Grenoble Foot vs Strasbourg
Coupe de France
Date: Thursday, 8th February 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Alpes (Grenoble).
Grenoble have done so well to get to this stage of the Coupe de France and only Strasbourg stand in their way to reach an historic quarter final place. Even though Grenoble are a national side the equilivant of Ligue 3, they are only a small price difference for the bookmakers over their Ligue 1 opponents.
The home side come into this game with mixed form but they are in 3rd place in the national league and looking for promotion currently they are secured for a play-off spot for Ligue 2.
Grenoble’s home form is terrible where they have just 2 wins from 9 games. The club has not won a home match since October and face a very tough test against Strasbourg in that respect. Grenoble has acquired most of their points away from home.
Ligue 1 side Strasbourg has blown hot and cold this season but will believe they have a chance to compete in the last 8. Strasbourg are also in poor form having lost 4 of their last 5 matches and away from home they have not won this year.
Grenoble vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
This will be the first time that the teams will meet therefore there is no history between them.
Grenoble vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Not only are both teams in poor form but they have both become goal shy in recent matches. Grenoble for example has scored just 8 goals at home all season. The weather in this part of France will play a huge part, snow showers are here and expected to say. Given that this is a night match temperatures could be freezing and this could be a very tiresome match to watch which could reflect in the play.
