Paris Saint-Germain News and Form – PSG to cruise into the last four

Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain beat Le Mans in the Round of 16 last month to book their spot in yet another League Cup quarter-final. The Parisians were far too strong for the Ligue 2 outfit at the MMArena, with Pablo Sarabia, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria scoring in the 4-1 rout.

PSG, who have won the Coupe de la Ligue eight times, are in frightening form at present. Since falling to a shock defeat away at Dijon in Ligue 1 back on November 1st, Tuchel’s troops have won ten and drawn one of their following 11 in all competitions. The French champions have won seven league and cup games on the spin.

Paris were knocked out at this stage of the competition last season, crashing to a surprise home defeat to eventual finalists Guingamp. However, the club from the French capital have a superb record in this tournament in recent times, and they will want their trophy back this term.

  • PSG have won seven league and cup games in a row
  • Paris are 20 points above Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 at the moment

 

Saint-Etienne News and Form – Difficult night in the capital looms?

In their Round of 16 tie, Claude Puel’s Saint-Etienne edged past Nimes at the Stade des Costieres last month. Goals from Bilal Benkhedim and Edmilson Correia put them two up, with Vlatko Stojanovski pulling one back for the hosts with 20 minutes left.

It’s been a difficult season for Les Verts, who find themselves languishing in the bottom half of the French Ligue 1 table. Despite winning seven times, eight defeats have seriously hindered their momentum. Also, 29 goals conceded is a worry for Puel.

Having lost three in a row in Ligue 1, another cup game is a blessing for Saint-Etienne. Unfortunately, it just so happens to be against the current French champions, who are in staggering form. It could be a tough night in the capital for Puel and his side.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Saint-Etienne Predictions

Paris Saint-Germain win: When these two squared off at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard back in December, PSG ran riot in Saint-Etienne. Neymar put Paris in front after just nine minutes, with Mbappe heling himself to a brace; Mauro Icardi was also on the scoresheet in the 4-0 rout.

With Tuchel’s men in such fine fettle, I can see a similar kind of outcome at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night. PSG have a phenomenal recent record over Saint-Etienne, so back the home team to win -3 at 7/4.

The Red and Blues have been their usually deadly selves in front of goal lately, scoring a staggering 23 times in their last five league and cup affairs. Back PSG to score over 4.5 goals (11/4) in midweek.
