Tottenham Hotspur can only be happy with the draw they received for the Champions League group stage and are expected to make a winning start at home to Monaco on Wednesday.

Our best bet for this match: Tottenham Hotspur to win and over 1.5 goals in the match (combined bet) at 5/4 with BetStars

Of the four English clubs in this competition, Spurs and Premier League champions Leicester City had most reason to be pleased with the make-up of their pools for the round-robin stage whereas Manchester City and Arsenal may be a little less satisfied.

Spurs could have found themselves in with a real European giant but instead, the seed they will face is CSKA Moscow while Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco complete the quartet.

It’s definitely one of the most open groups but Tottenham are favourites to finish top of the table at best odds of 28/17 (almost 13/8) with bwin, the closely-matched nature of the line-up summed up by the fact top seeds CSKA are the outsiders at prices ranging from 4/1 to 9/1!

A good start is always important and Spurs will be confident of making just that against a Monaco side they faced during the group stage of last season’s Europa League.

On that occasion, Mauricio Pochettino’s side had already qualified when they hosted Monaco in their final game and clinched top spot with a 4-1 win at White Hart Lane thanks to an Erik Lamela hat-trick, while the previous match at the Stade Louis II finished as a 1-1 draw. Ultimately, Monaco bowed out as Anderlecht claimed second place in the group.

This season, the Ligue 1 club look like they mean business and after overturning a 2-1 deficit from the away leg against Fenerbahce in the qualifiers to triumph 3-1 at home, they added another notable scalp to their collection by ousting Villarreal.

Leonardo Jardim’s side also have a 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain to their credit and will hope to have a run at the domestic title having been left trailing in the champions’ wake over the last couple of years.

But Tottenham will see this as a good opportunity and while they have been found out in knockout ties against strong European teams in the last couple of seasons, their group-stage results are largely impressive.

It may not be easy for them, but we are backing Tottenham and fancy the match will be open enough to forsake 1-0 as a winning option in order to boost the bet to a more backable price.

Recommended bets:
