Our football match prediction:
Guingamp will be aiming to bounce back from a heavy 6-0 loss to Monaco when they take on Angers at their Stade du Roudourou. Antoine Kombouare’s troops experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the defeat to the title holders and they are on a four-game winless run in all competitions ahead of Saturday’s football match. Guingamp aim to move away from the danger zone and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from the match against Angers, who were hammered by PSG on Matchday 12. Seeing that only one point separates the two sides in the Ligue 1 standings, a close encounter appears on the horizon and we predict that the two teams will play out a draw in Guingamp. Angers are undefeated on the road this season and, taking everything into account, home win should not be considered.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Deaux):
Born in Reims, France on December 26, 1998 Lucas Deaux started his career at Reims. The right-footed midfielder scored seven goals in 117 appearances in the league for the Stade Auguste Delaune outfit and he moved to Nantes in the 2012 summer transfer window. Deaux quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the club and you should bear in mind that he played no less than 119 league matches for les Canaris from 2012 to 2015. In 2016 he moved to Belgium, signing a deal with Gent, but he made only five appearances for de Buffalo’s in the Belgian top flight. Lucas Deaux soon returned to France as he signed a three-year-deal with Guingamp on July 1, 2016. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as a centre-back as well if needed. His preferred foot is right and the 188-cm-tall footballer is very good in the air. Lucas Deaux scored two goals, while providing five assists for his teammates in 38 appearances for Guingamp in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign.
