Foxes Too Strong for Great Danes
We all know the fairytale of Leicester's 5000/1 league success last season and Ranieri's men may be forgiven for failing to replicate that domestic form this time out. It's a different story entirely, though, in Europe's elite competition. The Foxes are chasing a brand new fairytale as they look to continue their 100% record in the competition and seal qualification to the knockouts in the process. I can see momentum carrying them through this one, just as it carried them to the Premier League title last term. Nothing can stop a team flying this high.
I can see Leicester winning comfortably in this one.
Tottenham to Take a Point
It's become a frustratingly familiar sight for the Tottenham faithful to see the scores tied at the final whistle in recent weeks. Whilst they remain the only unbeaten team in the league, a run of draws has done little to convince fans that they're on the verge of something great. A goalless draw in the reverse fixture against Leverkusen displayed just how cagey this group is- both in the scoreline and the performance. I would be surprised if the Wembley crowd couldn't urge their team to at least a goal in this one, especially with the news that Harry Kane is back in training. Even if the young Englishman isn't fit in time, his re-emergence may provide a much-needed kick up the backside for stand-in striker Vincent Janssen to score a goal... and not from the penalty spot!
They will face stern opposition from the German side in this contest so I think we'll be looking at a 1-1 draw, although there's always the chance that the crowd could squeeze a little more out of the players to take all 3 points.
Monaco and Moscow's Narrow Margins
Staying in the extremely tight Group E, there is very little to separate these two sides. Monaco got off to a flying start by upsetting the Wembley crowd win a 1-2 win over Tottenham; a win that could prove to be the difference in this group. CSKA Moscow's two draws and a loss are slightly less flattering but it is certainly a testament to how evenly matched this group is that a win in this fixture could not only lift them off bottom spot but could allow them to overtake their opponents for the top spot.
Monaco will be out for blood as they sense the opportunity to separate themselves from the pack but I can't split these two teams so I'm hedging my bets with a draw. #Football #Champions League #Betting
