Monaco vs Reims: 29th February 2020, Saturday.
French Ligue 1, Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Monaco’s 3 game winning run came to an end last weekend, but it wasn’t in defeat at least as they drew 1-1 away to Dijon.
Despite a draw Monaco are still in 5th and have a great chance to finish the season strong and claim a European place.
The club have won their last 2 games at home and have also won 65% of their game at Stade Louis II. They are also scoring just over 2 goals a game so goals are not in short supply.
Reims are in 8th and could go past Monaco with a win as they are just two points adrift of them.
The overall problem for Reims is that they have drawn 10 games. If they had converted those matches into wins they would be in 2nd place now. But if losses they would be in 16th.
Reims form is decent as they have gained 8 point from their last 15, but again their season has been hampered from being a great one because all of the draws they have churned out.
Away from home they have won 5 and lost 5, but have lost just once from their last four games, with their last away game ending in a 1-1 draw with Saint Etienne.
Monaco vs Reims: Head to Head
The last two matches that the teams have played in the league have both finished 0-0.
The teams last met here in January in the Coupe de France with Monaco winning 2-1.
Reims have not won at Stade Louis II since 2011.
Monaco vs Reims: Prediction
Monaco are in a good moment and we expect them to attack from the first whistle and be a real danger here.
Reims just seem to be unraveling slightly away from home, look at their recent 3-0 loss against Strasbourg as evidence. They do not have a good record here and we really would not be surprised if they were to lose this game.
So we will back Monaco to get the win and we will also back the majority of the goals to come as the game goes on so more in the 2nd half.
