Our football match prediction:
Bordeaux will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Toulouse when they take on Guingamp at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique. Les Girondins are eyeing a top-four finish, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to turn their dream into reality. Bordeaux have been impressive at the back of late and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s football match against Guingamp. Antoine Kombouare’s men recorded back-to-back wins over Strasbourg and Lille in previous two home games in the Ligue 1, but their displays on the road leave a lot to be desired and we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Stade Matmut-Atlantique Bordeaux recorded a routine 3-0 win over Guingamp and there is every chance the history is going to repeat itself this weekend.
Highlighted Player (Diego Contento):
Diego Contento is a German footballer of Italian descent. Contento, who was born in Munich on May 1, 1990, is well known for playing for Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. The pacey left-back won three Bundesliga trophies with the Allianz Arena outfit and in 2013 he lifted the Champions League trophy with FCB. Bayern Munich defeated fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the title game and that is considered the biggest success of Diego Contento’s career. After playing 49 games in the German top flight for the Bavarians, the defender moved to Bordeaux in 2014 and he has been playing for les Girondins ever since. Contento has established himself as a first-team regular at Bordeaux and he made 25 appearances for the club in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign. The former Bayern Munich footballer played for Germany at youth level and he has two caps for the U17 team, while making four appearances for the U20 squad. Diego Contento’s preferred foot is left and he wears the No 3 shirt.
Highlighted Team (Guingamp):
En Avant de Guingamp Cotes-d’Armor are a French football club based in the commune of Guingamp. Guingamp was founded back in 1912 and it has to be noted that a number of top-class footballers played for the club in the past. The likes of Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda, Fabrice Abriel and Vincent Candela all wore Guingamp’s shirt and, no doubt, the club served them as a springboard. Guingamp returned to the Ligue 1 in 2013 and they have been competing in the French elite division ever since. In 1996 the French team did well to win the Intertoto Cup and book their place in European competitions for the first time ever. However, Italian giants proved to be a big catch for the Ligue 1 club in the first round of the UEFA Cup. One year later Guingamp made it to the French Cup final, but they were more than unfortunate not to lift the trophy. After playing out a draw with Nice in the regular time, the Stade de Roudourou outfit were eventually beaten by les Aiglones on penalties.
