PSG vs Nantes
Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 3 April 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc Des Princes (Paris).
PSG host Nantes in the second semi-final of Coupe de France on Wednesday evening at Parc Des Princes. The hosts have already made mistakes in Coupe de la Ligue (a quarter-final loss to Guingamp) and Champions League (R16 elimination to Manchester United) and their season can’t be regarded as successful in spite of Ligue 1 trophy.
Les Parisiens will be motivated to at least make it a double crown and win French Cup. They have two obstacles to cross to reach the goal. The first one will be easier as they are set to take on out-of-form Nantes.
The difference in quality between the two teams is huge. We particularly fancy the hosts because of Nantes’ slump in from in the second half of the season. The Canaries fell down to 15th place in the league ladder as a consequence.
PSG vs Nantes: Head-to-head
The head to head tradition also speaks entirely in PSG’s favour.
The hosts won 15, drew 3 and lost 3 of 21 clashes against the Canaries at Parc Des Princes.
Les Parisiens will come into this off the back of 16 subsequent wins over Nantes.
The Canaries scored only one goal in last six encounters with PSG.
PSG vs Nantes: Prediction
Thomas Tuchel’s men clinched three successive domestic wins after a shocking Champions League elimination to Manchester United. They scored eight and conceded only one goal in the process. PSG are impeccable on the home pitch in this term of Ligue 1 as they won 15 from 15 league affairs at Parc Des Princes (53-6 goal difference along).
The Canaries, on the other side, scored just 9 goals in 15 away outings in the league (3 wins, 3 draws and 9 defeats in the process). Nantes dropped a two-goal lead to lose 2-3 at home to Lille on Sunday. It was their second consecutive defeat and we just can’t see how they would potentially make an upset here against PSG.
