Guingamp vs Montpellier Prediction and Match Preview

Guingamp vs Montpellier
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou (Guingamp).

Even though Guingamp are bottom of the league there may be reasons to be cheerful given that they finally won a game this season when they beat Angers away from home last weekend.

The win was massive for Guingamp and the hope is that they can now kick on from that but they will face a formidable opponent in Montpellier. Guingamp have lost 6 of their opening 8 games but after also drawing 0-0 away to Nimes they have gone their last 2 matches undefeated.

Montpellier have started the season in great form and are 3rd in the league having gone the last 5 games unbeaten. They have a win draw pattern which would suggest this game would end in a draw but they would love all 3 points as it is so close in the top half of the league. The club are unbeaten away from home so far after 3 games with 2 wins and their last away game ended 2-2 at Caen.

Guingamp vs Montpellier: Prediction

Guingamp have turned their form around but they are not scoring goals, however it is important to note that they have kept 2 clean sheets in a row and they have clearly been working on defence. They will make this game very hard for Montpellier but we have to respect the away team as they have been the 3rd best team in the league so far this season.

Our main bet will be to see under 2.5 goals and we will also back the correct score which will offer us decent value on the prices.
