Grenoble vs Strasbourg
Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 16th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 18:15 UK/ 19:15 CET
Venue: Stade des Alpes (Grenoble).
Strasbourg will face Grenoble in their first Cope de France match this season. The match is scheduled on Wednesday as the visitors look for promotion to the round of 32.
The hosts had a great cup season so far. A 3-0 win over Beaune got them going, and the confidence was definitely seen in the following game against Hyeres which ended 2-1. After promotion to Ligue 2 this season they are doing a pretty good job in the league. With 32 points they are 7th at present and made their intentions clear stating they want to be here next season as well.
This league form has definitely influenced their cup matches as well. Strasbourg are not an easy opponents but we can see a good game from both the sides. But Grenoble are without a win in their last 3 league matches, in which 2 were defeats. Under 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their last 5 games in front of their home fans.
Le Racing are also performing well in Ligue 1, being 6th in the table at present. They have lost only 5 matches in their 20 games so far. With 32 goals scored so far they are definitely on goal scoring form. Away show has also been good recently as they are on a 3 game win streak on the road in all competitions.
Both sides found the net in all 5 of their recent away games and 4 of those matches had more than 2.5 goals in total as well. In 3 of those matches the final score was 2-1 also.
So even though there is a big gap between these two in terms of the level they play, cup matches can be surprising after all.
