Europa League 2nd round matches
Posted 29. september 2015
Shared history in Monaco, Ricardo Quaresma's return, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar targets exclusive club and Pepe Reina set to equal Roberto Carlos - these will be the 2nd matchday highlights. Monaco and Tottenham have met once before, the French side beating André-Villas Boas's Spurs 5-2 in an August 2013 friendly – notable less for Radamel Falcao's two goals than for the fact Gareth Bale was absent, negotiating his move to Real Madrid. Ricardo Quaresma, the one-time 'Harry Potter' of Portuguese football will hope his first club have an off-night as he meets Sporting for the first time as a Beşiktaş player. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who has struck five in eight outings for the Royal Blues this term, can join an exclusive club featuring the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Raúl González by registering against Asteras in Gelsenkirchen. Pepe Reina, should he play at Legia, the Spaniard will move onto 144 UEFA club appearances.
