Guingamp vs Rennes
Date: 14th October 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Roudourou.
There are only four points separating the two sides in the bottom half of the Ligue 1 standings, but Guingamp will come into the game as pretty clear favourites here given their impressive run of form at Stade du Roudourou at the start of the season.
Antoine Kombouare’s men took seven points in three matches in front of their fans after the initial defeat to PSG on the opening day.
The team conceded no more than a single goal (in a 1-1 draw with Toulouse) along the way and the defensive line is what is expected to bring them success against Rennes this Saturday.
Les Rouges et Noirs have been playing hot and cold since the start of the season. The team picked up six points in eight games, but five of them came on the road including an impressive 1-3 win from Stade Velodrome against Olympique Marseille.
However, Christian Gourcuff’s men won’t come into the clash at Roudourou in high spirits having claimed only a single point in last three matches against the likes of Nice, Saint-Etienne and Caen.
Guingamp vs Rennes: Head to head
Guingamp have been the more successful team over the history winning 13 of 28 meetings with Rennes.
The last one saw a 1-1 draw at Stade du Roudourou back in January this year.
Guingamp vs Rennes: Prediction
The hosts have been much more consistent since the start of the season and we have to take them to pick up points here at the odds of 21/20.
Since Rennes failed to find the target in two of their last three games, we see the value in backing Guingamp to keep their net untouched here at 13/8.
