Our football match prediction:
Guingamp play host to Lille at their Stade du Roudourou on day 6 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Guingamp failed to spoil Olympique Lyon’s party at Groupama Stadium, but they are definitely capable of beating Lille in front of home fans. Antoine Koumbare’s troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and we predict that they are going to find the net in Saturday’s football match against les Dogues. Lille played out a goalless draw with Bordeaux in their last league fixture and it has to be noted that they have recorded only one win so far this season. Algeria international Yassine Benzia has yet to open his goal-scoring account in the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign, but the opposition defenders should have him at bay. A lively contest appears on the cards and there is every chance both sides will score in the Stade du Roudourou clash.
Highlighted Player (Sloan Privat):
Born in Cayenne on July 24, 1989, Sloane Privat decided to play for the French Guiana national football team. Speaking of his club career, Privat joined Sochaux in 2017 and it hast to be noted that he made 96 appearances in the league for the French club, scoring 20 goals. The 185-cm-tall attacker then signed a deal with Belgian outfit Gent and he played for the club from 2013 to 2016. In 2016 Sloan Privat moved to Guingamp, but he scored only three goals for the Ligue 1 side in 20 league games. The French Guiana forward made two appearances for Guingamp II as well and he scored a brace in a 4-0 crushing of Change on March 3, 2017. He found his goal-scoring touch during the 2016 Caribbean Cup qualifiers as he netted three goals for French Guayana in the process. Sloan Privat’s main position is centre-forward and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Lille):
Lille have been playing an important role in French football ever since they were founded in 1944. Les Dogues won their first domestic trophy in the 1945/1946 season. Lille did well to win their second Ligue 1 title in 1954 and 57 years later they lifted their last domestic title. Les Douges finished the 2010/2011 season in top position in the standings, eight points clear of second-placed Olympique Marseille and it has to be noted that Lille attacker Moussa Sow won the Golden Boot (25 goals). Lille are one of the two teams that managed to win three consecutive Coupe de France trophies (1946, 1947, 1948), but they have yet to clinch the Coupe de la Ligue title. Les Dogues faced PSG in the 2015/2016 Coupe de la Ligue trophy, but les Parisiens proved to be a big catch for Frederic Antonetti’s team in the title game. Lille play their home matches at Stade Pierre-Mauroy and the capacity of the stadium is 50.186. The venue was opened in August, 2017 and the construction cost €282 million.
