Lyon vs Guingamp : Preview and Prediction Match Previews French Ligue 1 Saturday, 22nd October 2016

Lyon vs Guingamp
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 22nd October 2016
Kick-Off at 16:00 BST
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

We can now have confidence in Lyon only at home as their away record is terrible. However at Parc Olympique Lyonnais the club who have been very inconsistent this season has been very solid in front of their home fans with just one loss from 4 games.

After beating St Etienne here 2-0 in a professional manner they lost away too Nice by the same score. Now they have the chance to make great amends however Guingamp have shown many qualities this season.

Lyon come into this match after losing at home 1-0 to Juventus in the Champions League after a superb goal keeping display by Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon. Lyon will hold their heads up though and be very prepared for this visit.

Guingamp beat Lille 1-0 last week and that stopped some poor form to move back into 5th place on 14 points. They face an uphill task to get the win here but if they could they have a chance to move into the top 4.

The problem for Guingamp has been their away form as they earned a meagre 4 points from a total of 14 in the league so far this season. They have only beaten Nancy away by 2-0 and has lost 3 straight games on the bounce.

Head To Head
Lyon have won the last five meetings between the sides.
