This Sunday, on the 21st of April, Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain are meeting 10th positioned Nice, in a match that is expected to be extremely spectacular. Since I deeply trust favourites PSG to win this match over their neighbours, I will place a bet on their victory using the odds provided by bet365.
In the quarter-final game with Evian Thonon Gaillard that took place last Wednesday, Carlo Ancelotti harshly criticised the attitude of his players regarding their motivation to win the French Cup. Still, what I found really amazing and fair play, was the fact that the Italian coach eventually took responsibility for the embarrassing performance of his team.
“It is a huge disappointment especially because of the team’s attitude.” were the words of Ancelotti one day after the match. The terrible defeat ended with the team’s hopes of achieving a Ligue 1 Cup, one week after PSG were eliminated from the quarter-finals of the Champions League due to a 3-3 draw secured in the match with Barcelona.
“There was no concentration, no character, too much self-importance” Ancelotti added. These declarations made by Ancelotti are the most interesting hint to take into consideration when judging their next match with Nice, because it seems that the current leaders are at present coping with a slight decline.
However, this time I trust PSG to came back into the cards and prove that their leading position in Ligue 1 is not something random. I will bet 7 units on their victory at 1.45, with odds from bet365.
