Caen vs PSG
France – Coupe de France (Semi-Final)
Date: Wednesday 18th April 2018
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).
Caen’s biggest match in some years will take place on Wednesday when they host PSG in the Coupe de France semi-finals. PSG wrapped up the league title in fantastic style when they demolished Monaco 7-1 on Sunday evening and the team will have massive confidence coming into this game.
The new French champions will be big odds on favorites to win the game, and for Caen this is their first Coupe de France semi final appearance. They have done well as they had to beat Lyon in the last round and won 1-0 at this stadium. For PSG they eased past Marseille 3-0.
The other semi-final consists of two teams from the third tier of French football and so whoever wins this match will be instant favorite to go on and win the cup. For Caen this remains the dream and even though PSG are much more superior to them, we should believe that Caen will try to give their very best game.
At the weekend Caen’s match with Toulouse had to be called off because of terrible weather, and so at least they have had more time to be fresh for this game. They have won 7 games from 16 played at home this season.

Caen vs PSG: Prediction
PSG’s last away game to St Etienne was the worst performance of their season but the team will be motivated to get to the cup final. It is hard to see past them but their odds are too short and so we need to look at different markets.
