Monaco 5.80 v Atletico Madrid 1.80; The Draw 3.60 Tuesday 18 September, 20:00 Live on BT Sport ESPN
Both teams in poor form
Atletico Madrid are amongst the most consistent Champions League sides and proved their European pedigree last season, despite going out in the group stage.
It was a surprise to see Atletico finish third behind Roma and Chelsea, but they made the most of a bad situation by winning the Europa League, having dropped into the competition as a third placed qualifier. This season they were strongly tipped to be competing for more silverware after a strong summer in the transfer market, yet so far they've made a slow start.
They won the European Super Cup in impressive fashion with a win over arch rivals Real Madrid, but their league form has been patchy. They've won only one of their four games in La Liga (D2 L1) and drew at home to Eibar at the weekend.
Monaco also have just one league win to their name and they've played five games. Currently 15th in League 1, Monaco are now without a win in four outings (D2 L2).
Atletico will keep it tight
Atletico's price to win is tempting given the quality in the squad, but they're too unreliable at the moment, even against a Monaco side that are struggling themselves.
Where Atletico are reliable is defensively. Last season only one of their six Champions League group games produced three goals or more, with two finishing as 0-0 draws. Under 2.5 goals therefore looks the safe bet at odds of 1.72
Back under 2.5 goals between Monaco and Atletico Madrid at 1.72
