Nancy v Guingamp
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 27th August
Kick Off: 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade Marcel Picot (Nancy).

As predicted by the press Nancy is indeed bottom of Ligue 1 where they have lost both of their opening two games. The worry is that they have conceded 5 goals already and they haven’t scored yet. This could prove to be a long season for the club who will need to start scoring for their confidence and will feel that points they do pick up will be achieved mostly at home.

Guingamp have got off to a super start in Ligue 1 where they have excited fans by playing attack minded football. The press have loved it and already compared their good start to Leicester City from last season such is the surprise. They drew 2-2 at tricky Monaco and followed that up with a convincing 2-1 win against Marseille. No one expected them to have four points from those two very hard games. Guingamp have scored 4 goals this season and all four have been netted by different players but it is worth keeping an eye on their player Sloan Privat.

Nancy v Guingamp: Head to Head

These two sides have only met two times in the modern era and share a win a piece. These matches don’t have any effect on this game given that the last one happened over 10 years ago and the fortunes for both clubs have changed.

Nancy v Guingamp: Prediction

Sometimes football predictions can look easy and the game makes it difficult for us. But it is very hard not to see the impressive looking Guingamp not get all three points here. The team is full of confidence, while Nancy isn’t. So it is worth the risk at decent odds to go for the away team here.
