Two years after they went out with their heads held high one April evening, with a quarter-final defeat to Juventus, the Red & Whites are back in the most prestigious of competitions. In front of 90,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium, Leonardo Jardim's men will be looking to get their European campaign off to the best possible start. Just as they did the last time they were involved in this competition, when they beat Leverkusen. The coach will have almost a full complement of players to call on, with Lemar, Subasic and Carrillo all back from injury. Our players will have just one aim in their minds: to emulate RC Lens, the only French club ever to win at Wembley. That was in 1998, against Arsenal in the group stage of the Champions League. Another time.

Leonardo Jardim: "They are stronger than last year. But so are we. We're more solid, less fragile. This match will be more even, tighter. Tottenham are slight favourites but we'll be doing everything we can to impose our game and win it."
This will be the seventh time AS Monaco has been involved in the group stage of the Champions League. The only French clubs to have qualified for the UCL group phase on more occasions are Lyon (14), Marseille and Paris (9).
