Glenn Hoddle gives his thoughts on Monaco v Tottenham, predicts result

Glenn Hoddle

Glenn Hoddle believes his former clubs Monaco and Tottenham will draw 1-1 this evening.

Former Tottenham manager Glenn Hoddle has told Kicca that tonight's game against Monaco could be tough, despite the respective form of the two teams.

Hoddle, now working as a pundit, was a player and manager for Spurs, whilst he also left the club in 1987 to play for tonight's opponents Monaco.

Spurs head in to their Europa League group stage clash having beaten Premier League title favourites Manchester City 4-1 at White Hart Lane on Saturday, and they also opened their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 win over Qarabag last month.

Mauricio Pochettino's men are in good form, and face a trip to Monaco to face Leonardo Jardim's side, who of course knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League last season.

Yet, having lost the likes of Aymen Abdennour, Layvin Kurzawa, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Anthony Martial over the summer, Jardim has seen his side make a slow start to the new season, with three wins, three draws and two defeats in Ligue 1.

Despite the two teams being in completely opposite form, Hoddle has told Kicca that he believes the game will be tough for Tottenham - and has predicted a 1-1 draw between the two teams this evening.

"Two teams that are close to my heart," said Hoddle. "I played for both of them and had fantastic times at both clubs, so it's a really interesting game for me to go down and watch."

"Spurs are in good form, Monaco not so much in good form actually, they haven't started so well, ninth in the league, so it's a good time for Tottenham to go down there and play them. I think it might be a tough game though, I think it might end up a 1-1 draw," he added.
