Lille vs Guingamp
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 22nd April 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille.

Losses to Nice and Rennes have left Lille in a 50-50 situation regarding their Ligue 1 status. They are on 37 points and six points safe from the bottom three and they just need one more win to feel safe. But the visit of Guingamp will be a tricky fixture.

Lille has won just 11 points from their past 10 games and this second half to the season has been a real slog for the team. In home matches, Lille along with Bastia has the worst record in the league. They haven’t won at home this year and have just 5 wins all season at home. They also have lost 4 of their past 5 matches, which is unlike Lille given that they usually have a strong home record.

Guingamp are very safe in 8th position and have had a solid season. But recent form they have shown inconsistency, and it has become very hard to predict which Guingamp side will turn up. On the road, they have been incredibly poor; with no wins in 2017 and have won just 2 games on the road all season.
