Paris FC vs Saint-Etienne
France – Coupe de France
Date: Saturday, 18th January 2020
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade Charlety (Paris).
The other team in Paris, Paris FC have made it to the round of 32 and their next opponents will be Ligue 1 team Saint Etienne and it is clear that Paris FC even at home will be the underdogs to win this match.
Currently Paris FC are in trouble in Ligue 2 and are having a tough season in 19th place, they are 4 points from safety. The clubs form is very poor with just 1 point won from their last 15 and at home they have lost 65% of their games with just 2 wins this season.
Paris FC reached this stage after they overcame AS Fabregues with a 2-0 win. It wasn’t very impressive with all things considered when we see that they were playing a league side from the 5th tier, although they were away from home.
Saint Etienne got to the round of 32 after beating FC Bastia Borgo 3-0, they are in the 3rd tier of French football. Whilst the club did make some changes they also played a few regulars and it is clear that they are taking this competition seriously.

The teams have not played each other before.
Paris FC v Saint Etienne: Prediction
Saint Etienne have been priced up at around 1.80 to win this game which seems like a generous price. Whilst Paris FC are around 3.75. It seems that the bookmakers understand that the Ligue 1 side may not play their strongest team. At the same time Paris FC have been so poor this season, that perhaps we need to take on Saint Etienne’s price.
The Ligue 1 side have lost their last 4 games in a row and are in 15th position. At the same time perhaps the Coupe de France could be the competition to spark some life into the team and give them something to go for?
