Coupe de France

Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stade Saint Symphorien (Metz).
Both of these Ligue 1 teams are hardly having the best of seasons but one of them will at least be contesting in the quarter finals of the Coupe de France.
The two teams come together where Metz the home side are bottom of the league. In recent weeks they have shown great fight and whilst they have lost a few more games along the way those defeats have come to the likes of Monaco and Marseille. Metz has grown into a very confident team and they have the advantage of being at home for this showdown.
As for Caen, at the weekend they earned a hard fought win over Nantes when they won 3-2 in a thrilling game. In the league away form is what has let down the club this season where they have lost 7 games from the 11 played. They have scored just 7 goals on the road all season.

Metz vs Caen: Prediction
So Metz has a dilemma. How many of their regular players will start this game? The problem is that they really have to put all of their resources into staying up in Ligue 1. In some ways a cup game comes as a distraction. Ligue 1 status is more important than the cup for Metz right now. We expect a good fight though and for this reason this match should be a very close one.
