Of course, PSG is the favorite of the meeting. “Saint-Etienne” did not beat the upcoming opponent in all tournaments for 20 matches in a row. However, one cannot pay attention to the fact that both teams have not played official games for a long time.
PSG went their way to Saint-Denis in one breath, outplaying Linas-Montleri (6: 0), Lorient (1: 0), Po (2: 0), Dijon (6: 1) and Lyon (5: 1). The Metropolitan Club has won this trophy 12 times, most recently in 2018.
In addition, PSG continues to play in the Champions League, where they knocked out Borussia Dortmund from the tournament in the 1/8 finals with a score of 3:2 on aggregate.
In the championship ended ahead of schedule, the "blue-red" won 22 wins, which brought 68 points, which is 12 more than the nearest pursuer. During the tournament, hosts scored 75 goals and the best snipers in the team were Mbappe (18 goals) and Neymar (13 goals).
In July Thomas Tuchel's wards played three friendly matches, in which they did not concede, but for the sake of truth it is worth noting that Le Havre (9: 0) or Wasland-Beveren (7: 0) would hardly have become worthy opponents for the champion ...
Before today's match the entire core team is in order and ready to enter the field.
In addition, the gaming crisis was exacerbated by an epidemic of injuries, which continues after four months. During the season, the Greens won eight victories and six world wins, which brought them 30 points. The defense conceded 45 goals, while the attack line hit the opponents' goal 29 times. The main goalscorers of the "saints" are Buanga (10 goals) and Amuma (six goals).
In July Claude Puel's charges played five friendly matches, three of which they won, but two games against Anderlecht were lost with a score of 1: 2 and 0: 1.
Monnet-Paquet and Yussuf will not be able to take part in today's game, but the participation of Ruffier and Kabay is still in question.
The final of the Cup will bring special motivation. Opponents will enter this game with a great desire and attitude, while the potential of opponents is quite high. We assume a defensive scheme against the "greens", who are unlikely to risk playing open football with the champion, with the hope of counterattacks, into which there is someone to run away.
In our opinion, the "blue-red" are favorites in this game, but we do not expect defeat and hope for maximum concentration from the "saints".
Our prediction is that Saint-Etienne will win with a handicap (+2.5) and we bet on this on the line of BC 1xBet with odds 1.83
