PSG hosts Strasbourg
French champion PSG hosts Strasbourg in a match from the 1/16-finals of the Coupe de France. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our winning soccer predictions.
PSG are the number one favourite for the trophy and it’s clear for everyone. In the previous round they didn’t face any problems against Pontivy GSI, enjoying a 4-0 win away from home. In this game Thomas Tuchel showed that he’s serious about this competition, putting a strong team on the pitch, including players like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Thiago Silva and Dani Alves. We expect more of the same against Strasbourg as well.
Far from surprising, PSG are dominating Ligue 1 with an ease. The champions are still unbeaten in the league, having 13 points advantage in front of the 2nd Lille and two games in hand. They have a spectacular record of 17 wins and 2 draws so far. In their last game in the league the Parisians enjoyed a terrific 9-0 win over Guingamp, with both Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani scoring hattricks. This match once again showed us how strong PSG are at this moment.
Strasbourg on the other hand reached the 1/16-finals of the Coupe de France after playing extra time against Grenoble in the previous round. The 90 minutes at the Stade des Alpes ended with a 0-0 draw, but in the injury time Strasbourg’s Kevin Zohi scored a winner and put his team in the next phase.
In Ligue 1 Strasbourg are doing a fine job so far. They are currently 5th in the standings with 32 points, having an excellent season. Their record in the league shows 8 wins, 8 draws and 5 defeats. They are currently in a run of three consecutive wins in the league.
