Reims v Monaco Preview, Ligue 1, Sunday 29th September 2013

Reims have had an average start to their new season campaign and despite being placed in 10th position of the league table, they have yet to be beaten. However, this game on sunday night will certainly be the host’s toughest test of the season so far going up against current league leaders Monaco.

Monaco spent serious amounts of money in the transfer market during the summer and the players they brought in does seem to have paid off as the club remains unbeaten this season and already has a 2pt lead over the rest of the chasing pack, but this match will not be an easy one and it will take an excellent performance from everyone involved if they are to remain at the top come sunday night.

Reims v Monaco Match Betting Odds Market.

Reims are not given much chance of winning this game with the online bookmakers despite remaining unbeaten so far this season and having home advantage and at a current best price of 19/4 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) on offer I can certainly see plenty of punters taking a slice as it does look value.

The Draw could also see plenty of interest as with both sides unbeaten this season and Reims very much the draw specialists of the league this game could very well see both teams sharing the points come sunday night and at odds of 14/5 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) this also looks pretty decent value.

Monaco are leading the way at the top of the Ligue 1 table and with a strike partnership of Falcao and Riviere leading the attack up front they do look likely to score in this game so no real shock to see the online bookmakers making the visitors the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price of 4/6 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets, No Deposit Required for New Customers).

Reims v Monaco Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This should be a very exciting game for both fans and neutrals as each side has valid credentials of winning. Most will expect Monaco to carry on their excellent start to the season and win this game as Reims do have problems scoring goals and keeping them out the other end and with Falcao and Riviere in excellent scoring form for the visitors it does seem only a matter of time before one of these players opens the scoring.

However, Reims have certainly showed plenty of character in their matches this season and have proved a very difficult side to beat, so if they can manage to get a goal then I can easily see this game finishing all square come the full time whistle.

Plenty of betting opportunities available here and with the goal stats suggesting one or two goals to be scored betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, First Goal Time and Total Goals could be worth a closer look.
