Monaco vs Reims
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 13th April 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco and Reims will do battle at the weekend in a game which could be quite intriging.
The home side have been resting on their laurels somewhat given that they now look safe and have won just 1 game in their past five. For them the job is done and Leonardo Jardim was drafted back in to save the club from relegation.
They are in 16th and 7 points clear of the drop and yet the performance level just seem to have dropped off too much.
Monaco lost their last home game against Caen 1-0 which was seen as shock and they face a tough game at the weekend.
Reims are chasing Europe and have been very solid in the 2nd half of the season. This has seen the club draw 1-1 against 2nd placed Lille at the weekend and there is a real fighting spirit within the team. However Reims last away game ended in a 4-0 defeat against Strasbourg, which brought them back down to Earth in their quest to finish in a European spot.
Overall form for Reims is good with 1 loss in their last five but they have also drawn too many games recently, with 3 in their last five.
Monaco vs Reims: Head to Head
Reims beat Monaco earlier in the reverse fixture 1-0.
The last time the teams met here was in 2016 when the game finished 2-2.
Reims have not won at Monaco since 2011.
Monaco vs Reims: Prediction
We’re expecting an exciting game here and can see both teams getting on the score sheet. Reims have more motivation than Monaco to win this and have been more on the ball, but this still remains a difficult place for Reims to visit. Cesc Fabregas has really stepped up in recent weeks and we think his positioning is to be more forward in the coming weeks that is why we will back him at home to get on the score sheet.
Monaco vs Reims: Bet Tips
Both teams to score at 2.00 (1/1)
Anytime goalscorer: Cesc Fabregas (Monaco) at 4.00 (3/1)
