If you analyze the statistics of the latest matches between Reims and Monaco, several details become obvious. Both teams have been showing decent levels of play lately and have been in similar form in their last seven matches. Reims have an advantage playing at home given their past victories at home, and the recent 2-0 win over Lyon further reinforces this observation. However, Monaco's form is slightly better: more goals scored and fewer matches lost.
On the other hand, Monaco have a powerful attack, scoring 18 times in the last 7 matches, averaging 2.57 goals per game. While Reims average 1.86 goals per game, their defense is somewhat tighter, conceding fewer goals than Monaco.
A closer look at additional statistics allows you to understand the essence of the game. Reims, despite its decent form, has generally outplayed its opponents in many recent matches. This can be alarming when meeting an aggressive Monaco. However, Reims' ability to convert fewer shots into goals, combined with Monaco's penchant for leaving defenses exposed, evens things out.
As for the previous meetings of these teams, the situation here is ambiguous. While Monaco dominated on several occasions, Reims managed a couple of wins, with the latest coming at Monaco's home ground.
Both Reims and Monaco have demonstrated formidable attacking capabilities in recent matches. Monaco, averaging 2.57 goals per game in their last 7 matches, are strong contenders to score at least one goal against their opponents. On the other hand, Reims, with an average of 1.86 goals scored, may not compare to Monaco in terms of scoring, but they are able to find scoring opportunities, especially on their own pitch. Considering previous meetings, both teams managed to score against each other, which makes this a low-risk bet.
Corners often give an indication of a team's attacking intentions. Considering that Reims take an average of 5.3 corners and Monaco slightly more - 5.7 corners per game, we can assume that the match will feature a large number of corners. The pressing and attacking style of both teams, constantly trying to get the ball into the final third of the opponent's field, inevitably leads to corner situations. Recent statistics strongly support this bet, showing that corners occur frequently in confrontations of this nature.
Given the higher odds and detailed statistics confirming the likelihood of events, the best bet would be Total Corners: Over 8.5 with odds of 1.55 is the best bet. It offers an excellent balance of risk and reward as the attacking nature of both teams provides a good basis for this bet.
