Having scored three times but still lost by two clear goals in the first leg, Monaco will need their impressive array of attacking talent to maintain their prolific form when Manchester City visit the Stade Louis II for Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 clash.
On the scoresheet twice at the Etihad Stadium, Radamel Falcao is his side’s 7/2 (4.50) favourite with Paddy Power to get the ball rolling in the second leg, and priced at just 8/13 (1.62) to add to his current total of six goals in this season’s competition.
However, having also found the net last time out, Kylian Mbappe offers stronger value to enhance his growing reputation even further at 11/10 (2.10) anytime odds, considering he has struck 10 goals in his last 10 appearances.
While that front pair alone provided enough of a handful for Pep Guardiola’s team in the first leg, the hosts’ firepower is certainly not restricted to the forwards.
With 20 goals between them so far from midfield, Thomas Lemar and Bernardo Silva are both more than capable of popping up with an important strike and can each be backed at 7/4 (2.75) to see their name in lights on Wednesday.
Although they will feel rightly confident of having some joy in attack, Leonardo Jardim’s side must be careful not to leave themselves exposed at the back considering their opposition’s star-studded forward line.
Having struck twice in the first game to take his total to eight goals in eight European games this campaign, Sergio Aguero is a slim 7/2 (4.50) to open the scoring and 8/15 (1.53) to find the net anytime.
After getting the ball rolling last time out, Raheem Sterling is on offer at 11/5 (3.20) to hit the back of the net once again, while fellow first-leg marksman Leroy Sane is a slightly longer 5/2 (3.50) as he makes up a fearsome visiting front three.
Should extra firepower be needed from the bench, Kelechi Iheanacho, priced at 11/10 (2.10), offers another excellent option for the free-scoring Citizens.
