Bordeaux vs Guingamp
Coupe de la Ligue Quarter-final
Date: Wednesday, 11th January 2017
Kick off at 17:45 UK/18:45 CET
Venue: Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.
Girondins Bordeaux failed to find any consistent rhythm to their game in the current campaign and they are 10th in the Ligue 1 table. They were also seen struggling against a lower division side Clermont Foot in the Coupe de France fixture on Sunday and only managed to edge past their opponents by a narrow 1-0 margin with a late goal. Bordeaux’s current form is nothing to write about as they were only able to manage 2 wins in their last 7 matches in all competitions, drew 2 and lost 3.
Jocelyn Gourvennec, the current manager of Bordeaux spend six years at the dugout of Guingamp before making his switch this pre-season. This could play as an advantage for the home side, but Guingamp are in some fine run on their own.
Guingamp are currently unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions. Their most recent fixture was a 2-1 win against Ligue 2 side Le Havre in the Coupe de France round of 32. Away from home, they were just once in the last 7 outings, but the 6 matches end in draws at 90 minutes.
