In Brief

Monaco lost to Reims at the weekend. Lopes stepping up training. Subasic, Jovetic headline selection problems. Aholou, Golovin and Raggi out.

Looking Back

Monaco slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Reims on Saturday evening in Thierry Henry’s fourth match in charge of the club. It was “the most worrying” to date, according to the former France forward, who watched his side turn in a limp overall display in Champagne.

Henry has failed to win any of his four matches in charge of the Monegasques, while the club as a whole is winless dating back to the opening day of the Ligue 1 season, when they won at Nantes. It is a run stretching 14 games.

Although Monaco earned a draw in Bruges last time out, they were somewhat fortunate to come away from Belgium with a split of the points, having been largely second best in that match.

Looking Ahead

The chronic injury problems that Monaco are suffering from so few signs of abating, although Radamel Falcao played for 45 minutes at the weekend, while Willem Geubbels and Rony Lopes have stepped up their training. Neither is fit to play, however.

Danijel Subasic and Stevan Jovetic are among the other first-team regulars on the sidelines, but equally there are a number of fringe players missing, too.

Jean-Eudes Aholou is missing, while Andrea Raggi drops out with back pain. Aleksandr Golovin is also missing, taking the total number of injuries in Monaco's squad to an astonishing 10 potential starters.

Djibril Sidibe is fit, which is the only good news for Henry.

Points of Interest

Monaco’s sequence of conceding a goal in each of the last 10 Ligue 1 games is their poorest run in this regard in 12 years.

In Brief

Schriejvers is expected to shake off knock. Gronenveld and Dennis continue to miss. Vossen sidelined.

Looking Back

Played away at Genk on Saturday in the league in what was a meeting between the two top sides and battled well to earn a 1:1 draw. It was a serious test of the mettle of the team and they responded well to falling behind just ten minutes in. The result keeps them within three points off the summit.

Should have beaten Monaco at home in the previous match day in the Champions League but missed chances aplenty in a game that finished 1:1 eventually. The team got their first point of the campaign but it was an opportunity missed to get the win and bolster chances of a third-place finish.

Looking Ahead

Heading to the Principality for an away game against a badly struggling Monaco side that is residing at the bottom of Ligue 1 and is beset by injuries at the moment. Ivan Leko will view the game as a decent chance to get a win and will be urging his players to grab their chances and try to get some points on board.

Siebe Schrijvers has been in excellent form lately, having scored four goals in the last three league games, but departed injured in the second half at the weekend. Yet he is named in the squad travelling to Monaco and should be fit to start. Arnaut Gronenveld and Dennis Emmanuel are again missing due to injuries. Jelle Vossen is sidelined.
