Venue: Stade municipal de Roudourou

 

Team Form

Guingamp

A disappointing loss against Bastia triggered a major slip in Guingamp’s rank. The squad tries to hold unto dear life in the 16th spot of the Ligue 1 table.

 

Instead of securing a safer spot away from the relegation zone, Guingamp had to endure Bastia’s late rally, which overturned Rachid Alioui’s early goals.  The said loss was also the club’s third during the whole course of their last six (6) matches. They thrive only because of the draws that they have managed to incur.

 

In terms of their overall form, it can be easily said that Guingamp needs a major reconstruction. They have been unsuccessful during their last eight (8) matches and this may continue unless the needed actions are made.

 

Reims

Reims also slipped into the Ligue 1 table after losing to Montpellier. The match saw a scoring spree from Remy Cabella, Joris Marveaux and M’Baye Niang. Adding more damage was an own goal courtesy of Abdelhamid El Kaoutari.

 

Despite the fact that Reims is still out of the relegation zone, the recent defeat cannot be taken lightly for matches of such nature may pull Reims into the rock bottom part of the table.

 

Nevertheless, if there is anything that should give them hope, this is Reim’s strong away form. They are unbeaten in ten (10) of their last eleven (11) matches and it is very possible for them to keep such an impressive performance when they visit Guingamp.

 

Prediction: Reims

Reims need to be more careful and consistent in their succeeding matches. They cannot afford petty mistakes for these might be their dreaded Achilles heel.
