The home side come into the weekend on the back of four successive defeats in the Top 14 Orange, although in fairness to them, three of those four losses have come away from their home ground. During that sequence they have however, played twice against fellow Top 14 club Agen in the Challenge Cup, and emerged victorious on both occasions.

Oyonnax secured a vital 25-12 win last weekend at home against Stade Francais, a result that kept them in touch with the sides immediately above them in the table. However, they still trail Stade by four points, with Pau and Grenoble a further point ahead. Five games on the road in the Top 14 this season, have all ended in defeat for last season's surprise package, and they have yet to secure a single losing bonus point while on away soil.

Bragging rights in the Alpines are up for grabs at the weekend, when Grenoble and Oyonnax meet in the Top 14 tournament at the Stade des Alpes Stadium. The two clubs are in eighth and ninth places respectively in the table after 14 rounds of competition, but neither will feel totally comfortable about the buffer that they have between themselves and La Rochelle and Castres at the bottom of the table.

Grenoble are currently two points ahead of their rivals, and given Oyonnax appalling away from their season, they will expect to extend that lead come the weekend, also providing them with much needed breathing space ahead of the relegation candidates. Oyonnax have managed one win to sit alongside six defeats on the road in this season;s Top 14 Orange tournament. Meanwhile, Grenoble have won six and lost just one Top 14 fixture at the Stades des Alpes.

Grenoble's only home defeat came in their last match on home soil, when they lost a stunning match to Stade Français by 30-43. A match in which they ended up with no reward for playing their part in one of the games of the season. Three tries and a 13 point deficit failing to provide a solitary point.
