GFC Ajaccio vs Grenoble Foot
Coupe de France
Date: Saturday, 6th January 2017
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Ange Casanova (Ajaccio).
It’s the round of 64 in the Coupe de France and Ligue 2 side GFC Ajaccio will take on amateur league side Grenoble Foot 38.
GFC Ajaccio are just five points above the relegation zone and come into this match having lost their last two Ligue 2 matches. Still 60% of their overall points has come at home and the club will feel that this game over an amateur side should be achievable. Whilst a cup run could be seen as a distraction compared to their Ligue 2 plight, it could also work the other way and give the club much needed confidence.
Grenoble better known to fans as GF38 will be happy to just be at this stage of the competition and will come into this game to enjoy themselves and try to achieve a minor shock. They will have nothing to lose, but we could see a game that becomes quickly predictable with GFC Ajaccio claiming most of the possession and 11 men forced to defend deep in Grenoble.
GFC Ajaccio vs Grenoble Foot: Head to Head
There are no previous head to head matches between the two sides
GFC Ajaccio vs Grenoble Foot: Prediction
At home GFC Ajaccio have scored just 8 goals all season and whilst we expect the home side to advance to the next round we don’t expect a high scoring game. Grenoble will come here to frustrate their opponents and in all honesty their isn’t a huge difference between the sides when it comes to quality. Grenoble’s game plan will be to defend, soak up the pressure and then counter attack. Again value is with the away side.
