Our Prediction:

Reims will win

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

They have conceded just two goals in their five league matches including three clean sheets against last years runners up Lille, last years fifth placed Marseille and Strasbourg, the top scorers outside of the top five in 2018/19. 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.

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.

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.

As it was already said, they have started this years campaign in a terrible way, with 2 points from 5 games, which was enough for the second-worst place. In fact, they have only one point more than Dijon who is at the bottom of the table. Their best player this season is Wissam Ben Yedder, who already has 3 goals by his name. He is their vital part, and if they want something from this game, he will have to be on his level. Geubbels, Jovetic, and Subasic will not play in this game for them.

Prediction Reims - Monaco

They now host Reims hoping to show more in an attempt to build on the gap to the relegation zone, which now stands at seven points. Monaco have seen their struggles continue as they were held off by rock-bottomed Guingamp (1-1) last week and only have a last-minute equalizer from Stevan Jovetic to thank for the point earned at Stade du Roudourou.

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.

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.

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.
