Check if string matches with regular expression pattern in python

simple code for checking string matched with certain pattern.

import re
file3 = 'keyvalue_reference_1.json'
pattern = re.compile("keyvalue_reference_[0-9]+.json")
re = pattern.match(file3)

if re:
    print('matched')
else:
    print('non matched')


Thank you.
