Coupe de France: PSG Takes on Montpellier and Monaco versus Vallieres
- When: Wednesday, May 12 – Thursday, May 13
Paris Saint-Germain -1 ½ (-112) Vs Montpellier +1 ½ (-117)
- When: Wednesday, May 12
Based on the French Ligue 1 standings, Montpellier has no chance against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. The home team underdog in this has just 50 points compared to PSG’s 76 points.
But Montpellier will head into this match off a terrific win. On Sunday, May 9, the underdog beat tough squad Strasbourg 3-2. Gaetan Laborde starred for Montpellier.
Laborde scored goals in minute 36 and the 49th minute. Andy Delort scored in the 39th minute, which means that within a span of 13 minutes, Montpellier scored all necessary goals to get by Strasbourg.
The road victory should set up Montpellier to give a good accounting of itself. However, Paris Saint-Germain isn’t Strasbourg.
Going back to Dec. 19, 2019, Paris Saint-Germain has blasted Montpellier in 4 straight. When we write “blast”, we mean PSG has dusted their rivals by at least 2 goals in all 4 victories.
On Feb. 1, 2020, PSG beat the home team 5-0. Paris put a 3-1 beating onto Montpellier in the Dec. 5 match. In the last match, Kylian Mbappe and his mates blew away Mont via a 4-1 score, which is why Paris Saint-Germain covering the handicap is the play.
Soccer Pick: Paris Saint-Germain
As Monaco -1 ½ (-118) Vs Vallieres +1 ½ (+136)
- When: Thursday, May 13
Vallieres is on a terrific 5-match winning streak. The 4-0 victory over Le Puy on April 7 impresses. As does the 2-0 victory against Toulouse on April 20.
But as well as Vallieres has played, they must step up big time to hang with As Monaco. The third-place team on the French Ligue 1 standings, Monaco is just 5 points behind Lille for the top spot and 2 points behind PSG for second-place.
As Monaco has won 4-of-5. The lone loss happened versus Lyon on May 2. Lyonnaise beat Monaco 3-2. On May 9, the road squad in this beat Stade de Reims 1-0.
Don’t expect the favorite to give the home team a break. Monaco should roll to at least a 2-goal victory.
Soccer Pick: As Monaco
