Guingamp vs Monaco
France – Coupe de la Ligue.
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade du Roudourou (Guingamp).
This is more of a match between equals, as the bottom teams in the Ligue 1 go h2h in the Coupe de la Ligue semi-finals.
The major upset in Europe came in the last round of the French League Cup, with Guingamp sending Parisian home. That 2-1 win over the Parisians away from home is the highlight of their season so far. They have to take advantage of this opportunity to reach the cup final by beating Monaco.
In the last 9 competitive games, they won 56 and lost the remaining 3. But it is almost certain that they will be relegated from the Ligue after this season. So the League Cup and French Cup are their only hope in the remaining half of the season. But losing 3 recent home matches won’t help them in any way to achieve that.
For Monaco, the league season has been a disaster so far. They are just above their opponents for Tuesday in the league and has sacked their gaffer, Thierry Henry. Old coach Leonardo Jardim is back for the Red and Whites, to save them from relegation and to finish the season on a high.
They have 2 wins and losses each in the last 5 matches away from home. Currently, they are fresh from the defeat to Dijon in the league which saw them score nothing.
Guingamp vs Monaco: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Both teams have 2 wins each in the last 5 meetings across all venues.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 5 h2h matches.
- The hosts have won 2 and lost one of the last 5 matches against this opposition.
- In 3 previous games between them at these venues had more than 2.5 goals.
Guingamp vs Monaco: Prediction
The hosts are coming into this game, being the only side to beat PSG in the country, that too away from home. Since Monaco are adjusting to their new manager it will be hard for them to win against the hosts. Since the h2h stats are also an advantage of the home team we can bet on a home win with 1.87 odds.
In 3 recent meetings between these two teams at this ground, the final score had more than 2.5 goals in total. Both sides have been poor in defense, which is the main reason why they are at the bottom in the league table. So we can expect a high scoring game and bet on a score with over 2.5 goals with 2.38 odds.
