Guingamp - Monaco

PICK: Monaco AH -0,5 @1,806 PINNACLE 5/10

Match between 9th and 1st placed team in French Ligue 1 will be played on Roudourou in Guingamp and will start at 17:00.


Guingamp is coming to match after losing match in Bordeaux 3-0, and with some injury concerns. Even though Briand is back after suspension, they have concerns in defence, as right full back Pereira is off due to red card against Bordeaux, while central defender Sankoh picked up an injury in the same match, and he won't be available for Kombouare today. Left full back Marçal is in the squad, but is also not fully fit, and it will be decision of the coach if he will start or not. 

Monaco is coming to match after big disappointment in Champions league, where they had 2-3 lead and lost 5-3 at the end. We'll see today what will be the reaction of players, but in interviews all of them are somehow positive, thinking about the league right now and as Sidibe said, they want to achieve something big in this season. It's a question if club will be able to hold all those amazing players who are somehow sitting on top of the big clubs radar, and they won't take the league this season,.. it will be much harder to do it on next year. Jardim said that there will be 2-3 rotations, but two will be because of suspensions (Mendi, Raggi) which means that Toure and Emerson are coming into the team, while third player will probably be Bakayoko, which means that we'll see Moutinho or N'Doram in first lineup. Players are satisfied with coaching staff, they believe to their decisions and I am not worried about not motivated Monaco today.

Guingamp won against Lyon, Marseille, PSG, but I think that they won't be able to beat this Monaco. They are simply too strong. Attack of Guingamp with Salibur and Briand is strong, but if Guingamp will decide to go out and attack Monaco, then they will concede 2-3 goals in a bit. On the other hand, PSG is facing tough Marseille tomorrow evening, which means that Monaco can expand distance between them, while they should also not forget about Nice, who won yesterday and has same amount of point like them right now. They dropped point in Bastia, they were unlucky in the game and I believe that things will come around for them.

FT: 1-2
