Auxerre played out a draw with Chateauroux, last weekend, on the road. Neither side could get anything out of the match. The whole ninety minutes remained goalless. Mancini was substituted for Sakhi in the 72nd minute, and Feret for Barreto, in the 78th minute. But the tactical approach didn’t provide to be useful.
Grenoble suffered a loss at the hands of Paris FC, last weekend, at home. The single-goal affair saw the home team wasting away chances that could have been easily tipped the scales in their favor. Wamangituka scored the lone goal in the 33rd minute to give the three points to the team from the capital.

Auxerre vs Grenoble Prediction
The visitors are in stiff competition with at least four other teams to ensure their presence in the playoff spots for promotion. The team will be motivated to record the win in this tie. The last h2h match saw Grenoble scoring five past this opponent.
Auxerre has been struggling recently, and consequently their morale is down. They are winless in 12 of their last 15 games. The team seems not even able to utilize their home advantage properly. Auxerre could only win one of their last seven matches in front of their home crowd.
Grenoble was unbeaten in 10 of their last 12 games. They are even more of a scary prospect away from home, evident from the fact that they are currently going through a seven-match unbeaten run.
For the above reasons, we may back the visitors not to lose here and the best option is a double chance since their last two visits to this stadium resulted in defeats.
