Girondins de Bordeaux
Bordeaux won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-1 Ligue 2 loss in their previous game against ESTAC.
Girondins de Bordeaux have been conceding pretty frequently of late, but they have also done enough to score goals themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Girondins de Bordeaux have conceded in 5 of them while also managing to get on the scoresheet in 6 of those games.
Going into this contest, Girondins de Bordeaux are unbeaten in their last 3 league matches at home.

In their previous half-dozen clashes, Grenoble have bagged the sum of 13 goals. Grenoble have also managed to score in every single one of those games. In that time, they have seen 5 goals go into their own net. That pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, of course.

Grenoble manager Vincent Hognon has a number of players out of action. Jessy Benet (Collateral ligament injury) and Allan Tchaptchet (Knee injury) miss out here.
In our opinion, Grenoble should be able to put a goal past this Girondins de Bordeaux outfit, although it probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid a loss.
We reckon that it will be a narrow 2-1 win for Girondins de Bordeaux at full-time. Hopefully this is a good one.
