Nantes vs Guingamp: Preview and Predictions

Nantes vs Guingamp
Ligue 1
Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau (Nantes).

Nantes continued their dream run at the start of the new Ligue 1 season by holding a very strong Bordeaux side to a 1-1 draw last time out.

The Canaries will have another tough fixture ahead of them this weekend when they host Guingamp who have also well confounded their expectations with 13 points from the opening nine outings.


Claudio Ranieri seems ready for a new miracle after shockingly masterminding Leicester City to the 2015 /16 Premier League silverware.

Whilst repeating such a scenario in France can only be discussed in theory past PSG’s star-studded team, a top ten finish is absolutely within reach for the Italian expert.

The defensive line is what has brought to Nantes so far as they have only conceded six in nine matches.


It will be very interesting to see if one of the league’s best defensive lines will be able to stop Guingamp from netting at least a goal in their seventh straight match this Saturday.

Antoine Kombouare indeed has a respectable attacking lineup led by Jimmy Briand who has three goals to his name so far in the season.

The danger comes from behind as well as Senegal’s midfielder Mustapha Diallo needed seven games to notch three goals.

Nantes vs Guingamp: Head to head

Ranieri will rely on tradition here given that Nantes have suffered only two losses in 17 meetings with Guingamp at Stade de la Beaujoire.

The Canaries bagged as many as four in the thumping of Guingamp in mid-may this year.

Nantes vs Guingamp: Prediction

Kombouare’s men have found it tough to keep their net untouched against a tougher opposition on the road so far in the season.

Guingamp lost each of their last three away games conceding at least two goals to Nice, Lyon and Bordeaux each and we just have to see the value in the 2.10 odds offered for Nantes’ win here.

Nantes vs Guingamp: Bets

The main betting pick is Nantes to win the match at the odds of 2.10.

Emiliano Sala is the only man in the yellow shirt who scored more than once in this term of Ligue 1. You can have him to find the net against Guingamp at 2.62.
