Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Stade du Roudourou pits together Guingamp and Rennes, the two teams who aim to climb to the top half of the Ligue 1 standings. Following a 3-1 loss to Bordeaux, Guingamp played out a 1-1 draw with Toulouse in their last league match and, as a result, they dropped to 11th place in the standings. Antoine Kombouare’s men are tough to beat at their Stade du Roudourou and they are eyeing their third home win of the season. Rennes sit in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Guingamp and it has to be noted that they have recorded only one win in the French top flight to date. Les Rouges et Noirs outclassed star-studded Olympique Marseille at Stade Velodrome last month, but they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and that is the main reason why home win should be considered.
