Guingamp host Olympique Marseille in this penultimate game of the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign. Marseille, on 73pts (W21, D10 L5), can still qualify for the Champions League (CL) through the league as they sit just two points adrift of Monaco and Lyon in second and third, respectively.
The hosts, on 46pts (W12, D10, L14), are unbeaten in five of their last six league games (W3, D2, L1) and came agonisingly close to pulling off a creditable victory over champions PSG two weeks ago, only to throw away a two-goal lead and draw 2-2. They come into this one on the back of a 3-1 loss to Dijon but will be looking for their fourth successive win at home at the Stade du Roudourou.
Europa League finalists Marseille know how daunting a task it could be to beat Atletico Madrid for the title (and an automatic CL place), so must look to end the L1 season strongly and try to finish in the top three. Rudi García’s men are unbeaten in the league since losing to rivals Lyon in mid-March (W4, D2), winning their last four on the road.
The reverse fixture earlier in the season ended 1-0 to Marseille and five of the last six H2H meetings have seen the home side on the day triumph in each case (one draw).
Players to watchJimmy Briand has scored ten league goals for Guingamp this season, with four of those coming in his last five outings.
With 20 goals from his last 33 games, Florian Thauvin is L1’s second most-deadliest marksman. He has scored four times in his last four outings in the division.
Stat attack: There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Guingamp’s last six games while they have scored at least twice in their last five matches at the Stade du Roudourou.
Marseille’s last 12 L1 away games have all produced over 1.5 goals, the last four have seen both teams score.
