The win was Monaco's sixth straight in all competitions, ahead of facing Rennes in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim used his side's victory over Arsenal two seasons ago to inspire them to its 2-1 success against Tottenham in the Champions League. First-half goals from Bernardo Silva and Thomas Lemar at Wembley inspired Monaco to victory on Wednesday. Toby Alderweireld pulled a goal back for Spurs on the stroke of half-time, but it suffered defeat in the Group E clash.
