Guingamp vs Dijon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 6th May 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou, Guingamp.
It’s been a bad few weeks for Guingamp who were knocked out of the Coupe de France at the semi-final stage by Angers. They also have lost two games in a row in Ligue 1 against Lille and St Etienne, scoring none and conceding five in the process.
The truth is that Guingamp in 10th place and on 44 points have let the season end early. They are not in danger and have no chance for higher places. There is zero motivation at the club.
Home form is still good with 10 wins from 17, but it may be telling that they have lost 2 games in their past five.
For Dijon the situation couldn’t be any different, a win is really needed to propel the team out of the danger zone. They are surviving at the moment only on goal difference and are still amongst the favourites to go down.
Recent form is decent as they have gone the last two games unbeaten, and even a draw here would be very welcome. However here’s the catch; Dijon have the worst away record in the league. From 17 games they have just 1 win all season and from a total points haul of 51 they have collected just 9.
Still they did get some solid draws recently over Marseille and Rennes and they will want to look upon those games as inspiration for this very tricky tie.

Guingamp vs Dijon: Prediction
The best bet here is to go for the draw at half time, the home team have a lack of motivation and Dijon will most probably play five at the back with a player in front of them. For small stakes also bet for the correct half time score at 0-0.
