Monaco demonstrated that they would be competitive in the Champions League by taking out Fenerbahce and Villarreal in qualifying and they haven't disappointed in Group E, debuting with a 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley and following up with a draw against Bayer Leverkusen.
Strong European form has been accompanied by a promising start in Ligue 1, where 19 points from nine games has them tying with champions Paris St-Germain for second place.
They have already won five times on their travels this term, with Champions League triumphs at Villarreal and Spurs doubling up with domestic success at Nantes (1-0), Lille (4-1) and Metz (7-0) to render it a surprise that they are 2.8815/8 outsiders in this contest.
Whereas Monaco prevailed in their road opener, CSKA Moscow were defeated by Tottenham in their first outing as hosts to undermine their recovery from 2-0 down for a 2-2 draw in Leverkusen.
The Russian title holders have been on a dire run regardless of being rated narrow 2.829/5 favourites, delivering once and losing three times across their last five matches in all competitions. They are also winless in six Champions League group ties, being beaten without scoring in the latest two at home.
