Monaco are back in action with a crucial UEFA Champions League qualifier this week as they take on Sparta Prague on Tuesday. Both teams can be impressive on their day and will need to step up to the plate in this match.

Sparta Prague have been a dominant force in Czech Republic and will want to prove their mettle in Europe's premier competition. The Czech giants face a tough test this week and cannot afford a defeat in this fixture.

Monaco, on the other hand, have shown tremendous improvement under Niko Kovac and have been in impressive form. Les Monegasques dropped points in their Ligue 1 curtain-raiser and will want to bounce back this week.
