Friday night football from the Louis II stadium in Monaco. After a shaky start Monaco have started to put together some performances both domestically and in Europe. Berbatov, Mouthino though have been ruled out through injury and that will be a huge loss for Monaco Especially at home where Monaco have won three of the last four and have lost only two of the last fifteen here. While goals have no been free flowing the defence has been sterling. Monaco have only conceded two or more goals in three of their last fifteen. With Carvalhyo marshalling the back four Monaco actually dont look like conceding many, any time they play.
Reims arrive in Monaco having won two of their last four in all competitions. Unfortunately two of those wins were at home. Reims have lost nine of their last twelve away games. Goals have been a struggle for both of these teams with the top scorer on either side only registering two goals.The unders looks such a certain bet here that it almost feels like a trap. Monaco have gone under in ten of their last twelve although were involved in a 3-1 win at the weekend. Reims have gone under in five of the last seven but like Monaco were involved in an overs on Tuesday in a 2-3 loss in the Cup.

At 2/5 Monaco do not represent value especially given the injuries to Berbatov and Mouthino. Reims though have a horrible away record and it makes it almost impossible to back the away side here. While the unders looks nailed on I think the value here is the draw. Monaco are the better side but will have one eye on next weeks Champions League game. Take the draw here for value.
