Monaco vs Reims Betting Tips

Niko Kovac will make his return to management this weekend as his new side Monaco take on Stade de Reims in their season opener.

An uninspiring ninth-place finish in the previous campaign certainly leaves Kovac with a lot to do and he’ll be hoping to get off to a good start on Sunday.

Nevertheless, Stade de Reims will not be easy pickings for the former Bayern Munich manager. After managing a sixth-placed finish last season, the club secured themselves European football for the first time in 57 years.

Looking at pre-match odds, it is Monaco who have been priced as the favourites at 20/23. Their opponents, meanwhile, are currently available at 16/5.

Games between these two teams tend to be closely contested with three of their most recent league games all ending in draws.

Back in January, Monaco did claim a home cup win over Les Rouges et Blancs however, that was only their first win over Reims in five years.

One of the reasons why the hosts are considered favourites in this contest is down to Reims’ poor away form before the season’s suspension. In the last six away games of the Ligue Un season, David Guion’s men managed just one win.

What’s more, the Red and Whites haven’t managed to win in Monaco since 2011; back when both teams were playing in the second tier.

Bearing everything in mind, our recommendation is to back a draw at the current price of 12/5.

Those odds offer good value in what many expect to be a close contest down in the south coast.
