Venue: Stade Louis II, Monaco
Monaco, who have enjoyed a rich history in the Champions League in recent years, will be hoping to get back into the big time as they host Sparta Prague.
Niko Kovac’s side had too much for Sparta Prague in the first leg in the Czech capital but both sides will be all too aware of exactly what is at stake here.
Monaco (2) vs Sparta Prague (0) Match Prediction
With a third-place finish in Ligue 1 under their belts last season, Monaco will be hoping to kick on this year and the Champions League qualification would allow them to do that.
Niko Kovac has assembled a squad with plenty of youth and experience and they seem to have got rid of their reputation as a selling club, allowing them to keep some of their better players.
Alexander Nübel has been entrusted in goal for Monaco, following his loan move from Schalke with Axel Disasi an exciting prospect in central defence ahead of him.
Cesc Fabregas could be called upon to keep things ticking in midfield with Youssouf Fofana providing industry and passing ability in equal measure.
Wissam Ben Yedder is deadly in front of goal and scored in the first leg and his partnership with Kevin Volland is renowned across European football.
Sparta Prague have enjoyed some excellent performances in both the Czech domestic league and European competitions in recent seasons, but they could have their work cut out here.
The first leg between the two sides in the Czech capital was a very even one, with Monaco’s quality in front of goal ultimately enough to present them with a 2-0 lead in the tie.
Sparta won’t give up though heading into this one and they have a squad capable of causing a few problems for the men from the principality here.
Romanian goalkeeper Florin Niță is an assured presence while Filip Panák is a talented centre-back in front of him.
Bořek Dočkal has represented the Czech national team with aplomb in recent times while David Pavelka is a no-nonsense central midfielder.
Goal threats come in the form of Swede David Moberg Karlsson and Czech native Jakub Pešek, both of whom will need to be clinical if Sparta Prague are to have any chance of progressing here.
