Why Tottenham should be confident of scoring against Monaco

The White Hart Lane outfit head to the Stade Louis II tomorrow night, with their opposition conceding eight goals in their last three games.

After dispatching Manchester City 4-1 in as good a display as in the recent memory, Tottenham will look to build some momentum with victory over Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Arguably the toughest test for Mauricio Pochettino’s men in their European group, Leonardo Jardim’s men boast some excellent players - especially in the final third.

However, the travelling cohort should arrive at the Stade Louis II full of confidence following their weekend win, while they will feel they have the firepower to get a result in the Principality.

The hosts’ recent record suggests that Tottenham should be able to get at their back four, with Monaco conceding a whopping eight goals in their last three games.

The south coast club, who are ninth in Ligue 1 currently, have looked decidedly shaky at the back in recent weeks against relatively modest opposition.

A 3-3 draw last time out against Guingamp followed on from a 3-2 win against Montpellier, while the fixture before that Jardim’s men were beaten 3-2 at home by Lorient.

Given that Monaco have been conceding goals of late, Spurs should be more than able to break them down - with a victory on Thursday surely playing a considerable role in seeing the side through to the next round of the competition.
