Guingamp vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Roudourou (Guingamp).
Both Guingamp and Amiens are struggling badly coming into weekend’s Ligue 1 clash at Stade de Roudourou. The hosts are in a tougher position as they sit at the very foot of the league ladder with just 8 points from 16 rounds so far. Amiens are second from bottom with a five-point edge on Guingamp.
Las Costarmoricains are on a dreadful streak of four defeats in last five matches in the league. They ended the three-loss thread last weekend by holding Nice to a goalless draw on the home patch. However, the team quickly returned to the old habits on Wednesday when they fell 2-1 away at Dijon. It seemed Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men were just about to snatch a point when midfielder Marcus Coco notched the equalizer 11 minutes from time at Stade Gaston-Gerard. Guingamp also had an extra man on the pitch as Dijon’s defender Wesley Lautoa was sent off at the 72nd minute. However, it all fell apart four minutes from time when Oussama Haddadi bagged the match-winner for Dijon.
Guingamp vs Amiens: Head-to-head
Amiens have a positive head to head record with 9 wins, 8 draws and only 4 defeats in 21 affairs with Las Costarmoricians.
Teams have three wins apiece in 10 H2H games at Stade du Roudourou.
Les Licornes are undefeated din last ten head to head encounters with Guingamp.
Each of past three H2H outings saw goals scored at both ends.
Guingamp vs Amiens: Prediction
Unlike Guingamp who only won 1 of 16 games so far in the season, Les Licornes managed to pick up four victories. However, they have really been struggling on travels ever since the start of campaign losing six, drawing one and winning one of eight in this term of Ligue 1.
Chris Galtier’s troops were particularly easy to break down in most recent outings as they allowed eight goals in three subsequent defeats to Marseille, Nimes and Monaco. They haven’t done much better at the opposite end netting just two goals in last five league affairs.
Stakes are sky-high and we expect a huge battle at the center of the park with very few goal-scoring chances at both ends. Neither of two managers will take unnecessary risks in the first half which is why we will back no goals in opening 45 minutes at 2.50 odds.
