Olympique Marseille – Guingamp
Olympique Marseille hosts Guingamp in a match from the 5th round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s have a look at this game, which is going to be played at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday night.
Olympique Marseille are currently 5th in the Ligue 1 standings, having 7 points and a record of two wins, one draw and one loss. Rudi Garcia’s team started its season with a win against Toulouse, which was followed by a loss against Nimes and a draw against Rennes. In the previous round, Marseille enjoyed a great win, beating Monaco with 3-2 away from home.
It was a dramatic night at the Stade Louis II in Monaco. Kostas Mitroglou, Florian Thauvin and Valere Germain scored the winners for the away team, while Yoeri Tielemans and Radamel Falcao scored for the home team. But these goals were not enough for Monaco to clinch at least a point from the game.
Guingamp, on the other hand, is currently in the last 20th place in the league standings. They are the only team without a point since the start of the season. Right now Guingamp has four defeats from four matches played. They suffered losses against Saint-Etienne, PSG, Lille and Toulouse.
In the previous round, Guingamp hosted Toulouse with the hope that they will finally win at least a point since the start of the campaign. But after just 12 minutes of playing, Toulouse already had two goals advantage, thanks to Mark Gradel and Ibrahima Sangare. Marcus Thuram scored for the home team, but his goal was not enough for Guingamp.
This is our look at the Ligue 1 clash between Olympique Marseille and Guingamp at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille. It’s clear that Marseille is the big favourite here, especially against the weakest side since the start of the season.
