Grenoble vs Strasbourg – Coupe de France: On the only encounter that takes place this Thursday in France, counting towards the Coupe de France’s round of 16
The local side Grenoble and the visiting side Strasbourg face off in the city of Grenoble, at the Stade des Alps, on a match between two teams that will meet for the first time since 2013.
The home side, coming from the National, the third tier of French football comes into this more or less advanced stage of the French Cup after knocking out Annecy, Tarbes, Ajaccio and Biesheim,
facing in this match a much more difficult opponent than the ones they have had to face along the way here, since they will face a team from Ligue 1.
They are coming off a very positive streak of results, only having 1 loss on the last 15 matches they have played, and curiously having a more positive record away from home than at home.
As for the visiting side, they are making a globally comfortable campaign, being somewhat far from the relegation zone,
and, for now, fulfilling their objectives for the season, despite their poor streak of results recently, where they’ve only won 2 of the last 8 matches they have played, one of them in the French Cup.
Still, the team has very interesting offensive records, but defensively not so much, having conceded on most of the matches they’ve played this season so far.
Grenoble vs Strasbourg – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Strasbourg that is one of the most inconsistent teams in Ligue 1 offensively and defensively, and upon a lower tier team,
I believe that this match might end up being a match with some goals and a good attacking dynamic, but not so much on a defensive level.
