France Ligue 2 – Guingamp v Sochaux Preview (31/10/20)

Match Preview

Guingamp are an interesting case under new coach Mecha Bazdarevic. They have won 3 and lost 3 under his stewardship and seem to be inconsistent between performances. I suspect we shall see them rebound today but I don’t think I could be trusting them around the 2.0 mark to win. Sochaux finally lost for the first time this season on Monday night - but it was a couple of late goals that did for them vs Amiens (0-2). This is a tricky side to face and they can be hard to break down. One thing that Bazdarevic has brought to Guingamp matches are low scoring encounters. They’ve now had 5 straight unders in matches where only one team has scored. Something like a 0-0 can’t actually be ruled out and whilst I’d say a 1-0 or 2-0 home victory is more likely this doesn’t feel like the sort of match to get involved in.

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended bet: None
