Sparta – Monaco

Sparta will welcome Monaco to Letna Stadium on Tuesday evening, with both sides looking to secure a first-leg advantage in their Champions League third qualifying round contest. Monaco qualified for this stage after placing third in Ligue 1 last term, while Sparta recorded a 3-2 aggregate victory over Rapid Vienna in the second qualifying round of this season’s competition.

Sparta played in the group stages of last season’s Europa League, finishing third in Group H behind AC Milan and Lille, with their only two victories in the section coming against Celtic. Monaco, as mentioned, have not had to play a Champions League fixture to reach this round, as they automatically qualified for this stage of the competition courtesy of finishing third in Ligue 1 last season.

Sparta are more than capable of making this a very tricky two-legged affair for Monaco, and both sides will be desperate to avoid defeat in the opening fixture. We are expecting a tight and cagey affair in Prague but believe that Monaco will keep a clean sheet and score a goal to place themselves in an excellent position.
