GUINGAMP VS MONTPELLIER
KICK OFF: Saturday 6th Oct 2018 | 20:00 CET
LIGUE 1 WK9 | Stade Municipal de Roudourou
Can Guingamp break the meanest defence in Ligue 1 to record their first home win of the 2018-2019 season?
Guingamp have suffered five straight defeats this season, and it is difficult to make a case for the sealing a victory in their encounter with Montpellier based on form alone. They come into this match from two away games to Nimes and Angers, and getting a result at home in this fixture will crucial. They haven’t been that poor to be fair managing to score in each of their three home games so far.
Montpellier have fared better in recent games with three wins, two draws, and one loss. They like keeping a low-profile with 1-goal winning margins keeping it tight at the back. This side is very good at holding onto their lead, and if they go ahead in this one, it will be difficult for Guingamp.
There’s potential for Guingamp to open the scoring in this one, given their credible goal-scoring record at home. The hosts will hope to end their losing streak this season with a much-needed win over Montpellier.
