Coupe de France
PSG to win & Over 2.5 match goals v Auxerre @ 1.67 (Bet365) – 3 points
PSG come into this game full of form, winning their last 6 games in a row and in France domestically have won 11 games on the trot. This is despite their talismanic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic being injured or suspended for a lot of the games. They have relied a lot on the experience of Lavezzi, Cavani, Lucas and Pastore to carry them through those games and they have done so ably well. In the midfield, they have a lot of skill and quality with Matuidi, Motta and Veratti controlling the middle of the park extremely well that has seen them create a lot of chances for their forwards who have scored 39 goals in that 11 game domestic run; an average of almost 3.5 goals per game. Blanc will know that victory against the Ligue 2 side in Auxerre will showcase a successful season after the initial struggles early on in the campaign.
Auxerre have struggled a lot end this season off well and that has resulted in them not winning a single game since 11th of April, a run of 7 games without victory. Auxerre’s struggles and inability to get promoted has been their lack of finding a high goal scorer. Their leading goal scorer for the campaign has been Gragnic, who did not even average double digit goals, and got only 8 for the season. Defensively they have shown to be quite average through out the campaign and will certainly have to rely a lot on their ability to score first to put pressure on their opponents.
PSG are in sparkling form, and with the goal scoring exploits of Cavani, Ibrahimovic and Lucas up front; one can expect a lot of goals in a PSG victory in the Coupe de France.
