Monaco – Reims : Preview & Prediction
Monaco, 5th in Ligue 1, has returned to the race for Europe. After a very complicated start to the season, which led to the dismissal of Leonardo Jardim, Monaco recovered well. His new coach, Roberto Moreno, who was Luis Enrique’s assistant in the Spanish selection, begins to graft his paw on the Monaco game. Capable of exceptional matches, like a magnificent 3-3 at the Parc des Princes, Monaco is also capable of the worst (defeat at home against Strasbourg 1-3, in Nîmes the following week on the same score). A team still inconsistent in the results which will have to stabilize to seriously place itself for Europe.
Reims has had an excellent season. Currently 8th in Ligue 1 but only 2 points from Monaco, its opponent of the day, the Rémois can believe in Europe. With a generous collective, a solid defense and a Boulaye Dia on fire in recent weeks, Reims, who will undoubtedly play in L1 next year, can dream of much more.
Monaco is undefeated in its last 4 games in L1 (3 wins, 1 draw).
The Monegasques are 6th in Ligue 1 with 8 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in 13 games.
Monaco has the 2nd best home attack in Ligue 1 with 28 goals (behind Paris and its 40 goals).
Wissam Ben Yedder is co-top scorer in L1 (with M’Bappé) with 16 goals.
Reims is 6th in Ligue 1 away with 5 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in 13 games.
The Rémois have won only one of their last 6 trips in L1.
Wissam Ben Yedder, has a very big season for his return to Ligue 1. In Spain, he has lost none of his finisher talent, quite the contrary! A little less decisive in recent weeks (2 goals in 7 games), he should find this weekend the path of the nets.
