Leipzig have the tools to trouble toiling hosts

Leipzig's top scorer Timo Werner
1 of 1

Champions League Group G
Live on BT Sport Extra, 7.45pm Tuesday

The mood for these two could be determined by what happens in the earlier group fixture between Besiktas and Porto but until the result is known both teams will be feeling they must win.

It should lead to an entertaining fixture, although that is reflected in short prices about both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals so it may pay to back Leipzig on the handicap.

There is a chance that Monaco may be out of the Champions League by the time the match starts should Porto triumph in Turkey, while whatever happens the Germans will still be alive.

Leipzig have been slightly in a daze during this debut Champions League campaign and they were clearly spooked away to Besiktas but the atmosphere in Monaco is nothing like Istanbul.

Timo Werner has scored in his last three and one goal may be enough for at least a point.
