Monaco take on the visitors Guingamp in the round 1 of Ligue 1 season 2016/17. The match will be played at Stade Luis II on Friday, August 12th.
Monaco won bronze medals in season 2015/16 in Ligue 1, gaining 65 points in 38 matches with 57-50 aggregate goal difference. The team played eight sparrings this summer, recording three wins, two draws and three defeats. However, the main achievement this summer is that Monaco have already eliminated Fenerbahce from Champions League qualification (1-2, 3-1) and now only one step away from the group stage. The team had successful transfer campaign, signing Morgan de Sanctis, Benjamin Mehdy, Kamil Glik, Djibril Sidibe and several youngsters. On the other hand, the team lost only Jeremy Toulalan. The hosts of the match should at least repeat last year success with such strengthening.

Guingamp played quite poorly last season and finished only 16th in the Ligue 1 wit 44 points and 47-56 aggregate goal difference. The team took part in six sparring matches this summer recording four wins and two defeats. The team didn’t make any notable signings this summer and didn’t sell any notable players to other teams. This is why we can expect the team to spent another season in lower part of the table.
Monaco have unquestionable advantage in the head-to-heads with Guingamp. The teams met 11 times since 2012. Six of these matches ended with Monaco wins, four matches were draws and one time Guingamp defeated today’s hosts. This is why we should expect Monaco to prevail in the match and take another win over convenient opponents.
Prediction for the match: Monaco to win.
