Valenciennes vs Grenoble
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 15 February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade du Hainaut (Valenciennes).
Grenoble Foot 38 is struggling at the moment, as they won a single match in the last 10. They always use their physical strength to break the opposition’s play. Philippe Hinschberger’s tactics have gone wrong in a couple of occasions, as the team concedes late goals so often. The home team always attack from the right wing and wiping crosses inside the box. Grenoble’s forward line has been missing chances regularly, as they scored 27 goals in this season.
The Athenians are still fighting to survive the relegation battle, as they sit at the bottom half of the table. Reginald Ray and his boys are on the firing line, as they conceded 11 defeats in a whole season. Their defense looks shaky the whole season, as they conceded 39 goals this season. Protecting the lead and conceding late goals has been their problem all season.
