 Guingamp's fate looks all bit sealed now. Rock bottom and eight points adrift of safety with only three games left to play - a miracle is needed. Step one in that miracle is to beat 13th placed Rennes on the road in their Match Day 36 fixture.


Rennes league form has tailed off considerably of late, but they do already have Europa League football to look forward to next season following that famous success over PSG in the French Cup Final.


Guingamp have actually held the edge in this fixture of late, picking up the points with a 1-0 win in this game last season, and coming out on top 2-1 in the reverse game in the current campaign.


Romain Danzé and Benjamn André are out injured for the home side. Mehdi Merghem misses out through suspension for Guingamp.


As much as Rennes form has dipped overall, they have at least remained a pretty tough proposition here in front of their own fans with just the one defeat in their past ten league games here, keeping a clean sheet in six of those.


Guingamp have won only two of 17 on the road, failing to score in five of their last seven and conceding three times in each of their last two.


All things come to an end and this looks like officially being the end of the road for Guingamp who just don't look to have enough in the final third t trouble Rennes.



Prediction: Rennes 2 - 1 Guingamp
