Guingamp vs Marseille Prediction & Betting tips
In the hunt for participation in the Champions League, Olympique Marseille meets En Avant Guingamp on Friday-evening. With only a game scheduled after this game, the team has to win from Marseille to keep a chance at a place in the top three.
With 46 points from 36 matches En Avant is played out for this season. On goal-difference, Antoine Kombouaré’s team is now just 11th instead of tenth, so the goal for the rest of the season will be to end up in the left-hand row. The last home game of the season seems to be an excellent opportunity, but with Olympique Marseille as an opponent it becomes difficult on paper for Kombouaré his team. Last weekend against Dijon, Guingamp had a good chance to continue the great form that was presented against PSG, but on all fronts Guingamp was trumped.
Goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson played all 36 games this season so far and also seems to play the last two games. The former goalie of NEC came last season with a red card to play 37 of the 38 league matches, something he probably knows to surpass this season. With eight goals in the last four matches, the form seems to have disappeared at Johnsson at the end of this season. Eleven times this season, Johnsson managed to keep his goal clean, and in the other 25 games he collected 54 goals, averaging 2.18 goals per game. Last season, Johnsson and Guingamp performed slightly better in terms of number of goals and number of points, but all in all it can be said that Guingamp has once again played a decent season in the middle.
With a fourth place in a top competition such as the Ligue 1 and a place in the final of the Europa League, Olympique Marseille played a nice season, but a spot in the top three or even top two would be the icing on the cake. The differences in the top of the Ligue 1 are small on the gaping gap that national champion PSG has hit with the competition, with only one point difference between the number two and number three and the number three and four. Disappointing draws against middleweight Montpellier and low flyer Angers have ensured that L’OM is dependent on the performance of competitors AS Monaco and Olympique Lyon. Only victories like last weekend against Nice can help the team from Marseille.
With next week also the Europa League final in the stadium of Lyon on the program, the question is what the current number four of France will be in the meeting with the number eleven. Two of the three league games prior to the last three matches in the Europa League were tied and only one was won. Players such as Lucas Ocampos, Konstantinos Mitroglou and Valère Germain, who normally come in the field, got a chance at the base and only managed to make a difference in the match against Lille, the rest is very dependent on Florian Thauvin.
