Coupe de France
PSG WIN & Both Teams to Score @ 3.65 (888Sport) – 2 points
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – 2 Goals @ 3.65 (888Sport) – 0.5 points
PSG are looking in great form coming into the finals of the Coupe de France after completely dominating the Ligue 1 and also securing the Coupe de Ligue title, to already secure a domestic double for them and a win tonight will help them push to domestic treble. They will look to their talismanic forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic to lead them to victory in his last ever game for PSG. He already signed off with 2 goals in the league, and a repeat of that along with sealing the title for PSG will be the icing on the cake for the LEGEND of Paris. While they have a lot of talent like Cavani, Lucas, Di Maria, Matuidi as players who will attack and be able to secure enough goals for them. The backline of PSG have been struggling against the pressure of good attacking teams as it has seen in the 8 meetings against the 4 teams that are below them in the league Nice, Monaco and Lyon in the league games. In the earlier 2 matches this campaign against Marseille, this has also them concede goals in both those encounters.
Marseille come into this game as the underdogs especially when you look at their performances this season, where they have finished 48 points behind PSG in the league, showcasing the struggles that they have had this season. They have however come into this last 5 games, not losing in any one of this games, winning 3 of them keeping clean sheets while drawing the other 2 games with a 1-1 scoreline. A lot of pressure will be on their forwards Batshuayi, Thauvin and Cabella to find the back of the net as they have continued in their previous meetings. The midfield will be under a lot of pressure with Lassana Diara and Barrada to keep things at the tight against a 3 man centre midfield of PSG. Marseille defence has been quite mixed for this season, but especially struggled against big teams like PSG, Monaco, Nice, Lyon; conceding goals in all those encounters but also managing to find the back of the net in those games.
PSG look strong favourites to smash on and win this game but I expect Marseille will put in a good show and should find the back of the net on current form. I am backing PSG to win with both teams to score as the best opportunity to profit from.
