Guingamp vs Nantes
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 3rd March 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou (Guingamp).
Guingamp still have a chance to stay up even though they are bottom of the league and 6 points from safety. Perhaps this is what they believe given that they have gone their last 2 games undefeated after a draw against Bordeaux and win over Angers, it certainly has been encouraging signs for the club of late.
They have won 2 of their last 4 games at home which for their standards is a massive improvement and a win could actually take the club in 18th place depending on other results, they have everything to play for here.
Nantes are 10 points clear of the relegation zone and they will be safe, and they won their last game which was a 1-0 win over Bordeaux which they really needed. The clubs form has been patchy, and they have fallen to 14th place. The real concern is their away form where they have lost 4 of their last 5 games and have the 5th worst away record in the league.
Guingamp vs Nantes: Head to Head
- Earlier this season Nantes beat Guingamp in the reverse fixture 5-0.
- Nantes have scored 8 goals past Guingamp in the last 2 games.
- Guingamp have not beaten Nantes since 2016.
Guingamp vs Nantes: Prediction
The mood in the home side camp is very strong and they might take the motivation of having been beaten 5-0 earlier this season to Nantes and try and use that against them. Had this been at Nantes then this match is tricky, but Nantes have been so poor away from home and really the motivation here is for the home side to win they stand to gain much more than if Nantes win. Our bet here is to back the home side with medium stakes, they are sure to create many chances.
