Paris Saint-Germain vs Saint-Etienne
Coupe de France
Date: Friday, 24 July 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de France (Paris – Saint-Denis)
Even though the league season is cancelled the Parisians are in no mood to slow down. They look to add yet another title to their trophy cabinet as they face the Saints in the final of French Cup.
Last time Rennes took the honours from Neymar and company. But this time they are determined to win the title for a record 13th time.
The visitors, however, had a horrific league season. When the competition finished they were on 30 points in the 17th position.
With just 7 points between them and the relegation zone, they were fortunate that the season was cancelled.
Compared to PSG they had a comparatively easy journey in this edition of the Cup.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Saint-Etienne: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Paris is on an active four-match winning run against this opposition.
- They remain unbeaten in all competitions against Etienne in over 8 years.
- The Parisians have not lost in any of their last 20 domestic fixtures.
- They have scored 4 or more goals in their last six competitive games.
PSG vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
The champions of France will be ruthless against this Saints side considering both their recent performances.
PSG had to face a strong Lyon squad in the semi-finals. But it was all too easy for them as Kylian Mbappe lead from the front with a hat trick.
Paris scored five times and won the game 1-5. They have scored 3 or more goals in three cup matches so far. So we can expect a goal-fest on Friday too.
In the last 16, the Saints had to fight for a win over second division team Paris FC. That match finished 2-3 in favour of Etienne, but there would not be a comeback against a defensively strong team like Paris.
They also had trouble in scoring against Rennes in the semis. Fortunately for them, a late goal gave them the entry to this final.
In the league, the Saints had an average attacking performance with a scoring average of one goal per game.
In short, I am expecting a match with more than 3.5 goals with only one team scoring them.
