New big game at the Stade des Alpes

  • FCG - BOPB

FCG hosts Biarritz Olympique

The "Rouge & Bleu", who had to come back from Montauban disappointed by the result of the match and their performance, will have the opportunity to get their heads back in the right place on Thursday, with the reception in Biarritz. It will obviously not be an easy task, facing a candidate declared in the Top 6, which is currently sixth in the ranking.

With two away victories, the Basques do not necessarily seem to be the most formidable opponents for the Grenoble-based team, who have only lost once in their Stade des Alpes stadium. But the Biarrots pulled off a minor feat less than two weeks ago, bringing down La Rabine in their first defeat of Vannes at their stadium (24-27). 

The Isèrois, who had had all the trouble in the world to take the measure of their opponents and the weather conditions during the first leg in Aguiléra (33-7), were therefore wary of the Isèrois, who had all the trouble in the world to take the measure of their opponents and the weather conditions during the first leg in Aguiléra (33-7). All the more so as the elements could be unleashed again on Thursday evening at the Stade des Alpes.

Latest results

Biarritz remain undefeated at home to Perpignan (18-22) and two convincing victories over Soyaux-Angoulême (20-8) and Vannes (24-27).

The next games

Biarritz will host Nevers for the last match of the boulder. After the truce, the Basques will go to Béziers, then host Valence-Romans.

The last FCG-Biarritz

In the 2017-2018 season, the Grenoble players had beaten the Biarrots in the Pro D2 play-off (33-26). Hans Nkinsi, Nigel Hunt and Daniel Kilioni scored FCG's three tries.
