France – Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 21 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
After PSG and Lille, these two are the best teams in the country. As of now, Les Gones are placed fourth in the Ligue 1 table, and they have posted a total of 67 points against their name.
They have been recording wins at a high rate, and they have also been scoring goals at an unbelievable frequency. They are also at home this Wednesday, and here they have been doling out wins in quick succession all through this campaign.
Meanwhile, the Monegasques are placed third in the league table, and have posted a total of 68 points against their name. Thus, these two squads are separated by a single point.
In fact, the top four teams in the French top flight are separated by just four points, and with just five match-days remaining, tensions are running high.
These two squads are desperate for a Champions League ticket, and they need a top-two finish for direct entry.
A win this Wednesday will shift the momentum considerably, and it will drastically influence the race for the top spots.
Thus, expect either squad to give their absolute best. Considering their offensive potential, and the stats in previous h2h encounters, expect a goal-fest this Wednesday.
