Guingamp vs Nimes Prediction & Match Preview

Guingamp vs Nimes
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou (Guingamp)

Guingamp are bottom of the league but only officially got relegated last weekend as they mathematically could not stay up following a 1-1 draw at Rennes.

By their standards the club had found some form drawing 3 of their last 5 games but in the end after losing 20 games it was normal that they would be playing Ligue 2 football next season. Guingamp’s home form has improved lately and they have lost just 1 game in the past six and that was against Marseille.

Guingamp’s last home game ended in a 0-0 result against fellow strugglers Caen.

Nimes are 8th and in good form having won 3 of their last four games. The club could finish in 7th but could aim as high as 6th which would be a remarkable for the season for the club that only came up this season.

Nimes won their last away game 3-0 against Reims but in fact their away form is generally poor and before that game they had lost their last 4 in a row and have lost 10 from 18 this season.

Guingamp vs Nimes: Head to Head
