Grenoble vs Valenciennes Prediction & Match Preview

Grenoble vs Valenciennes
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 6 March 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Alpes.

The reverse fixture was won by Grenoble back in October 2019. That was a rather one-sided game as the final score was 0-2. But at present both teams are struggling to win in the league.

The hosts have lost both their last 2 league games which make them winless in 4 matches. Valenciennes has also failed to win any of the last 2 matches. Both sides did not trouble the scores in either of those matches as well.

Grenoble vs Valenciennes: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Valenciennes has 23 wins and 2 defeats in 5 recent head to head matches.
  • Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches across all venues.
  • Grenoble won only once at this ground against this opposition.
  • The visitors have 2 wins in all 6 head to head matches at this ground.
  • Both teams scored in 4 of those 6 matches.

Grenoble vs Valenciennes: Prediction

There is nothing much to separate these two teams. A mere 4 points give Valenciennes the advantage in the league table.  The hosts are coming into this match after back to back defeats. Valenciennes is also winless in two matches on the trot. They have lost 3 in their last 4 matches on the road and the remaining game was a draw. So we are to see a close game with a draw at the final whistle.

Four recent league games of Grenoble had less than 2.5 goals in total. A similar result was observed in 6 of the 8 previous matches of the visitors as well. A goalless draw is also possible since these two have never troubled the scored in their 2 recent league games. So I am backing this match top have a full-time score with less than 2.5 goals.

Grenoble vs Valenciennes: Betting Tips
