Arsenal vs Monaco by TommyC

Arsenal
VS
Monaco
Lets be honest, this is the draw that most Arsenal fans wanted and they look to be in good enough form to lay down a marker tonight and qualify for the next round. Arsenal are playing much better at the moment since the return of the likes of Ozil from injury. Even in defeat against Tottenham they created lots of chances. Sanchez and Giroud look unplayable at times and I cant see anything other than a home win here.

 

Looking at the odds I fond there might be better value in vacking Arsenal to win to nil and im liking the odds. Monaco's champions league games this year have been low scoring tight events, just 5 goals total in their 6 games is proof of this. Goals have been a big problem for them and in the French league they have scored just 5 goals in their last 8 games.

 

Its hard to see Arsenal not scoring, with the attacking ability of the likes of Sanchez, Ozil, Cazorl and Giroud. On that thinking what do Monaco do? Do they go all out for an away goal and leave gaps at the back or play defensively and hope to catch Arsenal on the break?

 

I think Monaco will come with a defensive attitude and play for a clean sheet, not commiting too much forward and hoping they can take the tie back to their home pitch where they are not easily beaten and hope to win the tie in the second leg. I still cant see Arsenal not scoring though, 1 or 2 - 0 to the home side for me!
