Guingamp take on the visitors Metz at “Stade de Roudourou" in the closing round of the French Ligue 1 in the season 2016/2017. The game will be played in Guingamp on Saturday, May 20th.
Guingamp lost four out of five last encounters of the season. “Las Costarmoricains” focused on the Coup de France but they lost to Angers with 0:2 scoreline in the semi-final while in the Ligue 1 they have no tasks left, thus, they relaxed in early April. In 33 matchdays Guingamp got 47 points with 45-53 goal difference occupying the 10th place in the table and most probably this is where they will finish the season. “Las Costarmoricains” gained almost all of their points at their home field recording 36 points taken, 27 goals for and 13 goals against in 18 encounters.

Metz stayed unbeaten in their three recent clashes: vs. Nancy 2:1, vs. Lille 2:0 and vs. Toulouse 1:1. This spurt allowed “Les Messins” to get away from the relegation zone and start getting ready for the next season in the Ligue 1 as the team has 43 points gained. On the road Metz participated in 18 encounters in the Ligue 1 resulting in 15 points earned, 12 goals for and 37 goals against.
Despite all their failures during the last month, Guingamp show strong football at their home field while Metz demonstrate weak results on the road plus they lost all the motivation on the eve of the last round, having guaranteed themselves a place in the elite division next season. The Saturday game is a great chance for the hosting side to get a successful finish of the season.
Prediction for the match: Guingamp to win.
