AS Monaco vs Stade Reims.
With a 2-2 draw against Troyes last time out, Philippe Clement's team's recent form has taken a turn for the worst. Monaco has now gone winless in their past three games. The home team's two-game losing streak was at least broken by the draw.
In the French premier division, Marseille has the second automatic Champions League slot, and Monaco is now in third place in the table, four points behind them.
The Red and Whites still have a respectable home record in Ligue One, but a recent 3-0 loss to Nice at home in the league broke Clement's team's four-game winning streak.
Also, in five of their prior games, they had scored at least two goals.
The visitors are only six points away from the European positions in Ligue One and are currently in eighth place in the league. The team of Will Still is now four games unbeaten and has won three of those games. Reims has preserved four straight clean sheets, which is a major factor in their recent strong run of form.
They have also kept five straight clean sheets in the French top division and are unbeaten in 15 Ligue One games.
Reims hasn't lost in their last nine away matches in France's top division, although eight of those contests ended in draws.
