Grenoble vs Niort Prediction
Grenoble stood their ground when they faced one of the toppers, Lens FC, on the road in their previous encounter as the clash ended in a goalless draw. The host is on a four-game unbeaten streak in their overall fixtures.
They have recorded only two losses in their last ten matches across all major contests and both of the defeats came away from home.
On the other hand, Niorts have shown no signs of promise in the league. However, they did manage to find three points in the league after 8 consecutive winless runs. Their prior clash was at home with Orleans and they won with a 2-0 scorecard.
Sadly, Niort has lost six of their last ten overall fixtures in all major games. Also to make things worse for Niort, the 0-1 win against Orleans in late August last year was their previous win on the road in the campaign.
Throwing light upon the fact that Grenoble has stayed unbeaten in their last five h2h clashes with Niort, it seems like the odds are against the visitors in the clash.
Grenoble has lost only one of their 11 home matches with 8 draws along with it so far this league season. In sharp contrast, Niort has lost 7 and won just 2 of their 12 away fixtures in the campaign until now.
From this, we can see that the host can make the best use of their home ground advantage. To be safer, Draw no bet upon Grenoble will likely be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
Furthermore, Grenoble has scored only nine goals in their 11 appearances at home in the league. So, the total score will probably be under 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
