Monaco vs. Reims Match Analysis and Prediction

Monaco has been given the green light to kick start their 2020-21 Ligue 1 season against side Reims. The match schedules on Sunday at the Stadio Loius II, which kick off at 2 pm.

Monaco kickstarted their last Ligue 1 season on a low note best the postponement due to coronavirus pandemic. The side finished off the season in the 9th position. On the other hand, Reims secured a slot in the Europa League after finishing sixth in the league.

New manager Niko Kovac takes over the side with the task of improving the state of the side. The eight-time Ligue 1 champions ended their previous campaign battling mid-table woes. The side amassed 40 points from 28 matches played before the season curtailment. However, the side fell short of one point from getting into the Europa League.

The poor display saw the end of Robert Moreno’s reign at the club after being relieved of duties. This is even after suffering only one loss in their last home games in the recent season. It remains a big void for Kovac to fill.

Reims will be looking to carry forward their last impressive 2019-20 season campaign. The side managed to qualify for Europa League for the first time in 58 years. The six-time Ligue 1 champions managed to secure a four-game unbeaten streak before the season curtailment.

Kovac will be at ease since striker’s Stevan Jovetic red card will not carry forward to the new season. The 30-year-old veteran striker will be available for selection. However, Ben Yedder is likely to lead the attacking line. Axel Diassi will be looking for a first debut after a big-money move.
