It's a clash of the early season basement boys in Ligue 1 this weekend as rock bottom Guingamp play host to second bottom Bordeaux.

Guingamp have lost all five games this season, and whilst they haven't had the easiest of starts having played PSG and Marseille already, they will be disappointed to have also lost to Toulouse, Lille and Saint - Etienne.

The only real high point of Bordeaux's season to date has been a 2-1 success over Monaco at home. A 3-3 draw at home to Nimes last time out though was at least fairly positive from an attacking point of view. Coming up against a side who have been shipping goals of late, they will be confident of at least getting on the score sheet in this one.

Guingamp won this fixture 2-1 last season with Bordeaux coming out on top 3-1 in the reverse fixture.

Ronny Rodelin misses out for the home side. Bordeaux look to have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Bordeaux have at least showed flashes of something at times during their games so far this season, whereas Guingamp have been woeful. This likely won't be the easiest game on the eye from this week's slate of fixtures but we fancy the away side may just have enough to come away with all three points.

Prediction: Guingamp 1 - 2 Bordeaux


Half time: 0 - 0
Full time: 1 - 3
Shots:  12 - 9
Shots on target: 5 - 5
Corner Kicks: 6 - 4
Possession: 51% - 49%

Lebogang Phiri was booked for the home side with referee Frank Schneider also taking the names of Younousse Sankhare, Lukas Lerager, Youssouf Sabaly and Pablo Castro of Bordeaux.

Ahead on possession and in the total shots count, Guingamp's lack of proficiency in the final third ultimately came back to haunt them as they were comfortably seen off by Bordeaux in this battle of the bottom two.

Guingamp went closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half. Bordeaux trying to be a little too clever when playing the ball out of defence and losing the ball to Nolan Roux just outside the box. Snap effort from Roux attempting to lob the keeper who was off his line but unluckily seeing his effort come back off the bar. 0-0 at the break.

Bordeaux struck eight minutes into the second half. Francois Kamano picking the ball up on the right and cutting inside just outside the box before firing an effort into the top right corner. Great strike.

Guingamp were back on level terms in the 70th minute. There didn't look to be that much contact in the area but the referee saw enough of a push to point to the spot. Marcus Thuram stepping up to finish into the top left.

Ten minutes later Bordeaux were back in front. A ball over the defence finding Yann Karamoh. Good control around the keeper and finish from a tight angle from Karamoh.

Then in the 90th minute a long punt forward from Jules Kounde caught the Guingamp defence napping and leaving Nicolas De Preville all alone with the keeper. De Preville finishing into the bottom left corner. 1-3 final score.
