PSG vs Nice in the French Cup on Jan 31. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

PSG vs Nice in the French Cup on Jan 31. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

We have ourselves a potential cracker in the Coupe de France as Ligue 1 table-topping Paris St Germain host second-placed Nice.

And both sides come into this in rather exemplary form. PSG’s only defeat in their last 19 games came against Manchester City in the Champions League, while Nice have won all of their last six matches.

Something’s gotta give, so what we could end up with is a tight affair in the French capital.

Kindly note that all information in this preview, including whether or not the event will take place, is subject to change due to Covid-19.

Draw

Thanks to a run of just one defeat in their opening 22 Ligue 1 games, PSG find themselves 11 points clear of Nice at the summit of the table.

And their home record is almost unblemished. Mauricio Pochettino’s side haven’t lost a competitive game at home since April, while it’s more than a decade since Nice left Paris with a victory.

But that said, Nice did come away from the Parc des Princes with a point last time they faced each other, in a 0-0 draw in early December, and with the visitors in decent form as we approach this one, we think it’s worth taking a chance on the draw once again at 4.50.

PSG Form, squad news, opinion

Let’s face it, the Ligue 1 title race is all but over, with PSG having a clear lead at the top of the table.

But things haven’t been completely rosey in the City of Love, with the signing of Lionel Messi proving somewhat underwhelming, while Neymar continues to struggle with injury.

There’s also the unsolved future of Kylian Mbappe, who continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid, and his potential departure would be a huge dent in the club’s ambitions to join the top table of European football.

Champions League success is paramount to that, so the Parisians won’t be relishing a last-16 clash against Madrid, in a tie that you have to make Los Blancos favourites for.

Lose that, and PSG’s season is all but over, irrespective of their success in the league and Coupe de France.

Nice Form, squad news, opinion

It was a poor season for Nice last time out, with a ninth-place finish going alongside dismal displays in both the Coupe de France and the Europa League, where they exited at the group stage.

But they’re certainly making up for that this season and their six-match winning streak has taken them up the dizzy heights of second place, which would automatically qualify them for Champions League football next season.

Their run so far has hardly seen them blow teams away, with their biggest victory coming in a 3-0 victory at Brest, but their success has been underpinned by an excellent defensive record that is only bettered by third-placed Marseille. At the time of writing, both PSG and Nice have conceded the same number of goals in Ligue 1.

They will have to overcome a shoddy recent record against Paris to make it through to the Coupe de France quarter finals, but having won their last four away games, and with PSG likely to rest a number of players for this one, there’s no reason why they can’t take this the distance.

History

These two have faced off plenty of times down the years, and before PSG’s takeover there wasn’t too much to separate them in the head-to-head.

However, in the decade that has followed, PSG have had the upper hand, losing only once in their last 20 meetings, including five victories in the seven most recent clashes.

About the Venue

The Monday night Coupe de France clash will take place at the Parc des Princes, where PSG haven’t lost a cup game for more than seven years.

Two of the last three meetings between the two in Paris have ended in draws, though, so Nice are certainly capable of equipping themselves for trips to the toughest hunting ground in France.

Crowd limits as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic are set to be relaxed from the start of February, but with this one taking place on the final day of January, we will have a limited capacity, which is likely to help the visitors.

Conclusion

There doesn’t tend to be a great deal of value when it comes to backing PSG in home games, and even more so when you take into account the fact that the Coupe de France is at the bottom of the priority list.

We recommend exercising some caution and waiting until we see the line-ups before placing a bet, but in the meantime, the value bet is for Nice to make a game of it and grab a draw in 90 minutes.
