Grenoble vs Villefranche Predictions, Odds, and Picks

This will be one of the most exciting matches of these early rounds of the French Cup, a meeting between teams that have a lot of experience playing at this level of French football.

Grenoble to Win

Grenoble will certainly enter this match as the early favorite, even though there are no true favorites in these kinds of matches. But, with the host having a very good season in Ligue 2 and working hard to get to a point where they can challenge for a Ligue 1 promotion, they will have the edge. Villefranche is one league below Grenoble, vying to have a big second part of the season turn round to give them a chance to fight for promotion as well, so far that doesn't seem that far-fetched.

Under 2.5 Goals

Grenoble has been terrific at the home entire season, especially defensive-wise where they allowed only six goals in eight matches. Villefranche didn't do so well away from home in their six matches during the Third League season scoring seven goals in the process. These teams have a lot of history playing in the lower division system in France, and in their last ten matches, only three ended with more than two goals.

Grenoble looking to further bolster their season

Grenoble had an easy time defeating lower league minnows Illzach Modenheim in the first round of the French Cup by the score of 4-1, and they are following it with improved performances in Ligue 1 where they are undefeated in their previous seven games with five wins in the process. Grenoble doesn't have top strikers, but their coach Vincent Hognon knows how to balance his squad to further the performances of his team. Abdoulie Sanyang is the team's top scorer with five goals, and he should be their go-to guy in this matchup as well.

Grenoble possible lineup: Maubleu, Tchaptchet, Monfray, Diarra, Gersbach, Touray, Bambock, Gaspar, Phaeton, Ba, Tell.

It's a strange season in the National League or the Third Division. Villefranche has ranked eighth with only three points away from the second spot which would promote them to Ligue 2, and at the same time, they are only two points away from the 13th position which would relegate them to the fourth tier of the French football system. The season has been a struggle for a team coached by Herve'Della Maggiore, they did win two games in a row which gave them some breathing space in front of the competition. Ligue 2 season will stop for the World Cup, just like the main division, however that is not the case with League National. It makes sense to continue the season as no team is even close to having some of their players in the World Cup fold.

Villefranche possible lineup: Caruso, Renaut, Obissa, Badji, Dos Santos, da Silva, Sergio, Blanc, Mfomo, Ba, M'Buyi.

Team News:

Grenoble: Bart Straalman is injured.

Villefranche: Jimmy Nirlo and Naim Dhib are doubtful.
