Guingamp vs Paris SG Prediction & Betting tips
After the defeat in the season-opener against AS Saint-Étienne, En Avant Guingamp gets the chance this season to win the first points of the season. Little extra: the opponent listens to the name Paris Saint-Germain.
Antoine Kombouaré’s team remained unbeaten throughout the entire preparation, but as is often the case in football, that is no guarantee for results. In the first half hour against AS Saint-Étienne En Avant had nothing to say. After being trailing 1-0 in the first half, the men of Kombouaré proved to be resilient as often. Marcus Coco was shot down in the box after having broken through, after which Marcus Thuram equalized the score from eleven meters. A second big chance was not spent on Thuram, so the team finally went scoreless from Saint-Étienne.
Striking player on the side of En Avant was the aforementioned Thuram. The son of Lilian Thuram excelled on the left with no less than four shots on goal. Last season, the 21-year-old Frenchman reached only three goals in 32 matches, so this season the counter is already one and if he can show this level more often, he can just go to the ten goals this season.
With a 3-0 win in the first game of the season, Thomas Tuchel remained unbeaten in his first official match as PSG’s head coach. Gianluigi Buffon also had a good debut with the Parisians; not only was the game won, Buffon also managed to keep his goal clean. Besides the debut of these two men at PSG there was another reason to celebrate a party for the spectators in the Parc des Princes: after a long injury Neymar finally made his return to the Ligue 1. And how could you better do with a goal.
The victory of the Parisians was one as we have seen so often last season. A huge field superiority of the wealthy club led to twice as many goal attempts as the opponent, but the biggest difference was in the quality of the goal attempts. No less than eight of the eleven goal attempts were really a shot at goal. To still place a critical note: eighty percent of the passes of the opponent actually arrived (compared to about ninety percent of the passes of PSG), so there is still much more effective hunt on the ball.
