Guingamp: Battling for the playoffs (Recent Form: LLDWWD)
Guingamp got relegated from Ligue 1 last season, as the club started the new campaign in Ligue 2 with high goals, to attack the top positions and at minimum to be in the playoff spots. However, things are not looking that positive for the club during the whole season so far, as they are just unable to find the form and run they were supposed to show and to be among the main favorites in the season. So far in the campaign the team managed to collect thirty nine points in their opening twenty eight league games played (10-9-9), as with that they are currently sitting on eight place in the table, but being a whole eleven points even behind the top and the playoff spots, as they need some kind of miracle and amazing run in the last part of the season to be able to get to these places. They are also on a bad run in the last couple of weeks, having lost their last two league games, but in the same time it should be mentioned that both of these defeats came in their matches away from home, while right now Guingamp is on an unbeaten run of four games when it comes to their matches at home (2-2-0).
Niort: Terrible away from home (Recent Form: DLWLWL)
Niort is among the bottom sides in the ranks since the start of the season, battling for their place against the relegation and by the looks of it, this is going to be their case until the very end of the season, especially if they continue that really bad performance in their matches as visitors. So far in the season the team managed to collect twenty six points in their opening twenty eight league games played (6-8-14), being currently among the bottom three sides in the ranks. And like I said, the main reason for that is their terrible performance away from home, where Niort already lost nine of their opening fourteen visits (2-3-9), as well as collected just a point in their last five (0-1-4).
The Betting Verdict:
Guingamp is surely not having the season they expected, but still at home as of recently they are looking good and with playing against one of the worst away sides tomorrow, I expect a home victory here.
Guingamp - Niort
