TV: ESPN; Bein Sports
Monaco host Lens on Tuesday evening with both teams desperate for a win. Monaco will look to Mouthino and Berbatov to inspire them to a victory that could see them close the gap on the top four. Monaco's domestic form has been poor this season but they will need to snap out of their current funk if they are to compete in the Champions League next season. With a strong defence led by ex Chelsea defender Carvalyho Monaco are tough to beat at home and will be looking at this game as a must win.
Lens have really struggled at home, Touzghar and Chavarria can score though and will give Lens a chance if they can create chances. Lens have lost five of their eight away games but they face a Monaco team that have only won two of their seven home games this season. This could be a tight encounter. Monaco have struggled to put teams away this season and Lens while in the bottom half have the best goals against record in the bottom half.
I am taking the unders here and am tempted by the draw. Monaco have been so inconsistant that I just dont feel like they should be 2/5 favourites even when facing a bottom three side. Take the unders and follow me on twitter @antonpippo
