France Ligue 1 – Monaco v Guingamp Preview (4/11/17)

Match Preview

It’s a shame that both teams miss some decent attacking talent here, otherwise it literally could've been full of goals. Monaco are renowned for dealing with injuries well, but some of the men they miss here are crucial. Thomas Lemar especially is a massive player for them in the final third, and Falcao’s goalscoring record speaks for itself. I still think Monaco will probably find a way to win this match, it’s amazing how often they manage it with a depleted squad. Guingamp are no mugs though and I expect they’ll stay in the game right until the end. If both teams were at full strength I’d certainly have been interested in backing over 3 goals, and maybe even Monaco on a handicap, However, due to the absences involved I'm going to have to refrain in this instance.

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet: None
