Guingamp vs Lille Prediction & Match Preview

Guingamp vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 10 February 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou (Guingamp).

Bottom club Guingamp have a very difficult match even if they are at home when they will face Lille on Sunday.

Guingamp are 4 points from safety and with a good run could still save themselves but it looks bleak. The club have lost their last 2 games, but they are in the Coupe de la Ligue final which is the real surprise.

They have won 3 games at home this season and 2 of those have occurred in their last 5 home games. There has been some light at the end of the tunnel and after their terrible match when they lost 9-0 to PSG, they have tried not to ship so many goals, evidenced in their recent 1-0 loss to Reims.

Lille have closed the gap to PSG to 10 points, but it is a bit false as PSG still have played two games less. But Lille’s biggest concern will be the challenge of Lyon for 2nd place and they are just three points to that advantage.

Lille are in fantastic form where they have won 4 games in a row and away from home, they have also won four games in a row. They will start as odds on favourites to win this match.

Guingamp vs Lille: Head to Head

  • Lille won the reverse fixture earlier this season by 3-0.
  • Last season Guingamp beat Lille at home 1-0.
  • In the league Lille have not won here since 2015.

Guingamp vs Lille: Prediction

Lille should have enough to win this game but Guingamp will try to fight for the win or even draw. If Lille score early many more goals could follow and the worry for the home side is that Lille are in great form and scoring many goals.

We think that Lille has the quality to score a few in this game and make it very difficult for the home side who will spend most of the game chasing the ball which can become tiring. For us this is an away victory. Lille are a superb price to win the game and we should go for this.
