Tottenham take on AS Monaco in the final group game of the Europa League with Spurs already through to the knockout stages of the tournament. Meanwhile, the French side need a win and also hope for Qarabag to get a result against Anderlecht to progress into the next round.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 8.05pm GMT. Live coverage of the game will be on BT Sport Europe and BT Sport Europe HD.


Tottenham are currently three points ahead of Anderlecht in the group with a superior goal difference and are favourites to go through as leaders into the round of 16, which should afford them an easier fixture for the knockout stages. However, should they lose and Anderlecht win their game against Qarabag, the duo will be level on points and their league position will be determined by goal difference, with head-to-head not able to separate the two.

Spurs come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion in the league and are likely to rest a lot of players to keep themselves fresh for their upcoming league fixture against Newcastle. Mauricio Pochettino is likely to give Harry Kane a rest while Mousa Dembele is confirmed to be out of the game with illness.

Monaco's hopes of going into the next round are hanging by a thread, a stark contrast from their performance in Europe last season, when they famously defeated Arsenal in the round of 16 to progress into the quarter-finals. Their tally of one win and three draws has done little to help their chances and their hopes will now be on Qarabag to pull a rabbit out of the hat for them to progress.

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino: "Always it is tough, it was a tough decision when we played against Qarabag and now it's tough again. Always we share the information with the sports science and medical department. We make the best decision for every game. Tomorrow is a good opportunity to finish first and win the group - this is our objective. I think the squad we have is strong enough to compete in different competitions but maybe if you compare (the team) to the game against Qarabag there will be some changes, but not too much."

Leonardo Jardim: "The team is progressing. We were aggressive against Bastia at the weekend. It was an important victory because we achieved it with a lot of young players, which corresponds to the club's project of developing youngsters. It is great to win matches and that is always our ambition. It is difficult to explain why we are better away from home, but the team will continue to develop."
