Reims – Monaco Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 14:00

Though based in Monaco, Les Rouges et Blances as they are commonly referred to play their games in the French football league system. Members of the top tier Ligue 1, Monaco play their home matches at the Stade Louis II in Fontvieille in front of 18,500 people. The Principality club boasts a turbulent history, which saw Monaco reach the highest heights of both domestic and international scene, but also get relegated to the amateur leagues at the very beginnings and to Ligue 2 in 2010-11 season.

As a result were backing Reims to convert here. Monaco have won just one of their last 13 away games with them conceding five in the two trips this season. Monaco have been very good going forward recently though so were also expecting the Monegasques to get a goal here in a match we predict will finish 1-1. This was a very tight fixture last year with a draw and a narrow 1-0 win for Reims.

On the other side, Reims has 7 points from 5 games, but the only difference is their defense. Marseille has scored 4 in the last round, taking 3 points from Monaco. Last time these two teams faced each other, the match ended in a goalless fashion 0:0. They are a team with some flaws of course, as they have scored only 4 goals or under one per game. Monaco started this season disastrously as they only have 2 points from 5 games played. By looking at all of this, I see Reims winning this one in front of their home supporters, due to the catastrophic defense of their rivals. These two teams have played a lot of games in their recent Head-to-Head history. We dont usually see many goals being scored in their duels. In fact, we didnt see both teams scoring in 3 of their previous 4 matches. Their defense is remarkable with only 2 goals in their net through 5 games at the start of this season. They have conceded 14 goals already or almost 3 per game, believe it or not.

Reims will be the strikers most difficult test yet though as Reims have the second best xGA in the league, a stat only bettered by Paris Saint-Germain.

Monaco chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in January and, as a result, les Rouges et Blancs are on the right track to secure the Ligue 1 survival. head into Saturdays football following a 1-1 draw with Guingamp, but they are seen as hot favourites to beat Reims on Matchday 32. Cesc Fabregas and Co. Leonardo Jardims troops produce better displays at home than on the travels and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.

Theyve held Lille to a 1-1 draw in front of the home crowd last week and this should give David Guion and his men a lot to build on despite more troubles seen on the road. Reims have, on the other end, seen struggles for consistency of their own but still sit just three points behind the 4th placed Saint-Etienne.

Reims vs Monaco Prediction & Match Preview

A Malian midfielder Moussa Doumbia has been with Russian side FK Rostov since 2014. Doumbia spent two years playing for the Scorpions in the Malien Premiere Division, the top rank in the country. The 22-year-old powerful midfielder started his career with Real Bamako in 2012. Russian side recognised his talent and made a transfer in 2014 tying Moussa Doumbia on a four-year deal.

They only created an xG of 0.69 last week against Nantes but les Canaris have a very good defence also. Reims have been very sturdy at the back but much of this has come at the expense of their attack as they have only scored four goals this season.

It looks like a lost cause. Can Jardim so famed for sorting out Monacos defence a few seasons ago, do so again? 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. 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.

Leonardo Jardim, Thierry Henry and Leonardo Jardim have tried their hardest to keep the team ticking over on the pitch but they have ultimately failed and nothing has really changed this season. Its no secret that AS Monaco have been a mess for the last twelve months with an abundant plethora of underwhelming results reflecting the shambles that have been going on off the pitch.
