Match status: 2020/21 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 1
Kick-off:
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Monaco have undergone a tough couple of seasons, having flirted with relegation more times than one, and sacked a plethora of coaches – a sharp contrast to a side once dubbed as the next best thing in European football. 

However, with former Bayern coach, Niko Kovac now at the helm of affairs, Les Monegasques will be hoping he can utilize some of his managerial experience to steer them back into contention for the European places, and ultimately, the Ligue 1 title.

Reims, in sharp contrast to the hosts were one of the beneficiaries of the untimely close of the league season, with a fifth-place finish enough to secure them a spot in the qualifiers for the Europa League.

 And having only gained promotion back to the top flight in the 2017/18 footballing season, Reims’ meteoric rise up French football continues, and they’ll be looking to cement a place among Ligue 1’s big boys in coming seasons.

AS Monaco vs Reims Team News

Monaco endured yet another disappointing league season, with their ninth-place finish in the recently concluded French season ensuring their European hiatus will continue for at least, one more season. 

Les Monegasques’ season was characterised by a series of inconsistent displays that saw them win 11, draw 7, and lose 10 of their 28 matches before the interruption of the season. 

For all their struggles, Monaco remain a fairly decent side when playing at home, and their 8 wins in 14 home games was the eighth best record in Ligue 1 last season. One bright spot for Monaco last season was forward, Wissam Ben Yedder, who was unlucky to miss out on the top scorer award for Ligue 1.

Wissam’s 20 goals represented 45% of Monaco’s total league goals last season, but his contributions were undone by a leaky defence that saw the side end the campaign with zero goal difference.

Manager, Kovac’s work is clearly spelt out, and he knows defence is an area his team has to improve on, if they are to get anything out of this season.

Reims were one of the success stories in the French league last season, with their fifth-place finish ensuring they get a chance to compete among Europe’s big boys in the Europa league this season. 

Much of the Reds and Whites success last season is owed to their ability to cause upsets while playing away from home, with them boasting the sixth best away record in the league. And while they aren’t a high-scoring side, Reims boast the meanest defence in France, with their 21 goals conceded last season, the least among all teams in Ligue 1!

However, as Reims have shown time and again, they are a compact side, capable of causing problems for any team.
