Guingamp have conceded 8 goals in the last two rounds, but believe it or not their most in-form player is keeper Lossl.
Opponents enter Guingamp’s penalty box with ease and Lossl is extremely busy each round. Defenders move in slow motion and outplaying them is an extremely easy task.
Recently keeper Lossl made some incredible saves from short distance, but it wasn’t enough and Guingamp still conceded 4 goals per round.
We must be fair and admit that they are also scoring goals, but they are using many players in the attacking phase and defenders are all alone to deal with incoming danger.
Guingamp will welcome back central midfielder Mathis after suspension.
Angers had 4 suspended players last round against Montpellier, 3 of which are key players. In these conditions it was no surprise to see Angers 3-0 down after only half an hour.
They recovered some confidence in second half but it wasn’t enough to get a point (lost 3-2).
The good news is that Angers will welcome back midfielders Saiss, Ndoye and Mangani and forward Sunu. Ndoye and Mangani are the backbone of this team and without them Angers are at Ligue2 level.
They are the ones organizing all players, both in the defensive and offensive phase.
No doubt both sides are looking forward to put an end to the bad run, but only Angers will be improved in comparison to last week. Guests can be pretty solid and compact, and it won’t be difficult for them to strike on counters against such a loose defense. ANGERS +0.25 at 2.12
UPDATE: Bad news for Guingamop as they will miss in-form winger Benezet.
