Marseille vs Guingamp Prediction and Match Preview

Marseille vs Guingamp
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 16th September 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).

Marseille come into this game in 5th place after a stunning game which saw them beat Monaco near to the final whistle 3-2. This will have given the team a strong belief after a strange start to the season for Rudi Garcia’s team.

The 3-1 loss to Nimes will still be hurting but there has been encouraging signs from the teams togetherness and at home they have shown a lot of promise scoring 6 goals already against Rennes and Toulouse which involved a 4-0 victory for L’OM.

Guingamp a team that normally you could rely on to be solid in mid table are already in danger of getting caught up in a long relegation fight. They are rock bottom of the league with 0 points from 4 games.

They have scored just 3 goals and conceded 10, if they kept that up they would be over 90 goals for the season so the team have been hard at work in defence line and preparation for this game.

The tactic will be simple for Guingamp on Sunday evening and that will be to defend deep in numbers and then try to hit on the counter attack.

Marseille vs Guingamp: Prediction

Shocks do happen in football but for us this is a banker home win. The problem is that the bookmakers think too and have Marseille down at 1.30 (1/3) to win.

We will go one better and take Marseille to be leading at half time. They have a lot of swagger and confidence about them and have a pacey attack.

Guingamp simply have little confidence and need a different game to be able to try and claim some points, away to Marseille right now looks impossible for them.
