Guingamp v Marseille Preview, Ligue 1, Sunday 11th August 2013

Guingamp were recently promoted after nearly 10 years away from the top flight back in 2004 and are one of the favourites to go straight back down again unless they can manage to get some well earned points to beat the drop. Guingamp coach Jocelyn Gourvennec has been with the club since July 2010 and did well to take his side up the table of Ligue 2 and come runner-up which secured their return to the big league.

Marseille kick off their Lique 1 campaign on Sunday against newly promoted Guingamp who haven’t set foot into Lique 1 for nearly 10 years. But considering Marseille haven’t had the best start with only winning 1 of their 5 club friendlies you could see the new boys going out to prove a point in regards to staying in this league. A lot of talk this year in regards to controversial midfielder Joey Barton’s return after speculation that he could be joining Martinez at Everton, in which Barton has since denied and that he would prefer a return to the French side.

Guingamp v Marseille Team News

Guingamp Team News:

Jocelyn Gourvennec has been busy making the most of his lack of transfer funds signing only 1 player which cost anything only spending 600 thousand on Younousse Sankhare from Dijon, with 5 others joining the club on free transfers from Auxerre, Caen and a few others. We have also seen a few new faces come in on loan but the biggest news will be club favourite Gilbert Imbula leaving to join Marseille in a 6.6 million swoop and could line up against his former club come Sunday.

Marseille Team News:

Marseille coach Elie Baup has had good results so far adding to him team for the challenge in front of them with having spent only £21 million on Lille striker Dimitri Payet, Benjamin Mendy from Le Havre and Saber Khlifa from Evian. A further addition is Guingamp’s defensive midfielder Gilbert Imbula who joined Marseille for just over 6 and a half million in the summer. Baup has also opted for loan options this year with having 5 of them join the ranks for this season.
