Champions League Betting: Can Arsenal Stay Alive in Monaco?Published March 17, 2015 by Sol FH
The Gunners need three goals to continue in their Champions League campaign, tonight at 17:45 (UK).
The second leg of the Champions League gets underway tonight between Monaco and Arsenal. It's do or die for the visitors tonight after losing at home in the first leg 3-1. They are ready to leave it all on the pitch tonight though, as they desperately need a big win tonight in order to move on in the tournament.
Arsene Wenger will be without Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but returning from injury are Mikel Arteta and Gabriel Paulista for the Gunners. "We have experience, the desire and belief we can do it," related Wenger, speaking ahead of tonight's matchup. "We want to give everything to have the greatest performance on the pitch."
It will be a very tough mission, especially that no team has ever successfully won after down by a two-goal deficit away from home. It is however their own fault, as the first leg was an ugly game and as Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer called a "staggeringly inept display".
Monaco's Manager, Leonardo Jardim said "We played a dream game, our perfect game, which is why the result ended up like this. "Monaco have not lost a game at Stade Louis II in their last 16 games and are unbeaten at home in the Champions League. It will be familiar territory for Wenger, as he was the Manager at Monaco from 1987 until 1994.
