Choose a refund bet for Monaco v Arsenal
French Ligue 1 side Monaco is in the driver’s seat this Tuesday, March 17 as they face English Premier League club Arsenal in the second leg of their round-of-16 European Champions League tie. Monaco upset the Gunners 3-1 at the Emirates in London a couple of weeks ago and are determined not to blow their lead. The winner of the tie will advance to the quarterfinals and for Arsenal to even things up they need to score a 3-1 win on the road. A draw or 2-0 win will do them no good because of Monaco’s three away goals. This means the English side needs to win by three goals or by two goals as long as they can score at least four. The problem is they’ve never won a game in France by more than a single goal.
Arsenal is unbeaten in their past 11 visits to French stadiums with seven victories and four draws, but have been knocked out of the tournament four years running in the final 16 stage. They’re coming off a 3-0 triumph over West Ham on the weekend and have managed at least a pair of goals in five of their past six outings. Monaco has won three consecutive Champions League encounters and have won 18 of their two dozen Champions League matches overall at the Stade Louis II. Real Madrid is the only side with a better home record in the tournament’s history.
Monaco has three straight clean sheets at home and have knocked English teams out of Europe on the last three occasions they’ve met one. In addition, nobody has a better defensive record than Monaco in this year’s Champions League campaign.
