Champions League Opponents: Monaco

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TALK


Monaco hold no fears having played them last season. They are not the moneybags team they were for a brief period and their tiny stadium often sees top stars wanting to leave after a season. Their coach Leonardo Jardim was appointed in July 2014, which makes us a trio of coaches in this group appointed that summer. The development of team philosophies, as Pochettino puts it, should be well embedded by now so no excuse not knowing what to expect from each other.

The game in Monaco last season in the UEFA Europa League saw us draw 1-1, a game we should easily have won. Once again we were not clinical enough in front of goal, but at White Hart Lane there was no mistake. These are two fixtures we can go into with confidence and the short travelling distance is a bonus.
