Ligue 1 action on Sunday as Reims and Monaco meet at the Stade Auguste Delaune – 1:00pm GMT.

When Monaco visit the Stade Auguste Delaune they will be sat in seventh place in the League. Reims, currently 16 will face an up-hill battle to handle the visitors.

Reims’ campaign so far has seen them accrue six points this season

It was three points secured for Reims in their last fixture, beating Tolouse FC 1-0 at Stadium de Toulouse.

Also, Reims seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with three draws in five games. Their position is sixteenth in the League and they have six points, that is, 1W, 3L and 3D having won one game, drawn three matches, and lost three games.

Reims have drawn two fixtures and lost one game of their three League matches at home this season.

Reims will have 9 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Reims are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Oscar Garcia’s selection choices significantly.

It’s 11 points so far for AS Mónaco this season, going into this match

Monaco come to this game on the back of a 2-1 home win against Lyon at Stade Louis Ii.

Also, Monaco’s League position speaks for itself, as The Monégasques continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 2nd in a row. With 11 points (3W, 2L and 2D), they are established in seventh position in the League having won three meetings, drawn two games, and lost two matches.

Monaco will travel to Reims with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two wins and one dart.

A victory for AS Mónaco would put them on 14 points.

Philippe Clement will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of one of his Monaco players.
