Guingamp vs Valenciennes Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A home win is the tip as Guingamp face Valenciennes in a French Ligue 2 clash at the Stade du Roudourou. The hosts are unbeaten in their last two league matches and tipped to secure the victory over Valenciennes who often struggle for goals on the road.

EA Guingamp Form & Team News


Guingamp were held to a 2-2 draw at Auxerre last time out in Ligue 2. They threw away a two-goal lead with first half efforts from Yeni N'Gbakoto and Lucas Deaux cancelled out by the hosts after the break.

After a difficult start to the season, Guingamp appear to be returning to their best form after going unbeaten in their last two matches. Their upturn in form has them at good value of 1.75 to secure the win against Valenciennes. 

Yeni N’Gbakoto has scored two goals already this season and should continue in attack on Monday. He is likely to be joined by Ronny Rodelin while Lucas Deaux should feature in midfield having also impressed for Guingamp this season.

Valenciennes FC Form & Team News


Valenciennes are coming off a 1-0 home victory against Rodez in their previous Ligue 2 fixture. They were made to work hard for the win with Baptiste Guillaume's effort on 50 minutes proving to be the difference. 

Olivier Guegan's men often struggle on their travels having claimed just one win in their last six away matches. They have also failed to score four times in that run and their poor form on the road has them at odds of 5.00 to win on Friday while a draw is valued at 3.40.

Valenciennes have struggled in attack this season with Baptiste Guillaume and Teddy Chevalier scoring just one goal each. Both men should continue their partnership in attack while Gauthier Hein is likely to be given a start having come off the bench against Rodez.

Guingamp vs Valenciennes Head to Head 


Valenciennes have a 2-1 edge with one draw from four previous matches against Guingamp. Monday’s hosts, however claimed a 1-0 victory in the last meeting between both teams back in 2014.

Guingamp vs Valenciennes Match Up


Yeni N’Gbakoto will be the man tasked with providing the spark in attack for Guingamp having impressed this season. He is often a threat with his pace on the right and should combine well with Ronny Rodelin to trouble the visitors.

In contrast, Valenciennes have looked off colour going forward with Baptiste Guillaume and Teddy Chevalier struggling for goals. Both men are set for a difficult time at the Stade du Roudourou.
