Our football match prediction:
Nice impressed in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign, but they have not been as successful at the start of the new season. Following a 1-0 loss to Saint-Etienne les Aiglons suffered a 2-1 defeat to Troyes on Matchday 2 and they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Mario Balotelli remains in the recovery room and that is probably the main reason why Nice struggle in front of goal. Lucien Favre’s troops are eager to get back on course and we believe that they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match against Guingamp. Antoine Kombouare’s charges kicked off the new season with a 3-1 win over Metz, but they failed to upset star-studded PSG at the weekend and, taking everything into account, the visitors would be happy with one point from the Allianz Riviera clash as well.
Highlighted Player (Sneijder):
Wesley Sneijder is a Dutch footballer who started his senior career at Ajax. The product of Ajax’s youth academy made 126 league appearances for the Amsterdam Arena outfit and in 2007 he joined Real Madrid. After failing to impress with los Blancos, Sneijder signed a deal with Serie A side Inter on 27 August, 2009. He made his Inter debut a day after he signed a deal with the Nerazzurri. The Dutch midfielder, who has netted a number of goals from free kicks, won the 2009/2010 Serie A trophy with Inter and in 2010 he clinched the Champions League trophy with the Nerazzurri. After spending four years at Inter, he joined Galatasaray in 2013 and it has to be noted that he won his second Super Lig trophy with the Turkish outfit in the 2014/2015 season. Speaking of his international career, Sneijder participated in the 2010 FIFA World Cup final with Netherlands, but Spain proved to be a big catch for the Oranje in the title game.
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.
