Match in Focus

19:30 TODAY BT S

Guingamp v Marseille

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Abdel Barrada has averaged 3.5 shots per game, more than any other Marseille player
Expert verdict
Boss Michel couldn’t have wished for a much better start in charge of Marseille than their 6-0 hammering of Troyes but that victory shouldn’t be allowed to gloss over the club’s issues. However, three straight defeats have left hosts Guingamp low on confidence, so the best wager could be on attacking midfielder Abdel Barrada scoring first.
