Guingamp vs Niort
Coupe de France
Date: Saturday, 6th January 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Roudourou (Guingamp).
Guingamp will be the hot favourites to dispatch of Ligue 2 side Niort as the two teams come head to head in the round of 64 in the Coupe de France.
Not only are Guingamp the superior side but they are at home and their fans will expect nothing less than a solid victory. The club have risen to 8th place and before Christmas had had a very good spell in the league with no losses in their past five games. At home they have just 1 loss and on home form alone would actually be 4th in the league.
The task for Niort then is huge, they come into this game having lost their last two league games. In Ligue 2 they are currently in 11th position, one positive is that the club do score goals, they have 24 this season which given they are mid table is quite respectable. They have lost 3 of their last 4 away games, but they rarely get beaten heavily and will want to give 100% against Guingamp.

Guingamp vs Niort: Prediction
We expect to see a very entertaining game with goals, this is because Niort are not the type of side just to play negative and defend. They are not afraid to attack and this is good news for anyone betting on this match and looking for value.
At the same time the home side will be forced to respond, this is a game where tactics will go out of the window very soon after the first whistle goes and we will see lots of space on the pitch.
