Paris Saint Germain return to Coupe de France against Nantes, a team they have a good record against even if this match will be their third this month. Nantes edged Lyon in the previous round with an unexpected 3-2, while PSG overcame Bordeaux.
In Ligue1, PSG are fresh off a clash with title hopefuls Lyon, where it took Ibrahimovic a penalty to level the score. However, Matuidi feels his team deserved to win, despite Lyon’s goalkeeper being in one of his finest forms. “We deserved to win, but luck wasn’t on our side. We played well. We played some good football. We were up against an excellent goalkeeper and he should be congratulated,” he told reporters. What PSG need to do now that Champions League is just around the corner is be more clinical in front of the goal. Their last three games prior to said draw against Lyon were identical 1-0 wins and they tend to keep it late to score unless they are being led on the table which is why goals in the second half could be your shoe in bet.
Nantes is 9th in Ligue 1, and looking at their results with only one win in five matches in all competitions and against Nice they managed to keep a clean sheet. Their manager is confident in his team’s abilities to at least frustrate PSG to a draw during regular time. Gapke was once again left out of the squad and Bammou was pushed up front seeing as the striker has now 23 goals scored in Ligue 1. Nantes usually start with four at the back and two defensive midfielders, which allows the general midfield area much more space for creating goalscoring chances.
PSG are going on 30 matches of being undefeated in Coupe de France and in the last six matches against Nantes they managed to score at least two goals, which is why Titan Bet has 1.75 odds for over 2.5 goals per match. Taking into account that PSG also won the last eight matches against Nantes it’s no wonder why they have 1.35 odds to win, as opposed to Nantes 8.50. Nantes have 4.20 odds to win either half, PSG got 1.22 and the first half with the majority of goals has 2.87 odds. We are betting 7 units on PSG to score in both halves with 2.15 odds from Titan Bet, mainly because they have the talent and should find their scoring boots.
