Caen vs Guingamp Prediction and Match Preview

Caen vs Guingamp
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).

Caen will be looking for all three points when they return home to play Guingamp at the weekend.

Caen are in 15th place and have 10 points and it is clear that they have not had a positive start to the new season. They recently beat Amiens 1-0 but that is the clubs only win in their past five games and their season has already been dogged by too many draws.

Even though Caen have only won 1 game at home so far they remain unbeaten so that is something to go on and the club would love to extend that record to 5 games.

Guingamp have been the worst performing team in Ligue 1 so far this season and are bottom of the league. They have won just 1 game all season but there has been encouraging signs and they come into this game on a 3 game unbeaten streak. The team have a poor away record but again recent form is better and they have gone their last 2 games on the road unbeaten.

Caen vs Guingamp: Head to Head

  • The last 5 meetings have a 100% record for under 2.5 goals.

  • Guingamp have not beaten Caen away from home since 2015.

Caen vs Guingamp: Prediction

We are going to take the risky bet and choose the away win here. Caen simply have not been good enough and they might start as slight favourites for this game but they have played too cautiously and keep drawing games.

Guingamp found new form before the international break and if they can keep that up there is no reason why they won’t be the more attacking team and try to get all three points and leaving the bottom of the table is a great motivation for that.
