, Real had their worst offensive outing this season scoring just 68 points. Moreover, the 31 combined points of Williams-Goss and Tavares were not enough to prevent Real from their first defeat of the season. Nonetheless, coach Pablo Laso’s team came back with a fine away win in Liga ACB against Valencia on Sunday.
Real Madrid Key Stats
- The average points scored by Real Madrid in the Euroleague this season is 75
- Real Madrid’s three-point average is 25.4%
- In their last match against Olympiacos, real made just 39.3% of their field goals

Monaco high in confidence as they face Real
In their first-ever trip to Madrid, Monaco aims to extend their winning streak to three. Inspired by their second win away to Unics Kazan the Monegasque are having a flying start to their season in the Euroleague. Moreover, a great comeback that shows the French team’s fighting spirit was at the heart of the team.
To illustrate, coach Mitrovic’s team were trailing at the end of the third quarter by 12 points. However, they closed the gap to just one with two free throws for James with three seconds remaining. James made one of two shots as the game went into extra time. Surely Monaco deserved the win after outsourcing Kazan 6-14.
Monaco Key Stats
- The average points scored by Monaco in this year’s Euroleague is 81.5 points
- Monaco’s three-point shots made is 39.5 %
- 41 is the average rebounds grabbed by Monaco in two games
Real Madrid vs Monaco Prediction
Despite Real’s last defeat in Athens by Olympiacos, Pablo Laso’s team will bounce back. Already, they found their momentum with a win over Valencia on Sunday.
Moreover, led by Tavares, Poirier and Yabusele. Real have a very strong frontcourt. Also, having a 60% average from the mid-range, makes them a very dangerous team.
However, Monaco allowed 15 offensive rebounds, and the likes of Hall, Motum, and Motiejunas will have key roles to stop Real’s big guns.
In conclusion, Real are the firm favorites with 1.17 odds at Vbet. Obviously, it’s too low to play for so we will bet on the total points in this game and go with under 164.5 total points.
