With just four points from four matches, Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions’ League hopes are now hanging by a thread.  Their problems have come at their temporary Wembley Stadium home, where they have lost both their matches.

Tottenham’s difficulties started with a 2-1 loss at home to Monaco in the opening group game and failure to secure three points in the Principality would end their Champions’ League ambitions were Bayer Leverkusen to win away to CSKA Moscow in the night’s other E game.

It’s been a curious season for Tottenham to date.  They have the best defensive record in the Premier League with just six goals conceded in 11 matches and remain the only unbeaten team in the EPL.  However, ahead of their league game at home to West Ham United on Saturday, Mauricio Pochettino’s team is winless in seven matches in all competitions, during which time they’ve scored just four goals.

Tottenham’s problems in front of goal have carried over into Europe, with just two goals to their name from their first four group games.  On the plus side, Harry Kane should start in the Stade Louis II, having missed the last three group games.

Monaco are having a fine season as things stand.  They sit top of their Champions’ League group with eight points and should they avoid defeat against the Londoners, Monaco will be assured of progress to the last 16 with a game remaining.  

They are also second in Ligue 1 behind local rivals Nice ahead of Friday’s trip to bottom of the table Lorient.  They’ve been scoring goals at an incredible rate, with 36 goals at a rate of three per game in the French league.  Leonardo Jardim’s team have been less prolific in the Champions’ League, but have still found the back of the net seven times.  

With so much at stake, Tottenham will be desperate not to concede early on.  With Monaco not really needing to go all out for the win, the opening 45-minutes could be relatively cautious as a consequence and backing 0-0 as a Half-time Correct Score looks a decent shout.
