France Ligue 2 – Pau v Grenoble Preview (21/11/20)

Match Preview

Pau

  • Found some form after winning 2 of their last 3 games, scoring 7 goals in the process
  • Only 1 home defeat out of 4 so far
  • Centre back Antoine Batisse is suspended
  • Most of the rest of the squad largely injury free

Grenoble

  • Won 5 out of the 8 games they’ve played this season
  • Away form not so good with 3out of 4 defeats
  • No suspensions and the injury list is small

Conclusion & Betting analysis

I have a feeling that Pau might be underestimated a bit here. They have actually played some decent football in recent weeks and the 4-1 victory vs Niort was especially impressive. This is a team suddenly creating chances and actually taking them fairly regularly. You almost feel there is more in the tank and on the counter attack pacey players like Sabaly and Assifuah are worth watching. Grenoble will probably be a tougher test than most of what they’ve faced recently though. The visitors have two games in hand and if they won them would actually sit 2nd in the table. I suspect Pau DNB and over 2 goals is overpriced but let’s just watch and see what happens.

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet: None
