Reims vs Monaco
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 21st September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.
Reims form has taken a hit in recent weeks and they have won just one game from their past four heading into this match. Last weekend the club lost 1-0 at Nantes.
At home they have beaten Lille and drawn with Strasbourg and they should be optimistic in getting the best over Monaco, their visitors on Saturday evening. Reims have 7 points and are in 11th place heading into this game.
The misery continues for Monaco it seems. Despite leading Marseille 2-0 last weekend through two Wissam Ben Yedder goals-their new forward signing they lost a thrilling 7 goal match as Marseille ran out 4-3 winners, and that was another loss for Leonardo Jardim’s side.
Monaco have lost 3 of their five matches and are yet to win this season and come into this match in 19th place with 2 points. The big worry is that they have shipped 14 goals so far, this is double the worst conceded by other teams in a similar situation, and Monaco have a very poor defence. Can Jardim so famed for sorting out Monaco’s defence a few seasons ago, do so again? It looks like a lost cause.
Reims vs Monaco: Head to Head
- Last season Reims won this match 1-0.
- Reims have only beaten Monaco once in the last 7 meetings.
- 3 of the last 4 meetings have ended in under 2.5 goals.
Reims vs Monaco: Prediction
Both sides come into this game with some confidence missing but Reims have been solid at home this season.
With Monaco you are wondering where the next win is going to come from, the one shining light for them is Ben Yedder up front who is doing his job and scoring goals and should be a danger in this game.
But we will go for the home side to pull out all the stops, and they should be able to create many chances in this game and test this very leaky Monaco defence. There are some great value prices to be had in this game, and we should take advantage of that.
