Guingamp vs Le Mans
France – Ligue 2
Date: Monday, 30 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade du Roudourou (Guingamp).
The freshly booted side slumped further down the table the other week after Sochaux got the better of them with a 3-1 scoreline on the road. Guingamp were dismal, to say the least in that latter clash and finished the ninety minutes with just one measly shot on target to their name.
Their previous home fixture failed to see them come out on top as well as the hosts were forced to share the spoils with Nancy in a 1-1 draw.
Le Mans have been struggling to keep up with the pace of their counterparts and are sporting just one win from their last nine Ligue 2 matchups. The visitors have been at the losing end in their last two games in a row, and have lost by a two-goal margin or more in both of those clashes.
With a dismal away record under their belt, the chances of walking away with the three points are certainly looking bleak for Le Mans.
Guingamp vs Le Mans Head to head (h2h)
- Le Mans have not registered a win against this side in their last two games in a running.
- Their previous encounter here saw Guingamp run riot with a 6-1 scorecard.
- Six of their past eight games here have finished with both teams finding the back of the net.
- A high scoring clash featuring over 2.5 goals on the charts has occurred just once in their last four fixtures here.
Guingamp vs Le Mans Prediction
The visitors are the worst away side in the cluster and are the only team left to pick up even a single point on the road. Furthermore, Le Mans have scored just two goals from their last three outings in the league while being at the receiving end of eight in the process.
On the other hand, the hosts have lost just once at home in their respective matchups here. Taking into account that Le Mans have not been able to take down this foe in any of their last five visits to this venue either, Guingamp are sizing up as the favorites to secure the bragging rights on Monday.
Additionally, the home team have found the back of the net at least once in the opening forty-five minutes in three of their previous four games here. Also, their foes for the week have not kept a clean sheet at half time in any of their last two trips on the road.
Hence there is every reason to believe that there will be over 0.5 goals on the scorecards before the teams head for the break this week.
