Montpellier vs PSG Top Three Coupe de France Tips

At Punditfeed, we have bias-free football predictions based on extensive research and comprehensive analysis of team stats, H2H, news and players. Here are the top three predictions for Montpellier and PSG:

Note: The odds for Montpellier vs PSG Coupe de France fixture were correct at the time of writing. For updated prices, please confirm with the bookmaker before placing your bet.

Both Teams to Score: No @ 11/8

We expect this to be a tight fixture where both teams will take a cautious approach, hoping to qualify for the finals. While PSG has had some bad games in crucial moments, the visitors come into this game as the favourites. Pochettino’s men hope to turn things around even as their Ligue 1 title hopes dwindle. The Parisians have 11 victories and 3 draws against Montpellier in the last 17 encounters. Moreover, PSG has defeated Montpellier in all their last four meetings.

Clean Sheet: PSG @ 6/4

PSG has kept ten clean sheets in the previous 17 encounters with Montpellier, seven of which were clean-sheet victories. A preview of Ligue 1 performances show that Montpellier has conceded 61 goals while PSG has conceded only 28 in the same number of games. The visitors kept three clean sheets in the last Coupe de France games, all against Ligue 1 outfits. It is why we are backing PSG to tighten up things a bit and bag a clean sheet victory on Wednesday.

Match Result and Total Goals: PSG and Under 3.5 @ 7/4

Montpellier’s shaky defence is a major worry for Michel Der Zakarian. Montpellier’s most difficult game so far in Coupe de France was against Ligue 1 outfit, Strasbourg, in the quarterfinals but which they won 2-0. PSG has faced some tricky opponents in Coupe de France thus far such as Angers, Brest and Ligue 1 title hopefuls, Lille. Given the significance of this fixture, especially to Pochettino, we expect a strong lineup to face Montpellier. However, Montpellier will not let in goals easily which is why we are predicting less than three goals.

Match Preview: Another Semi-Final Test for the Parisians

PSG keeps slipping in their chase for a crown this season. A Ligue 1 draw against Rennes last weekend is the latest drawback. Moreover, the Parisians had had a man sent off in three of their last four games, which include both legs of UCL.

Montpellier

La Paillade is a two-time Coupe de France winner (1928/29 and 1989/90) and two-time runners-up in the competition. After twenty years, Montpellier faces a hostile opponent in the semis. The hosts’ last major trophy was in 2011/12 when they lifted Ligue 1 trophy. Reaching this far in the competition is in itself a huge achievement for Michel Der Zakarian. But can they take advantage of a wounded PSG? Well, that will be decided on Wednesday night.

PSG

After a much-publicised appointment of Mauricio Pochettino following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, PSG may be regretting their decision. Tuchel is having his best start to management at Chelsea FC having reached the UCL finals. Back in France, Pochettino is under pressure after the Champions League exit. Ligue 1 title is nearly slipping off the grasp of the Argentine tactician with only two games to go. However, Coupe de France presents the Parisians with a golden chance of bagging a crown this season.
