Tottenham take on AS Monaco in their opening group game in the Champions League at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday (14 September).

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on BT Sport Europe and BT Sport Europe HD.


Tottenham welcome Monaco for their first Champions League group game of the campaign and it will be a historic moment as they will face off at Wembley Stadium rather than White Hart Lane. Spurs are set to play their European games this season at England's home stadium owing to construction work taking place in part of their stadium.

Spurs are embarking on their second Champions League campaign with their previous appearance coming during the 2010-11 campaign when they reached the quarter-finals, where they lost to Real Madrid. Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to get off to a winning start when they face current Ligue 1 leaders Monaco.

The French club have started the season in fine form and are currently unbeaten with three wins and a draw in their first four games of the campaign. Leonardo Jardim's side will be hoping to keep the momentum going when they face the Premier League side on Wednesday.

The two clubs were paired in Group J in the Europa League last season with Tottenham winning their home game 4-1 with Erik Lamela scoring a hat-trick. The French side will be keen to avoid a repeat when they meet in Wembley.

The iconic stadium has been previously used for Champions League matches with Arsenal using it in the 1998/99 and 1999/00 seasons.

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino: It will be a historic moment for us. We need to go to Wembley to play, act naturally and try to win games – and not try to find excuses. We need to play and try to beat Monaco. That is the most important thing. It will be an exciting moment to play with Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League. It will be fantastic – it's difficult to describe the feeling. I think it will be exciting for everyone. You have more space to play [on a bigger pitch]. It's difficult for the opponent to press you when you have more space.

Leonardo Jardim: It should be a fairly close game. In comparison to last season, we are less fragile than in December [when Tottenham beat Monaco 4-1 at White Hart Lane] and we've strengthened. Spurs are a very competitive team, but we've got our plans that will hopefully help us. We're going out to try and win the game. The team are in a good place at the moment and our form is good in Ligue 1. Hopefully we'll put in a good performance that will allow us to get on the right path to qualification.
