Monaco vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 27 February 2022
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Monaco have turned their season around since the turn of the new year with convincing results and are now making a push for European football for the second consecutive season.
They were last seen in an away fixture against Bordeaux, where despite having to compete with ten men for the last hour of the contest, they managed to get away with a point as the match ended with a score line of 1-1.
This marked back to back draws for the club. Having gained eight points from their previous five league matches, they now sit sixth in Ligue 1, two points behind the 5th place club.
Reims are not putting enough points on the board, even for a team in the bottom half of the table. However, relegation is not a concern for the club anytime soon.
In their most recent league fixture, they faced another bottom half of the table club, Brest in which they had to settle for a draw after the contest concluded 1-1.
With three losses and a win preceding that draw, the club now find themselves in 14th position in the league standings, ten points behind their opponents for this Sunday.
Monaco vs Reims Head-to-head
- Les Rouges et Blancs are undefeated against this club in seven previous meetings.
- They registered four clean sheets in those games.
- However, three of those games ended scoreless.
- The visitors have won at this venue just once.
Monaco vs Reims Prediction
The Monégasques have registered four clean sheets in their last five home league games. Their opponents meanwhile have failed to score in their preceding three league matches on the road. Consequently, I do not see the away team getting themselves on the score sheet.
The hosts have scored across both halves in all of their wins at home this season. Furthermore, with their opponents scoring less than a goal on average in away fixtures this season, I have backed Monaco to win both halves.
