EA Guingamp's home stadium, the Stade du Roudourou in Guingamp, offers enough space for up to 18378 spectators. The team is currently active in Ligue 1 (group stage - 36th matchday) in 20th place with five failed games out of over 30. In contrast, the club is eliminated in the round of 16 against Olympique Lyon of the Coupe de France. All in all, 64 goals were scored, 64 goals conceded and five out of 36 games triumphed, most of them from Ligue 1. Jocelyn Gourvennec (also) from France looks after and coaches the kickers of the club.
Jordan Ikoko and Johan Larsson (right-back), Karl Johan Johnsson (goalkeeper), Lucas Deaux and Nicolas Benezet (midfielder), Christophe Kerbrat (centre-back) and Nolan Roux (striker) were in the starting line-up this season with 20 more pros. EA Guingamp's last win against OGC Nice was 3 years and 8 months ago. Since then, both football elves have met 16 more times. The last meeting was on December 1, 2018, when EA Guingamp scored -37 points against OGC Nice in the 42 matches since August 5, 1995. With a 70% chance of success in away matches against Toulouse FC, this rival appears to be the most trivial for the French team.
In their last match of the Ligue 1 against Stade Rennes the team wanted to take a risk with the 4-3-3 arrangement (W/D/L: 3/4/8). Eventually, both groups separated with a draw of 1 to 1. After EA Guingamp's 65kg heavy Frenchman Etienne Didot scored the direct goal from 15m on 8 December 2018 in the 17th group phase match of Ligue 1 against SC Amiens, the supporters of the opposing team were also surprised. Sporadically it happens that a game is sealed only starting from the 80th minute, as for instance on 16 March 2019 against Dijon FCO by a goal of the French jersey number 07 Ludovic Blas in minute 86. The team managed such a triumph otherwise once again in the current playing time. Thanks to the late goal in minute 101 by Senegalese jersey number 03 Papy Djilobodji, the group managed to win 2-1 against AS Nancy on 22 January 2019.
In the eleventh group phase match of the Ligue 1 against Racing Strasbourg the 172cm tall Frenchman Nicolas Benezet scored the fastest EAG goal of the current season after 6 minutes through a pass from Etienne Didot. EA Guingamp have suffered a total of five losses in the final minutes of this season, most recently 157 days ago against SC Amiens after a goal from Stiven Mendoza 14 minutes before the final whistle. With a triumph and not even a loss, the 4-1-4-1 arrangement is currently the most successful of the group. The maximum advantage of the first half of two goals was scored by the football team in the 19th Ligue 1 group stage match against AS Monaco. Finally, EA Guingamp also triumphed 2-0.
The team has not won two matches in the current season (against Olympique Lyon, Paris Saint-Germain), although they were leading in the first half. In this team, 81% prefer to shoot with their right foot. Of the average of 11 attempts on the box per game, only 31% actually hit the box, the rest were messed up (42%) or paralysed by the opponent (28%). In the first half EA Guingamp tends to lag behind. In the 21st Ligue 1 group stage match against Paris Saint-Germain on 19 January 2019, the club scored the largest deficit of six full goals this season. The most frequent substitutes are striker Yeni N'Gbakoto, defenders Franck Tabanou, Jeremy Sorbon and Cheik Traore, goalkeeper Marc-Aurele Caillard and midfielder Guessouma Fofana.
Although Louis Carnot is only 18 years old, EA Guingamp has an average age of 26. With an average height of 182cm, the team's pros tend not to be shorter than their rivals. Regarding the body weight, the average of the selection with 75 kg is rather a flyweight, predominantly striking are the right-footed jersey number 02 Jordan Ikoko, the 25-year-old goalkeeper Marc-Aurele Caillard and the 25-year-old jersey number 09 Alexandre Mendy. EA Guingamp's goalkeepers have done a good job in keeping enemy shots on goal. In EAG's own stadium, OGC Nice manifested itself as the fiercest opponent, with eight successes and 25 failures brought out by EA Guingamp. The most effective result was achieved by the team against Stade Rennes (32/13/22). On the other hand, the result against FC Girondins Bordeaux (10/15/34) is the worst ever. With more than six formations, the football team started in the games of the current season (4-1-2-3, 5-4-1, 4-1-4-1, 3-4-3, 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3, 4-4-2).
