Our football match prediction:
The new Ligue 1 campaign has been a mixed bag for Guingamp to date. Antoine Kombouare’s men are eyeing their third consecutive win at home in the national championship, whilst they suffered a loss in each of their first three away games of the season. Guingamp head into Saturday’s football match against Toulouse following a 3-1 loss to Bordeaux, but seeing that they have been producing fine showings on home soil this season, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Toulouse failed to find the net in previous two league fixtures and we predict that they are going to extend their goal-scoring run in Ligue 1 to three matches. In last three meetings between the two sides at Stade du Roudourou Guingamp emerged triumphant and les Pitchouns are unlikely to put an end to the negative trend. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Jimmy Briand, who has netted two goals so far this term.
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.
Highlighted Team (Toulouse):
Toulouse are a professional football club that compete in Ligue 1. Les Pitchouns are well known for their purple jerseys with white stripes and it has to be noted that they used to wear red and yellow jerseys in the past. Toulouse welcome their opponents at Stadium Municipal and the capacity of the team’s home ground is 33.150. Stadium Municipal was used as a venue for the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Om 1982 the club secured promotion to the Ligue 1 for the first time ever and you should bear in mind that the likes of Jacques Santini and Daniel Jeandupeux were part of the team. A win over Napoli in the round 1 of the 1986/1987 UEFA Cup is considered one of the club’s biggest success as football legend Diego Maradona played for the Italian team back then. Aforementioned attacker Daniel Jeandupeux scored the winner for Toulouse in the penalty shoot-out. Bordeaux are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in Derby de la Garonne.
