Coupe de la Ligue Preview: Monaco start at Reims

Claudio Ranieri's side have made an unbeaten start to their Ligue 1 campaign, extending that run with a 2-1 against Lyon on Sunday, and they will look to take that form into the cup fixture at the Stade Auguste-Delaune.

They will be keen to improve on last year's performance in the competition, when they suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Troyes in the round of 16, as they go in search of a second trophy success in the tournament, having defeated Sochaux 4-1 in the 2003 final.
