Guingamp vs PSG prediction

After playing out a 2-2 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League in midweek, PSG will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they take on Guingamp at Stade du Roudourou on day 33 of the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign.

A win for the survival

Following back-to-back wins over Saint-Etienne and Reims, Guingamp played out a 2-2 draw with Montpellier in their last league game. Jocelyn Gourvennec’s troops are sitting in 15th place in the Ligue 1 standings and they are on the right track to secure yet another elite division survival. Guingamp are ten points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that a win over star-studded PSG would see them move one step closer to meeting the goal. Nonetheless, the bottom-table side often struggle when facing top-table teams and it has to be noted that they were hammered by Olympique Lyon (1-5) last month. The hosts will be more than happy with one point from Saturday’s encounter and they are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the game against the reigning champions. It has to be noted, though, that Guingamp conceded nine goals in previous two meetings with PSG.

Nicolas Benezet and Dorian Leveque are both out of contention through injury, while the likes of Yannis Salibur, Lionel Mathis and Benjamin Angoua are all rated doubtful. Jimmy Briand should keep his place up front.

Little to play for

Paris Saint-Germain were very busy in midweek, with the team facing Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals, first leg. Les Parisiens played out a 2-2 draw with the Premier League side, meaning that they have slim chances of qualifying for the Champions League semis. Laurent Blanc’s team, on the other hand, have already clinched the Ligue 1 trophy, meaning that they will have little to play for in the remainder of the season. Blanc fielded the best possible side against Nice at the weekend, but seeing that the capital club will face Man City in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, I would not be surprised if the French tactician decides to rest his first-team regulars this time out. Lucas Moura is likely to return to the starting line-up and he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back line. You should know that PSG are eyeing their 14th away win of the season.

Marco Verratti and Javier Pastore both missed the Champions League clash with injury and the duo is unlikely to recover in time to face Guingamp. Centre back David Luiz is unlikely to be risked. Blaise Matuidi will miss the Champions League game through suspension, meaning that should start against Guingamp

Quick Facts

  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in five of Guingamp’s last seven league matches
  • Guingamp failed to score in previous two meetings with PSG
  • Paris Saint-Germain are after their fourth consecutive win on the road
  • Les Parisiens scored 15 goals in last four away matches
  • PSG netted nine goals in last two meetings with Guingamp

Guingamp vs PSG betting tip

Paris Saint-Germain failed to impress in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City and they certainly want to make amends for the poor performance. However, coach Laurent Blanc is likely to mix the squad this time out and I do not believe that away win should be considered. Guingamp aim to escape the danger zone and they are definitely capable of upsetting the title holders.

Tip: Guingamp not to lose
