Guingamp

  • Find themselves in 17th place and still in a lot of trouble
  • Morgan Poaty (LB) & El Hadji Ba (CM) are new injuries

Conclusion & Betting analysis

Frederic Brompard is in interim charge of Guingamp until the end of the season and everyone is waiting for this talented squad to wake up. But there’s no real sign of it happening!  Auxerre are an excellent home team and really should have too much for their opponents here. Even if Guingamp were in better form then I would fancy Auxerre to win the match. One point of caution is that they lost the reverse fixture 0-2 but road form has been their achilles heel all year. Auxerre can be backed on a -0.5 Asian Handicap around the 1.90 mark and this seems perfectly acceptable. Until Guingamp show something else then keep backing against them might be wise.

Prediction: 2-0

Recommended bet: Auxerre -0.5 Asian Handicap @1.93
