Guingamp vs Caen
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 4th May 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou (Guingamp)
This is one of the biggest games in Ligue 1 this weekend as we will see the bottom club Guingamp take on 18th placed Caen.
The reason it is so important is that even though Guingamp look destined to go down on 24 points, if they can finish 18th they could be saved in the play off. They are 5 points from that target, but if they lose this game then surely the club will not be able to recover and would go down.
Form is not good and they come into this game with back back losses. Also being at home is not a great advantage for Guingamp although they have lost just 1 game here in their past five, they keep drawing and they have lost 55% of their games here.
Caen are believing they can escape from the bottom three. Form has picked up and they have won back to back games coming into this match. Still they are 4 points behind 17th place.
Caen have lost 8 games away from home but then again recent form is good and they have won 2 from their last 3 games on the road. They also have to be careful of 19th positioned Dijon who could take their play off place and are just one point behind them.
Guingamp vs Caen: Head to Head
The last 3 meetings have all ended with the same scoreline of 0-0.
The last 6 meetings have a 100% record for under 2.5 goals.
Guingamp have not beaten Caen when at home since 2014.
Guingamp vs Caen: Prediction
A very nervous game for both sides may play out like a cup final game but with no spectacular moments. History says few goals here and we have to go with that with so much on the line.
So our main bet is easy and that will be to see under 2.5 goals, we will also back more goals in the 2nd half of the game, surely we will not see a 4th game in a row that ends with zero goals.
