Monaco will host Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday night with the french side aware a draw is enough for qualification but a win in the Stade Louis II could lead to topping the group as Bayer Leverkusen face a tough away trip to a Benfica side. This Monaco side have started to come into form at the right time of the season. Monaco winning the last two have been impressive, Dimitar Berbatov is really playing well hitting three in the last two games and is the key player up front for Monaco with Mouthino pulling the strings in midfield. But what is really impressive for Monaco at the moment is their defence, they have only conceded one goal in their last four games and were terrific when beaten Bayer Leverkusen in Germany. Defence will be key tomorrow for Monaco.
Zenit St Petersburg look likely to win the Russian Premier League , a super achievement in Andre Villa Boas first season in charge. Hulk, Witsel, Danny and Javi Garcia alongside Arshavin and Rondon. There is so much quality in this Zenit squad that the only shock is their lack of progress in Europe. A win in France tomorrow will be enough for this side to qualify but the question is can they break down a really strong Monaco defence?
I am taking the unders tomorrow. I love Monaco's defence , they have been superb recently and considering they went to Russia and managed a 0-0 against this Zenit side I think they can shut them down at home tomorrow as well.
