Betting Tip: Monaco @ 23/10 with bet365

Monaco shocked Arsenal in their first leg Champions League last 16 encounter at the Emirates, and are now heavily odds-on at 1/7 with BetVictor and William Hill to qualify for the quarters.

The tie is not over yet, but here are five players from Arsene Wenger’s former Ligue 1 club (23/10 with bet365 and BoyleSports for victory in 90 minutes in France) that have the potential to cause the Gunners more problems.

Dimitar Berbatov
Former Manchester United and Tottenham forward Berbatov is no stranger to facing Arsenal, as he played against them 17 times whilst in England. He managed just four goals from those games, but was in great form for Monaco in the first leg, and scored the second for his team. He is priced at 23/10 with Ladbrokes to net again anytime.

Yannick Ferreira Carrasco
Carrasco is another exciting young Belgian to look out for, and the 21-year-old has featured heavily for Monaco this term, netting six times and setting up a further nine in all competitions. He netted a late third after coming on as a sub in the first leg, and you can back him at 5/1 again with Ladbrokes in the anytime market.

Anthony Martial
Forward Martial is still just a teenager, but has played a big part for Monaco this season, and set up Berbabtov’s goal at the Emirates. He’s netted five times this term in all competitions, and is 3/1 with Ladbrokes to score anytime at the Stade Louis II.

Joao Moutinho
Moutinho has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, particularly with Chelsea most recently, and is perhaps Monaco’s best player. He has played in a variety of roles in midfield this term, and already netted in the Champions League this season. Majestic Moutinho is a tempting 13/2 with 888sport to be on target again.

Alain Traore
Burkina Faso attacker Traore is the brother of Chelsea starlet Bertrand, and has recently joined Monaco on loan from Lorient. He has only featured for his temporary club in domestic cup competitions, but could make an appearance against Arsenal from off the bench. BoyleSports have him priced at 9/1 to net last.
