Villefranche v PSG Match Preview
Villefranche have beaten Les Herbiers (2-0) in January and after a lengthy break, they host PSG in Lyon continuing their Coupe de France campaign with surely the game of their season – picking it up through the Cup despite struggles to impress in French 3rd division.
Alain Pochat’s men have beaten Limoges (0-1 in extra time), Chamalieres (on penalties after a goalless draw), and Gravelines (0-3 in extra time) in Coupe de France beforehand. However, their performances in National 1 have been more worrying and few can believe they’ll pose a serious challenge on the day.
Paris Saint-Germain need just an opportunity like that after seeing their four-match winning streak ended by Lyon (2-1) on Sunday, where they took the lead early on but goals from Dembele and Fekir secured a comeback for the home side at this ground.
PSG have been netting numbers of goals on the regular as they beat Amiens (0-3), Guingamp (9-0), Strasbourg (2-0), and Rennes (4-1) beforehand. Thomas Tuchel could rest some of his main stars but there can be no slip-ups and Parisians will surely want a more convincing display in the final third.
We will back PSG to bag a confident win at Groupama Stadium and we’ll stick with an Away win to Nil, which comes off as buying money for old rope at 8/13 with FansBet –as Villefranche struggle to score goals on the regular.
We still feel we should see goals but we’ll now stick our necks out for Under 3.5 Goals FT at 6/4 with BetVictor, hoping we’re in for a one-sided contest but Villefranche will not be all over the place in front of the crowd in Decines-Charpieu.
