Guingamp Prediction

Although they’ve won four of their last five matches in all competitions, Guingamp still sit bottom of Ligue 1 seven points adrift of safety ahead of this important clash with Rennes on Wednesday night.

Guingamp’s recent successes though have been mainly limited to cup competitions where they’ve recorded wins over Nice (on penalties) and PSG in the Coupe de la Ligue and a 4-2 win away at Stade Pontivy in the Coupe de France – only one league win has been recorded in recent times and that was a 2-0 win away at struggling Monaco.

Flip now to Ligue 1 and you’ll see that that result at Monaco has been their only success in their last 11 matches overall in the league, which is why they duly sit bottom of the pile in the domestic top flight.

Guingamp’s home record stands at a poor 0-3-6 8/17 as they still await their first home win of this campaign, and they’ve lost three of their last four at home.


Key-Facts – Guingamp v Rennes

  • Guingamp have lost 3 of their last 4 at home
  • Guingamp have conceded 2 goals or more in 5 of their 9 home matches
  • Rennes have won their last 4 matches on the trot in Ligue 1


Rennes Prediction

Rennes occupy a much more respectable and creditable position in Ligue 1 as they sit in 7th place and just four points adrift of 4th placed Saint-Etienne and the Europa League qualifier spot ahead of their trip to Guingamp on Wednesday night.

After enduring what was a tricky period of their league campaign during mid-September through to early December which yielded just two league wins for Rennes (both away wins at Monaco and Caen respectively), Rennes have hit a purple patch in recent times.

They’ve racked up four wins on the trot over Lyon, Dijon, Nimes and Nantes which has lifted them up into 7th spot, and they’ll go in search of a fifth league win on the bounce here, with a reasonable away record of 4-3-3 15/14 behind them.

Betting Tips Verdict

Guingamp continue to struggle at the foot of Ligue 1 while Rennes are firing on all cylinders at the moment. The draw no bet option on the visitors appeals here.
