Match Preview
Both teams are fighting in the middle of the Ligue 1 (L1) standings going into this round 29 encounter, with just four points separating them.
In eight previous meetings at the Stade de Roudourou, Guingamp have returned a poor record of W1, D2, L5 against Nice. Overall, Nice have been dominant in all league encounters recently, winning their four league games against their hosts.
After three straight draws in L1, Guingamp lost 3-0 to Angers last weekend. Following this heavy defeat, Antoine Kombouaré’s men have slowly slipped to 12th place in the table and are desperately looking for a win to lift their spirits.
After a winless run of seven matches in all competitions (D2, L5), Nice finally found their way to success beating Lille 2-1 at home last weekend. Still chasing Rennes’ fifth place, Lucien Favre and his team occupy the eighth place in the L1 standings.
Guingamp are on a run four straight home L1 matches without a win (W0, D2, L2). Failure to win this match could result in them falling to the bottom of the five-game home form league.
Players to watch: Guingamp’s top scorer so far is Jimmy Briand with six goals in the league. However, he has not scored in his last eight L1 matches.
Briand will go head-to-head with Nice’s star striker Mario Balotelli who has 14 goals in L1. He is in fine form at present, scoring three of Nice’s last five goals in all competitions.
Stat attack: Encouragingly for Guingamp, Nice have failed win to any of their last seven away clashes in all competitions (W0, D3, L4).
They have, however, been winning at both half time and full time in their last four matches against Guingamp in all competitions.
