Guingamp vs Troyes Prediction
Guingamp put a halt to their three-match winless streak in the second division by pulling off an emphatic 3-0 win over Paris FC last week. The hosts have now admitted defeat just thrice in their last ten games in all competitions as well, and are currently placed eighth in the league, eight points behind their foes for the weekend Troyes.
On the other hand, the visitors have been recording back to back wins in Ligue 2. Their previous matchup at home saw them edge past Rodez with a 1-0 scoreline. While on the road, they posted a 1-0 victory over Sochaux.
Be that as it may, Troyes have not fared well in their previous visits to this venue. They have not secured the bragging rights in any of their past five trips here, and have been at the losing end thrice in the process as well.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have dropped points thrice in their outings already. Meanwhile, Guingamp are unbeaten in their last two games here and have stumbled just once in their previous six.
As such, given the home advantage at hand, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Guingamp in this one.
However, half of their last four meetings with this foe here have witnessed both teams sharing the spoils. Taking into account that the hosts have also salvaged just a point in four of their past nine fixtures at home, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.
Furthermore, surprisingly, Troyes have been at their defensive best on the road this term. They have conceded just three goals so far in their outings, which is the least by any side in the cluster.
In addition, six of the last nine h2h clashes at Stade du Roudourou have been low scoring affairs with fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. Hence, goals are likely to be hard to come by this week.
