Montpellier vs Guingamp Prediction & Match Preview

Montpellier vs Guingamp
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 3rd April 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).

Guingamp is in a tight race with Dijon to hold the title of being the worst team in the league. At the 19th spot in the table, in a competition that involves 20, Guingamp has conceded the most goals, and scored the least, and enjoys a superior position to that of Dijon, only due to a surplus of a single point.

Montpellier will take this opportunity to halt, at least temporarily, their bad run in the league. Despite their much higher standing in the tournament, they have returned just a single win these last five match-days. They will definitely count on their home advantage this Wednesday, and in spite of taking on a relegation-battler, will not take their opponents lightly.

Montpellier vs Guingamp Prediction

Guingamp is easily the worst team in the league, bar Dijon. Even then, goal-stats boldly paint a picture that the former is, in fact, the weakest in the competition. They remain the only team to concede more than 50 goals, and also the only side to yet scoring 20. They are winless in their last five away ties and avoided a win in 11 of their last 13 fixtures.

Going on, the last Montpellier lost against this team was back in 2006. Even better, Montpellier has never tasted defeat at the hands of Guingamp, at home.

In addition, Montpellier was unbeaten in eight of their last eleven games, and in eleven of their last fourteen home ties. They have also found the back of the net in eight of their last nine match-ups, and in 14 of their last 17 at home. And finally, they netted goals in their last five h2h ties at home.

Guingamp, who is almost sure to get relegated this season, possesses not much will to fight on and will be on the back-foot right from the beginning. Expect a dominating show by the hosts this Wednesday.
