Monaco vs Guingamp
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd December 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Monaco’s troubled season will continue on Saturday night as they play their last game of the year at home to Guingamp. These are the bottom two teams in Ligue 1.
Under Thierry Henry Monaco have won just 2 games and remain in 19th place 5 points ahead of Guingamp. If Monaco can win this game and Dijon and Amiens get poor results then they can finally climb out of the bottom three which would surely be a massive boost and an early Christmas present for the team.
At home Monaco have the worst record in the league where incredibly they are yet to win a game this season. They have conceded 6 goals in their last two games at home although that was to difficult opposition in PSG and Montpellier.
Guingamp look destined for Ligue 2 football next season as they are 8 points from safety. They have been poor all season and this could be a very tough game for them to end 2018. Guingamp have the worst away record in the league and they have lost their last 3 games in a row. They are shipping 2 goals per game on average on the road.

Monaco vs Guingamp: Prediction
This is a big game for Monaco because they are facing the poorest opposition in the league. They can end the year with a win and if they do so can have a spring in their step for January and move on.
Monaco need to score more goals and hopefully they can achieve this being at home against Guingamp. Lose this game and you wonder if Henry will stick around until the end of the season. But we will back the home side to get the win.
