Reason For Guingamp VS Toulouse Betting Tips
These two sides are neck and neck in the middle of Ligue 1 and could switch places when they meet on Saturday. They are both in indifferent form and have struggled to put consecutive wins together in recent weeks. Both are practically safe from relegation but they will want to finish in the top 10 places if possible.
Guingamp had an excellent first half of the campaign and were riding high in the division until the turn of the year, when their form dropped off dramatically. Never the less they have been something of a surprise package. It is even more surprising when you consider that the team’s top scorer is Jimmy Briand, who has only 9 goals to his name in 2016/17. In fairness, hot prospect Yannis Salibur has also chipped in with 6 strikes, but Guingamp’s success has been based on defensive solidity. Their away record is desperately poor, but at home they have excelled, being victorious in 60% of matches at Stade de Roudourou after making the venue somewhat of a fortress.
Toulouse meanwhile have only notched 33 goals from their 32 matches so far. They have also relied on being sound at the back to win 10 matches. Forwards Martin Braithwaite and Swedish international Ola Toivonen have been the go-to men, forming a great partnership and chipping in with 10 and 6 goals respectively. Their away form has been terrible and they have only won 12% of games on the road.
With both sides not exactly prolific in front of goal, we expect this to be a low scoring affair. The teams’ respective home and away records suggests a Guingamp win, which we advise backing at odds of 11/10 with bet365.
For our correct score prediction, we see it being 2-1 to Guingamp, which is available at odds of 8/1 also with bet365.
