Nice vs Guingamp
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th April 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riveria (Nice)
There was a lot of disappointment for Nice last weekend when at home they lost to Caen despite dominating the game and that defeat has all but ended the teams hopes of a European finish.
In general Nice have been in great form with 3 wins from their last 4 games and goalkeeper Walter Benitez has proven to be one of the best prospects in the league. It has been a successful season for Nice even if they don’t get a Europa League spot and they have had many bright moments. They should be able to pick up a win here against the bottom side.
Guingamp are 20th but they still have something to play for which is to try and finish 18th and force the play-off. They are only 4 points behind Dijon but the problem of course is that they have Caen in between them which makes their task even more trickier.
Guingamp’s form has been better, claiming 2 draws and a win in their last five games but they are still a team who are going to struggle against quality. They lost 3-1 against Marseille last weekend and away from home they have the worst record in the league where from a possible 48 points they have won just 10.
Nice vs Guingamp: Head to Head
In the league this season these two teams have already drawn 0-0.
Last season Nice won this fixture 2-0.
Guingamp have not beaten Nice since 2015.
Nice vs Guingamp: Prediction
We can’t see Nice losing back to back games at home at this stage in the season and the players should be relishing having the chance to make up last weekend’s defeat and get it right here.
We think Nice have the quality to get a solid and decent result and will back them to win this match at half time and full time. For smaller stakes we will be backing the correct score at the final whistle.
Guingamp might end up getting boxed into their own half very quickly and this could end up being an energy zapping game for them. The key for Nice will be to score early.
