France Ligue 2 – Grenoble v Chateauroux Preview (24/8/18)

Match Preview

I wouldn’t say Grenoble are terrific value here or anything, but I am fairly confident they can grind out a win. The newly promoted team have won both home fixtures 1-0 so far and looked solid in the process. They are a no nonsense, fairly well disciplined side who should be strong at their Stade des Alpes base. I really like betting against Chateauroux at the moment because they haven't shown much in any of their games yet. That is especially true from an attacking point of view, something that won't be helped by the suspension of key playmaker Sidy Sarr who is banned for 3 games. Chateauroux aren’t offering much threat in the final third so Grenoble should be able to keep another clean sheet. It's all about whether or not they can score themselves. I think they will so I’m happy to back them around the even money mark.

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended bet 1 unit: Grenoble -0.5 @1.99
