Niort to take the win

The first prediction we bring you for this Granville vs Niort clash is from the match result market and we are backing the away side to come out on top. Granville have been a tough nut to crack in recent weeks but, notably, wins have been few and far between as they've  drawn four and won one of their last five games. Niort, however, are in even better form having won four and drawn one of their last five matches. We've also left out one piece of critical information; not only are Niort in better form but they play at a higher level than Granville as well!

Both teams will score

Next up we look at the both teams to score market and we are opting for the ‘no' outcome, which unlocks us the best value on offer from the bookies. The tip isn't all based on betting odds though – the goalscoring and defensive form plays a big role too. Niort have kept two clean sheets in their last four games whilst Granville have failed to score in each of their last two games. Granville have also kept three clean sheets across their past five games as well. These stats aren't ‘banker' worthy but at evens, there is more than enough to make this a worthwhile punt.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Granville odds: 8/3 (3.67) – 27%

Draw odds: 12/5 (3.40) – 29%

Niort odds: 9/11 (1.82) – 55%

The bookmakers have Niort as favourites but priced at 9/11 (1.82) it's arguably not as tight as you'd expect the market to be considering the form and place in the pyramid of both teams. Granville's odds of 8/3 (3.67) and the draw at 12/5 (3.40) complete the match result markets.

The total goals market is another area that is interesting for this game with the bookies fancying a lower scoring match with odds very tight on the under 3.5 goals option.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Granville vs Niort

Granville

Granville have been in good form of late and although they're underdogs in this match they'll hope their defensive solidity can help them cause a shock. The experience of Tony Theault, who operates in deep midfield, and centre back Junior Assoumou will be critical to their game plan.

Predicted lineup – Reulet (GK), Legrand, Assoumou, Buon, Theault, Diarra, Barre, Hamard, Behma, Sawadogo, Fombertasse

Niort

Niort would feel a lot more confident of avoiding a slip up in this game if they were at home. As it happens, the away day makes things a bit more of a banana skin. That will probably lead to a more ‘first team' like selection when it comes to the starting XI, as Niort will want to secure their spot in the next stage of the French Cup.

Predicted lineup – Louchet (GK), Vallier, Kilama, Passi, Matufueni, Sagna, Zemzemi, Benchama, Renel, Boutobba, Bakayoko

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch – Bilal Boutobba

There are not doubts about the key man in this game; that's Niort's Bilal Boutobba. Boutobba has been Niort's main source of goals so far this season as he sits on seven for the campaign from 16 appearances. With the game plan from Granville likely to be one based on keeping chances to a minimum, any sniffs that so come Niort's way will need to be gobbled up. That's where Boutobba comes into play as our player to watch.
