Montpellier - Guingamp

PICK: over 2,5 @2,01 PINNACLE 5/10

Match between 13th and 10th placed team of French Ligue 1 will be played on de la Mosson on Saturday at 20:00.


Montpellier is coming to mach after being defeated in Nice. They were in front but Nice turned the result and Montpellier left the Allianz Riviera without any points. With Boudebouz, Sessegnon and Mounie, but mainly because of Boudebouz, I am not afraid about their attacking potential. They are only two points behind Guingamp, and they have good chances to jump higher today. 

Guingamp had great first part of season, but as I said many times in second part, this team will fall slowly and right that is happening. They were 5th, right now they are 5 places lower, and it can happen that after that round they will be even 2-3 places lower. Coach Kombouare will miss Marçal in defence tonight.

Both teams used to play open football. We can expect Montpellier in some kind of 4-1-3-2, with Boudebouz as free role player while Guingamp will be almost for sure in 4-3-3, with Salibur, Briand and probably Benezet instead of Coco in attack. Montpellier is among the teams, who are vulnerable on the wings, which is consequence of their offensive formation, while Guingamp, especially on side with Salibur is extremely dangerous from the wings. For me, Montpellier is favourite in this match and I think that they could win, but on the other hand I think that Guingamp won't surrender easily. With both teams loving attacking football, having lots of shots per game and having quality individuals in offence, I think that we'll see many good chances created, and goals.
